At the ten year mark in our history, we have forged a new chapter in our relationship with Hunter Marine. We began in 2001, by offering Hunter sailing yachts as our exclusive membership platform on the water. Now, ten years later, we are unveiling our first Hunter SailTime 39LE. The LE stands for “limited edition.” We are encouraged and excited about this new level of commitment between our two companies!
The new 39LE made its’ debut at the Annapolis Show in early October. But soon, you will begin to see them at your local SailTime base. It is an excellent opportunity for a potential boat owner to gain tremendous value because the boat has been outfitted like no other Hunter before and priced affordably. It can only be purchased into our program.
All SailTime, Hunter yachts are loaded with more features than you normally find on a boat found at a dealer. This has been a driving benefit to boat buyers over the past decade. Now, as they say, we have kicked it up a notch. We start with a dark blue hull accented with gold striping. This is offset with a “toast” colored bimini, dodger and canvas package. The cockpit is dressed up substantially with teak, including twin helm stations that have teak-trimmed wheels! Additional boat features incude a bow thruster, generator and top-of-the-line Raymarine electronics. Down below, all of the cushion fabric is different from what would otherwise be found on a standard Hunter 39. The boat is priced right around $300,000, depending on where delivery is taken. The average Classic membership price is slated to be $895 a month, although individual bases set their own pricing based on their local market. The boat is a real head-turner at any marina and nearly all bases across North America are ready to put one into their fleet now. Contact your local base to get more information.
It is anticipated that in the future, sailors may expect to see an LE version of the ever-popular 33 and 36 models which comprise the majority of boat sizes at most bases today. But the time is right today to begin the process of purchasing one for yourself. This model will hold its value better than a stock boat because of the special features and the dark blue hull. So, if you need to be doing something like this by the end of the year for tax purposes, or any other reason, get together with your local base today to start the wheels turning!
