The Hunter 38 is one of the most well conceived and desirable models produced by Hunter.  With her excellent maintenance, many custom upgrades, and sharp price, FREE BIRD stands out among the other Hunter 38s on the market.  


***FRESH WATER !! (almost) ***

SALINITY*CORROSION*SUNLIGHT      Many people are unaware that the salinity of the water of the Northern Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries is a small fraction of ocean water salinity (0-30% of ocean salinity, depending on location and recent rainfall).  Upper tributaries (where FREE BIRD has been kept since 2011) in particular, are often close to ZERO SALINITY, similar to the Great Lakes, Lake Champlain, etc.  Some of the highly corrosive effects of ocean water on vessels kept in high salt environments are readily apparent; but many remain hidden until "disaster strikes."  Compared to boats in Florida and other "low-latitude" areas, the effect of UV sunlight is also greatly minimized on northern boats.  

In addition to FREE BIRD benefiting from less UV and minimal salinity, she has been hauled and covered every winter (since 2011), further minimizing any impact of "exposure to the elements."  Her gelcoat continues to hold a very high lustre - and her metal surfaces are bright and shiny.


Attention (current and aspiring) Hunter owners:


(Other Hunter owners are encouraged and welcome to replicate any of the upgrades on FREE BIRD.  Information is available upon request.)

A VERY SPECIAL OWNER!   In addition to being meticulous about maintenance and care, the owner of FREE BIRD is also a safety and convenience minded electrical engineer.  As such, he enlisted one of the top electrical techincians on the Chesapeake to custom-install a number of over-the-top monitoring and other systems - including many upgrades from standard Hunter specs. These include, AGM batteries, battery monitoring, programmable regulator, LED lighting, oversized alternator, and much more.  Many other systems have also be been upgraded - including a high-water alarm and pump, running rigging refit, dripless shaftseal, etc etc.   Additional details and systems appear under FULL SPECIFICATIONS
