BROKER’S COMMENT: 1994 Hunter Legend 37.5 was one of Hunter\'s most successful models.  The boat is exceptionally bright and airy. It has a very spacious layout for a boat of this size;  5 hatches and 9 opening ports for excellent cross ventilation;  and she can sleep seven. It is a proven coastal cruiser with a fractional rig and large sail area, coupled with a shoal-draft wing keel, spade rudder and sleek hull lines. The vessel quickly reaches hull speed even in light air.  "Crescendo" has been well cared for and she is very clean. She is a fresh-water boat that I sourced for the owner in Lake Erie.
