Hunter 490 Yacht / Sailboat

Hunter 490 yacht Made by Hunter Boats Rochford Essex in the 1970's, 80 Hunter 490 's are said to have been built (I have never seen sail No 80 highest is 41).

The Hunter 490 was designed by Oliver J Lee who was famous for model racing yacht design but also designed the Squib one time Olympic Keel Boat alias Hunter 19, Hunter Europa, also the Hunter 701.

Hunter 490 's are very quick capable, safe small cruisers and can give most of the competition a clean pair of heels. The Hunter 19 "WILLING GRIFFIN" was smallest competitor in the transat.

Hunter 490  Yacht/Sailboat comments and advice



Interested to see your comment about seeing no sail numbers on the Hunter 490 above 80. I have a 490 with the original sail and it's number is 83. I'd be interested to know when it was built
