|Deck and Hull|
Details of construction appeared as standard for the 2005 Hunter 27. The hull and topsides are constructed of fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) with Baltek end grain balsa coring and vinylester gelcoat. Hull support was by FRP stringers, traverse floors and ½ marine grade plywood bulkheads bonded to the hull, interior partitioning, joinery, and deck moldings. The subject boat generally appears to have been built with commonly accepted materials and to accepted recreational marine industry production standards and practices prevailing at the time of construction.

The Hunter 27 is a roomy boat. Headroom is just over 6' under the main hatch, and almost 5' 10" at the forward end of the main cabin.
The forepeak contains a double berth. Aft of that cabin is a full-width head. Newer Hunter 27s have a holding tank system. Older boats are likely to have portable heads.
The main cabin has settee berths port and starboard. These settees extend under the forward bulkhead. While this arrangement reduces seating area, it also allows more room for the galley and quarterberth. Its a reasonable trade-off.
To port, at the aft end of the cabin, there is a quarterberth. A folding chart table is located over the forward end of the quarterberth. To starboard is the galley, with sink, two-burner alcohol stove, and icebox.
With eight opening ports, two opening hatches, and the companionway, ventilation in newer Hunter 27s is excellent at anchor in good weather. Older models have fewer opening ports. As with many boats, there is no provision for ventilation in heavy weather.
With a molded glass headliner, teak-finished bulkheads, solid teak trim, and teak cabin sole, the cabin has a finished appearance. There is good storage for a boat of this size for short-term cruising.
