The Hunter Legend 295 is a modern small sailing cruiser with wheel steering and excellent interior headroom. She has a largely open plan interior which gives a feeling of space below, and a substantial fractional rig and a lead winged keel. The Hunter Legends are very much designed for comfort in a marina, but also provide good sailing performance in the sort of light to moderate conditions most leisure sailors actually go out in.

Hunter Marine, until recently run by Warren Luhrs, has since the early 1970s been a major US builder of sailing yachts, based in Florida. Although most of their production boats were aimed squarely at the family coastal cruising market they also built a number of racing designs including the water ballasted Open 60 "Thursdays Child", in which Luhrs set a record-breaking time in the 1984 OSTAR transatlantic race, and went on to set another record from New York to San Francisco round Cape Horn in 1989. In 2013 Hunter Marine in the USA became Marlow Hunter, and continues to build sailing yachts up to 50 feet in length.

The Hunter 295 was introduced in 1994 and has a large cockpit with wheel steering and a "walk-through" sugarscoop transom. The interior is fully open plan except for an enclosed heads, and has an aft double berth that is athwartships instead of fore and aft. The rig has a large roached fully battened mainsail and a relatively small headsail. This yacht was imported to the UK new by Hunter's then distributors Opal Marine.

When marketed in the UK, the American Hunters were normally sold as “Hunter Legends” to avoid confusion with the "British Hunters" which were entirely different. For a time the US Hunter Marine operated a second factory in Portland in Dorset, England, but this has now closed.
