Broker's Comments

Surprisingly spacious for a 28ft boat this Hunter is in exceptional condition for her age, lightly used, with a good sail wardrobe, modern electronics, recent standing rigging and an engine that has only done 861 Hrs since rebuild. She has only had 2 private owners, has never been used for charter and also comes with a free mooring.
