Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.

A very 'loved' Hunter Horizon sailing yacht. The current owner has enjoyed many years of good sailing and there are many more for the new owner. These boats have a steady and reliable reputation for economic cruising and this boat is ready for coastal and offshore passage making .

I found that the boat had been obviously 'cared for' and she will make a great platform for some good holidays. Her bilge keel will allow for shallow water exploring. Her interior layout had a nice feel and she should be very comfortable as she retains many features you would find on a more modern vessel. And yet you should be able to get afloat with a boat that by modern standards would cost more.

Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
