Broker's Comments

Hunter Impalas were designed as one-design racing boats and have proved very successful as a means of entering an exciting and competitive racing scene without breaking the bank. Being fast and vice-free, means they are also popular as swift family cruisers. This one is set up to both race and cruise. She could use some tidying perhaps, but her fundamental virtues are all present and correct.
