The port locker has been professionally modified to house this larger and more powerful Yamaha outboard engine. It employs special gear ratios and a large diameter dual thrust prop to give extra power through the water both in forward and reverse gears. The result delivers excellent perfomance and fuel consumption, thereby solving problems that have been encountered in other Horizon 23s. The cost was in excess of £3000.

Broker's Comments

This is a very well presented version of the popular Hunter Horizon 23. She has been extensively upgraded and carefully maintained. For sale including her own twin axle braked road trailer she could be towed to a new home or taken on holidays. There appears to be nothing to do but sail away!
