Already established as the most successful of the new one-design classes in Britain, the Sonata has had a growth rate which would be the envy of some dinghy classes. She is well built, well finished and is really a true little cruising yacht in many ways. She is fun to sail yet seaworthy enough for short cruises. As the Sonata has already shown herself capable of out-sailing larger boats, she is worth racing in handicap events where there is no one-design class.
There are now around 300 Sonatas sailing around the world, all built by Hunter Boats. Why does the Sonata have such appeal? The answer is probably that she is simple and straightforward, but nevertheless a good performer.


A lost key has stopped me taking a photo of the cabin but the owner tells me it is very basic as you would expect from this type of boat.

Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
The Hunter Sonata is a fantastic little boat with good performance, this example has had fortunes spent on her including a new paint job, new mast and up to date sails and rigging, so she is ready to go. This Hunter is aimed at the club racing enthusiast and with just a coat of anti-foul she should be ready for the upcoming season.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
