Broker's Comments

The Hunter Delta 25 is another example from the successful drawing board of David Thomas. As a cruiser racer, the boat is popular as a competivie club racer, as much as it is a competent coastal cruiser. There is plenty of space in the cockpit for the crew and the side and foredecks feel comfortable when moving forward and working the boat. Down below, there are 4 berths throughout the accommodation, which includes a comfortable saloon, galley and forepeak. The boat is powered by a Yanmar 1GM 10, installed during the current ownership.

This version looks to have been well maintained and benefits from upgraded electrics, sails that look to be in good condition having been lightly used, along with replacement of the rig in the last 10 years.

If you would like any further information, or to arrange a personal viewing, then please contact our office and we would be pleased to help.
