Broker's Comments

The Hunter Horizon 26 is well known for being a comfortable, solid pocket cruiser. Benefiting from the twin keels, providing both sailing performance and the ability for shoaling sailing and drying out, the boat also has a spacious, double aft cabin. The boat is complemented with a separate heads, roomy galley, saloon , navigation station and folio sized chart table.

This version has been owned since new and looks to have been diligently and professionally maintained and upgraded during the ownership. The engine is more recent and the sails look to be in good condition, having been refurbished. Overall, this boat presents as a tidy and spacious boat for its size. The owner reports good sailing characteristics and performance under engine. The boat also comes with a rigid dinghy and so for anybody looking for a sailing package, capable of coastal cruising, creek crawling and trips to Europe when weather permits, this boat would be an ideal match for single handing and families alike. If you would like to know any more detail, or request a personal viewing, then please do contact our office and we would be delighted to help.
