Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
The Hunter Horizon 26 is a small cruising yacht with good accommodation and performance in a compact form. This is a 1989 Model of this popular little cruiser. Stepping on board my first impressions where of a well looked after little boat, the decks are clean and the cockpit sole looks clean and fresh. Down below she has a deep red upholstery which looks good in the small cabin. The table opens to give room for all the crew to sit round. The current owner says that many of the instruments are almost new. A seemingly well-kept little boat for someone who wants to potter around the Solent. According to The Hunters are amongst the best performing bilge-keeled yachts on the market, 'Yachting Monthly' describing them as a ".... lively yet stable boat to sail, light on the helm and responsive".

This Hunter Horizon 26 has been personally photographed and viewed by Roger Drewery of Boatshed Hamble. Click here for contact details.
