Hunter Horizon 27 Twin Keel - Details

This boat is sold, but this is something similar

Designed by David Thomas and built by Hunter Boats of Essex.

A twin keeler equipped with slab reefing on the main (with lazyjacks and stack pack), roller reefing on the head sail and a nearly new Yanmar diesel engine.

With a reliable and economical Yanmar GM10 diesel engine (new in 2004) and shaft drive, the vessel has only been lightly used and has exceptionally low engine hours.

She has full standing headroom in the galley/heads area, an open plan saloon and separate heads compartment.

The cockpit has a large locker to port and is fitted with the Navman log/depth/wind instruments.

New dodgers and spray hood were fitted in 2007.

The current owners bought her in 2007 and carried out an extensive refit with no expense spared to prepare her for cruising. In 2008 she completed a two week cruise to Ireland from North Wales.
