For sale here is our very well appointed 23 foot Hunter Duette called Aria. We have owned Aria for 2 years and have had so much fun and great adventures on her. Purchased as a small boat to introduce my partner and child to sailing without breaking the bank and we are now ready to move onto something a bit bigger.Twin keeled, she is ideal for the East Coast allowing access to all the creek and back waters that we are blessed with. Going to miss being the only boat on a small creek with nothing but the sound of wading birds to interrupt the peace.Based on the Sonata Mark II the Duettes have good pointing ability and are surprisingly good to windward.All lines led aft to the cockpit, so ideal and easily sailed single/short handed. She really is one of the best kept and maintained examples of these great boats, that’ll you’ll find in the area. 4 berth, with double in fore peak and two singles in saloon. Small galley area with cooker and sink.Cushions and curtains re-upholstered in 2017 so still like newEquipment:Slab reefed battened mainRoller Furling Genoa (UV Strip replaced 2017)Storm GibCruising shoot Spare mainSimrad Tiller pilotCobra DSC base VHF (2018)NASA Depth gauge and Log8hp Tohatsu 2 Stroke Sail Pro (charge coil fitted) New high thrust prop fitted 2019 Engine serviced April 2019Hand held GPSTMC sea toilet under bed in fore peakSingle hobb gimbled cookerMast head tricolour LED Nav/Anchor lights EXTRAS:Plenty of east coast charts and 2018 AlmanacBinocularsBuntingAnchor ballStow away dining table for saloon areaEngine was serviced in April 2019 with receipts for new impeller and high thrust propBoat was laid up 2018/19 winter. Rubbed back to gel coat and antifouled. Coveline stripes were also replaced and hull compounded, detailed and waxed.Bad bits:Spray hood is getting a bit tatty and could do with repair, replacing. Boom cover, fully functional but faded. Anchor although functional and has been used all this summer is corroded and was going to be on my list for replacing this winter. That’s pretty much it. She is still currently afloat so sea trials can be arranged. For serious buyers I can arrange to have her lifted with the cost to be negotiated on the selling price if a deal is made. Happy to answer and questions.UPDATE 13/10/2019 – Just uploaded pics of her interior
