is a Bilge Keel Hunter Horizon 23, built in 1991. We bought her in 2016 from
her original owner who had owned her from new and had her moored at Lympstone,
so she has always been kept on the Exe.
a reluctant sale, but we are not using her as often as we would like due to
trying to refurbish 2 x houses, holding down full time jobs, and having the added
distractions of owning 2 x sailing dinghies, 2 x kayaks, a windsurfer and a
developing fascination with kitesurfing…..you get the picture !.
have used EGRET for extended touring along the south coast, day trips to our
favourite local swimming spot, where we anchor off the shore and swim off the
boat, with a picnic on board or bbq on the beach. However, she is a tough sea
boat and in our ownership has taken part in the IoW Round the Island Race,as
well as taking us to Cherbourg, France and back with no drama.
an ideal boat for the EXE, being of relatively shallow draft, so with a wider sailing
window than deeper draft boats, especially on Spring tides, to get safely in
and out with enough water under the keel.
comes with a 100% reliable, barely run in 2016 Tohatsu 6hp 4 Stroke outboard
engine (fitted with Sail Prop from new) and a 2018 AIS / GPS enabled VHF radio
(which we linked to our chartplotter so AIS targets appear on it in real time –
essential when crossing shipping lanes). The VHF radio and Chartplotter were
bought specifically because they integrate well together – the Chartplotter may
be available under separate negotiation.
Jib is self tacking and all lines run back to the cockpit for ease of single
handed sailing when required. The mainsail benefits from lazy jacks attached to
the sail cover. A cruising chute is included within the sale.
Echomax EM180 was attached to the mast in 2018, in preparation for our trip to
France. There are 2 x batteries on board, trickle charged by a 10W solar panel
(2018) via a SunSaver Duo split charge device.
has a chemical toilet installed, which is a godsend when berthed in a marina
where flushing of sea toilets is prohibited, and also means no worries about
failing sea cocks !. However, a sea toilet can be installed at relatively
little cost if required. The fresh water tank is of the flexible type and was
replaced in 2018.
boat is antifouled and ready for lift in at Exe Sailing Club on 27th
April, where she will be put back on her swing mooring in 01 area.
