Hunter Horizon 26.Builder British Hunter.The Hunter Horizon 26 is a small cruising yacht with good accommodation and performance in a compact form. 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”.Year 1986.LOA 26′ 4″.Sail area 290 sq ft main and jib.

Introduced in 1984, the Horizon 26 design was one of the first small British-built boats to have what was then the unusual feature of an aft cabin and aft heads. The design was a success, with about 160 built in four years, and led on to the later Horizon 27, 272 and 273 variants. Although fin and lift-keel Horizon 26s were built, the majority were twin bilge keeled, these twin keels being fairly deep and giving good performance under sail. The Horizon 26 design remained in production until 1988.The Horizon 26 was designed to have the choice of an outboard in a cockpit well, typically 6 to 9 hp, or a small inboard engine – usually a 9 hp Yanmar.Winetrek has just been antifouled, valeted, polished, engine service and is now back in the water ready to go on the Isle Of Wight. I am selling this on behalf of my elderly father who is sadly no longer able to sail due to poor health. My father is the second owner of the boat and has owned it for circa 21 years and he purchased it from a Doctor who sailed it across the channel 3 times and brought back some bottles of wine from France hence the name!!. Over the last 21 years my father has sailed her in the solent a handful of times each season.
