This Hunter Horizon is a good performance mid range cruiser which we have owned since 2011. Hunter designs are modern and they sail well. She is a light and responsive yacht and has been sailed constantly in the Portsmouth, Southampton, Lymington, Poole and Weymouth region whilst in our care. She has been kept to a very good
standard throughout, being brought ashore every year for the last 7 years for full winter maintenance, except for one year – this omission due to a timing conflict with moving house.
Her hull is GRP and she is copper coated with no signs of osmosis. A full survey is welcome if you so wish.
She has twin Keels with a shallow draft of 3ft 3 inches. Ideal for bays in the Solent area.
Her layout consists of two cabins (main and aft), separate heads with basin, galley, chart table and dining table. During our care, we installed a new gas hob and grill in the galley
We have also installed flexible synthetic teak decking in the cock pit and in the main cabin.
The engine is a 9.8hp 2 stroke 4 cylinder outboard that is
located in the cockpit engine compartment inboard. There is a remote throttle located outside this compartment for ease of use. The engine itself is located on a pulley system so that the propeller can be lifted up out of the water and inside the engine compartment if required; thereby negating drag. The engine has just been serviced with a complete oil change. It has low running hours – we like to sail rather than motor whenever and wherever possible.
All the running and standing rigging was replaced in 2011 by us (receipt available).
All the hauls are rigged to the cockpit so she can easily be sailed single handedly.
She has a genoa, a baton mainsail and a cruising chute all of which are in very good condition.
Earlier this year we took the mast down and installed a new NASA Marine Target 2 Wind monitor system.
Her other equipment includes; a Garmin GPS, a Depth Sounder, a Compass and a Nasa Marins SX35 DSC Radio. She also comes with a Tiller pilot – but this came with the yacht when we bought it and we have not used it so therefore we cannot state that it is in working order. She has a Tiller helm.
She has a solar panel located on the wash boards to maintain the battery, the internal battery compartment we have also refurbished.
She has anchor, chains, fenders, manual bilge pump, spray hood, dodgers – in short she is complete and ready to sail.
Reason for sale; no reason other than we want a different boat to sail now.
Currently located ashore for ease of inspection in Hythe, Hampshire.
Price includes a mooring until October 2018 subject to membership of current sailing club.
