It’s easy to see why Hunter Horizon 27 twin keelers (twin fin) are so popular. The design by David Thomas, fulfils many of the needs of weekend yacht owners enabling them to get the maximum use out of their investment.
This comfortable boat is easy to sail alone and there’s plenty of space for your family. They sail well giving a good turn of speed, can take the ground and sail in shallow waters.
The accommodation is generous for a vessel of this size, offering 5 possibly 6 berths, with a small Breton bunk up forward, two singles in a good sized saloon and a generous aft cabin with double berth. She also has a separate heads compartment aft, a decent sized nav table and a full cooker in an ample galley.
