The Hustler 25.5 is a pretty family cruiser with quick performance and impeccable manners, ideal for those who want to combine fast cruising with a spot of club racing on a modest budget. Hebe benefits from having had the original engine replaced with a Lombardini 9hp diesel inboard engine and externally appears to be in good condition for her year with new furling headsail fitted. Internally she has been refitted to a good standard as can be seen. Hebe is Sold as Seen due to her age.
Upgrade to larger boat forces sale, hence competitive pricing for a quick sale, she was launched in August 2020 with new antifoul and ready to be sailed away! Note mooring/berth is not included in the sale.
