Brokers Comments

The Hunter Horizon 23 is a superb entry level / first family cruising yacht. With a surprising amount of space accommodating 4 berths, separate heads & galley with hob, sink & cool box, this little boat packs quite a huge amount into her size. She also houses a separate navigation station with a chart table. Her saloon is light & airy thanks to the numerous windows & access to her saloon is protected by the spray hood. On deck, she has a good sized cockpit with engine controls and tiller steering & she is designed to be easy to sail with a self-tacking furling foresail and all lines led aft to the cockpit.

With a good inventory & equipment list coupled with her efficient layout, this Hunter Horizon 23 offers everything you could need for fun family sailing in coastal waters & is presented in overall good condition and has had its standing rigging replaced only 3 years ago. It has also recently had new antifoul & clean. This is a great, entry level cruiser that can accommodate all the family & is sure to provide a great deal of fun for everyone.

She is currently lying ashore in Southampton & viewing can be arranged through Aspire Boat Sales.
