About this Hunter Channel 32


Boat Details

The Hunter Channel 32 is an easily handled, comfortable cruising yacht from the pen of David Thomas. Offering the sort of accommodation usually found on yachts of that period some 2 foot to 3 foot longer she surprises with her fleet footed passage making and steady helm. Designed to go to sea from the bottom of her generous ballast ratio keels to the top of her easy to handle, fractional CCS (Cockpit control system) rig

With the highly acclaimed David Thomas 'Twin Fins' she is right up there as a 'classic family cruiser by the yachting press and those who know. 

Equally at home coastal cruising or crossing oceans and supported by an active and informative owners association. Offered for sale with a remarkable and fully informative owners manual and record.

said...She is a straight forward, honest, family cruising boat...she has an air of robust competence that will reassure anyone stepping aboard. Her construction is solid and she is sensibly laid out. She will provide, good accommodation and safe sailing for a cruising family almost anywhere.  A thoughtfully developed, practical design. Excellent handling under sail or power, excellent sea worthiness, comfortable and well ventilated.
