Brokers Comments
This Hunter 426 Deck Salon offers the space and accomodations normally found in much larger boats. She is bright, airy and spacious below, with plenty of storage. Coupled with easy single-handed sailing capability and excellent sailing performance, she is perfect for day-sailing, long passage-making or live-aboard. Easy sail-handling with in-mast roller furling, furling genoa and all lines leading aft to the cockpit, make this boat ideal for sailing with limited crew, or single-handed. Her excellent performance on all points of sail make her a comfortable passage-maker, a worthy competitor when racing and, always a fun and responsive boat to sail. This is a well maintained boat with only 405 engine hours. She is in 'sail away' condition; fully air-conditioned with reverse cycle heat and a 'quietly-located', sound-encased 5.5kW generator with only 20 hours. The owner (original) is motivated to sell and will consider all reasonable offers!
