Remarks:

Afloat on what is arguably one of the most picturesque and best located moorings on the Broads, this very well presented Hunter Horizon 23 has been maintained by the current owner of some 10 years with little regard to cost. With a self tacking jib on a roller reefing system, which makes for easy single handed sailing, the owner states that she “sails and handles beautifully, under sail and motor”. The Hunter Horizon 23 has a very well appointed interior with one of the best heads compartments in a boat of her size and with ample accommodation space for four plus two children making her an ideal compact family sailing cruiser. Sadly for sale due to relocation.

MOORING: It’s understood that the vessel’s northern Broads mooring (paid for 2018 season, current cost approximately £1,300 per annum) could be transferred to the purchaser subject to agreement from the mooring owner.
