Remarks:

The Hunter Horizon 23 has a very well appointed interior with a comfortable saloon, L-shaped galley, one of the best heads compartments in a boat of her size (this one with a sea toilet with holding tank) and plenty of storage space throughout. This very well presented example also boasts some nice additional features such as her lovely strip wood cabin sole and fitted cocktail cabinet! She has been owned, sailed and loved by the current (and only third) owners for some 18 years, cruising both the Norfolk Broads and east coast during that time, and she is now offered for sale due to the purchase of a larger yacht. Easily handled and offering good performance, the Hunter Horizon 23 is a great small sailing cruiser for either a couple or a small family.
