Remarks:

Practical Boat Owner magazine described the Hunter Horizon 23 as “a boat that’s comfortable, capable, predictable, manoeuvrable, reasonably fast, toughly built, easy to manage short-handed and amazingly comfortable for her size” in their 2006 review of the model, and went on to conclude that “This is a boat that makes you realise how much a well-designed 23 footer can offer”. What more is there that I can add?!

This much loved Hunter Horizon 23 is sadly for sale due to the passing of time. Requiring just a little tidying/cleaning and antifouling prior to launching, this well equipped yacht could very quickly be put back into commission. A great option for a couple or small family for Broads or coastal cruising.

This boat will be sold as seen.
