Brokers Comments

The Hunter Ranger 26 is a superb entry level / first family cruising yacht. With a surprising amount of space accommodating 5 berths, separate heads & galley with hob, grill, sink & cool box, this little boat packs quite a huge amount into her size. She also houses a separate navigation station with a chart table, Plotter & VHF. Her saloon feels spacious & access to her saloon is protected by the spray hood. On deck, she has a good sized cockpit with engine controls and tiller steering as well as Raymarine Instruments. In addition she is fitted with 4 Lewmar winches, 2 Sheet & 2 Halyard. The age of her Mainsail & Genoa are unknown but it is believed they are fairly recent & with her lazyjacks & stack pack, she is an easy boat to handle. She was lifted & had new anti-foul applied in February 2019.

Designed by the renown David Thomas and with the advantage of a Bilge Keel meaning she can safely dry out, these family cruisers are very desirable. With her efficient layout, this Hunter Horizon 26 offers everything you could need for fun family sailing in coastal waters & offers exceptionally good value for money. It is a great, entry level cruiser that can accommodate all the family & is sure to provide a great deal of fun for everyone. She is currently lying ashore Southampton.
