Broker's Comments

These Hunter Horizon's always look smart and a modern type yacht. This one appears to be nice and tidy and is of course a rare opportunity to buy with an inboard Yanmar engine instead of the often found outboard.
In 2016 there were new engine mounts including shaft aligning and new standing rigging 2018.
