    A compact family cruiser, the Hunter Horizon 23 offers a comfortable interior with very good sailing ability, and particularly easy handling, with a fractional rig with self-tacking jib. The Horizon 23 packs an amazing amount of space into a small and hence cheap to moor hull. A river mooring in North Devon is available with the boat if required.

    Owners Comments


    I would like to emphasise what a fast boat she is to windward, particularly in a fresh breeze. Some of this is due to the ease of tacking with a self- tacking jib, but she also "likes" a good breeze. we have consistently been first over the line in our local Club races against Westerlies, Tomahawks etc. These races generally involve a beat to windward against a strong incoming tide.
