Hunter - Europa
It is with great sadness that I post this boat for sale. She’s been an amazing boat for the past 10 years and we’ve had many great adventures and races. She comes with a little bit of a pedigree having sailed me single handed Round Britain back in 2008. Sadly forthcoming children forces the sale.
She’s a Hunter Europa, 19 foot, the hull of a squib and an improvement in accommodation on the Hunter 19. She was designed to race across the Channel. My round Britain achievement is shadowed by others who have taken this boats across the Atlantic!
At 19 feet it's an extremely cost efficient boat, moorings in Cowes start at £480, new running rigging is less than £100 and a full coat of paint is under £50.
She is very sea worthy, I have sailed her in 40 knots in the Irish Sea, and fast, she manage 10 knots average with a high of 18 and sustained surfs of 15!
The hull is sound, but could do with a lick of paint on top. The interior comes with full cushions and a curtain to split the two sections of the cabin. It is sparce, but a fresh canvas to be customised as you wish.
Her rigging is not the standard Hunter Europa rigging. It's a fractional rig and was developed by a champion racer optimised for IRC racing.
The sails are in great condition. She comes with a racing main and Jib as well as 3 Symetric Spinnakers. The sails are good for cruising as well, you just get there a bit quicker!
In terms of engines: I have a recently serviced Tohatsu 2.5 hp and an old Honda 5hp, which I haven't tested or used for a number of years.
A trailer is also available.
She is currently in Cowes and can be viewed there, but I can deliver her to any harbour within 20 miles of the Solent.
