    Hunter - Pilot 27 for sale

    Sailing BoatsHunterPilot 27United Kingdom


    Remarks :
    1996 HUNTER PILOT 27, launched 1998.  GRP hull by Hunter Boats, twin bilge keels, 4/5 berths (2 x doubles, 1 x single), blue cushions, blue screen covers, Galley with cooker, sink, ice box, micro wave, Jabasco sea toilet in separate compartment, Nanni 14HP diesel 1996 shaft driven engine, serviced annually, 2 x 12v 2017 batteries, engine alternator, shore power cable, in mast furling, furling Genoa, genoa winch, anchor and kedge, folding bike, full navigation gear, Wetline inflatable grey dinghy carried in davits, O/B, etc.

    A safe reliable cruiser, the current owner has made several trips to Brittany and Channel Islands.  All controls lines are led aft making Sonara an easy boat to sail singlehanded. The dual engine controls and inside steering wheel and remote-control autopilot gives great flexibility and allows sailing in conditions when one might otherwise give it a miss. One of the advantages of the cabin layout is the great panoramic view from the raised dinette in the deck saloon.

    The Hunter Pilot 27 was designed by David Thomas for British Hunter, and was built from 1996 to 2005 with around 100 in total produced. Although both fin-keel and twin keel versions were built, the twin-keel versions were more popular.  Hunter resolutely refused to call these boats bilge-keelers, preferring the term 'twin fin' to emphasise their performance. The two keels are asymmetric, and angled, to provide lift when heeled.  Consequently, in practice, there is little difference in performance in most conditions between the fin and bilge-keeled British Hunters, both of which provide good stability and sailing performance even in heavy weather.

    British Hunter have always offered their boats both as complete boats and in kit form, though as all structural work was always done in the factory there are rarely major differences between factory-completed and kit boats.
