Brokers Comments

The Hunter 27 OOD is designed to be a good entry level cruiser / racer yacht. With a surprising amount of space accommodating 6 berths, separate heads & galley with hob, grill, sink & cool box, this little boat packs quite a lot into her size. She also houses a separate navigation station with a chart table. Her saloon has a good 6ft standing headroom & access is protected by the spray hood. On deck, she has a good sized cockpit with engine controls and tiller steering as well as NASA Instruments & she is designed to be sailed short handed with a furling foresail and all lines led aft to the cockpit.


This Hunter 27 OOD has recently had new antifoul applied and a full polish & valet completed as well as an engine service.. She had new sails in 2012 & in 2010 her engine underwent a full overhaul by a Yanmar Main Dealer main dealer. If you are looking for an affordable entry level cruiser / racer, then a Hunter 27 OOD should be on your list.
