A lovely and well equipped example of the ever popular Hunter Pilot 27. This is a yacht that allows the best of both worlds, sailing outside in the sun or inside the comfortable pilot house in the unlikely event of rain. The bilge keels offer the ability to creek crawl and these British Hunters have also always offered great performance by virtue of the David Thomas designed hulls.
