Hunter 26', 1996

  • Water Ballast with Trailer.
  • She is in above average condition, and has had continuous care, maintenance and upgrading. We are only selling because we have bought a bigger boat for longer cruises.
  • We have sailed this boat all over the Florida Panhandle as well as numerous lakes in the South East. She is a fantastic boat for a Couple or Small Family.
  • Her accommodations include an enclosed head, a queen sized Aft berth w/ new Hella fan, and a decent sized V-berth with custom Privacy Curtains.
  • The Galley is very functional, with LOTS of storage and the spacious cockpit has an open transom, stern rail seats, and is large enough to seat 6 to 8 adults.
  • The mast raising system is simple and robust, and combined with the dual axle trailer makes this the ultimate "Maxi trailerable" bringing remote cruising destinations within easy reach.
