Hunter JY15, 1997

The thing that comes to mind when looking to describe this sailboat is an Osprey. Large, prominent and majestic. Perfect for daysailing, teaching and racing, 8 Lives, this JY15 sailboat, was built in 1997 by Hunter Yachts conforming to a design by the famous yacht architect Rod Johnstone.

8 Lives is presented for sale equipped with Harken interior Hardware (Installed by the First Owner) valued at a total of over $500. But this is not all...

8 Lives was dry sailed for the past 3 years of ownership (by the second owner), creating a healthy and solid hull. Her owners are regretfully selling her due to an excess in boat ownership and maintenance capability.

8 Lives is presented in good condition, with only 3 repairs to her hull in the 23 odd years of sailing she has completed, well below average for this class of boat. Normal cosmetic wear nonwithstanding, she is an excellent family day sailor/racer that has met with success in local Portsmouth racing at her native yacht club.

She does not include a trailer or dolly as her owners have made use of public boat launches at her native club, one with which she has been present since new. Although one can be provided for $500 extra.

Price: $1200 without trailer
