Broker's Comments

If you want a great compromise between racing & cruising, and all on a kindly budget, then look no further. Said to be a joy to sail, Hunter Impala's have an impressive history, a strong owners association and, if looked after well enough, have shown to increase in value.

This example comes with a comprehensive sail inventory, a road trailer and a successful record for sailing competitively (2014 National Class Champion, 2014 Plymouth Icicle Series, 3rd in 2016 Nationals).

Although this vessel is set up for racing, the current owner has also used it for family sailing around the South West and is only selling for a bigger boat.

The interior could do with a bit of t.l.c. but this Hunter Impala is equipped, sporty and ready to race.

No proof of VAT paid status.
