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 Impalas have an impressive history, a strong owners association and, if looked after well enough, have shown to increase in value.

This racer/cruiser one-design comes with a comprehensive inventory of sails and professionally resprayed topsides.

For cruising the interior could do with a bit of tlc but she is well equipped, sporty and ready to race.
