Build photo Interior of a Channel 31
Channel 31 combines speed, safety and comfort with both the deep fin racing keel and the twin fin versions, achieving category A ocean status. She has all the British Hunter attributes of high standard of build, ease of handling, and a sailing performance combined with many new features to appeal to sailors of all levels.
Below decks she boasts a large well-lit saloon with 6ft plus headroom and two settee berths, both 6ft 3in length and 2ft wide. The L-shaped galley has a deep icebox and a better than average worktop with good deep fiddles. A two burner cooker with oven and grill is standard. She has an extremely well appointed heads compartment with a large hanging wet locker, and has stowage in abundance. Her cavernous aft master cabin has a full-length berth for two measuring 6ft 6in x 6ft 4in, a changing area and a hanging locker; what’s more this stunning boat will comfortably sleep a further four adults in the saloon and forward cabin.
With her comfortable accommodation and sleek but robust lines, her high ballast ratio, powerful diesel engine, fractional rig, and internal GRP module matrix making a very strong monocoque structure, the Channel 31 is an extremely stiff and safe vessel ahead from the rest as an option.
The typical engine is a Yanmar 2GM20F although later boats may have an alternative Yanmar or Beta engine.
