Hunter Ranger 265
Advert added to marketplace: 16th December 2017
Meticulously maintained by her current and former owners with many renewals and upgrades to a high standard.
The fractional rig with self tacking jib makes it easy to sail and a joy to up rivers with shallow draft twin keels.
She is also great offshore as she sails quite upright and is comfortable and dry in a sea, making good passage times.
In light winds the Scooper Asymmetric sail is easy to rig and can also be hauled in to beat to windward, with a snuffer sock stowing is easy too.
The interior is in superb condition which is testament to the quality of materials used and modern open design gives and airy feel with lots of practical stowage. The cockpit has a new custom made tent enclosure that massively increases the useable space when moored up making this boat ideal for coastal cruising holidays.
Yanmar 1GM10 9HP diesel regularly serviced, consumption is very low at approximately 1 litre/hour. The 2 bladed propeller is on a shaft drive, which is fitted with a rope cutter. Fuel tank capacity is 25L.
