Broker's Comments

Back in the eighties Yachting Monthly had this to say...'The OOD concept of the Hunter Impala makes her an excellent all-rounder, and as a result of a healthy One-Design fleet she will not be obsolete in a couple of years’ time, making her resale value more or less assured'

Now raced very successfully under IRC this design is well sought after and this particular boat recently finished the Round the Island Race and has comprehensive sail wardrobe but also enough comfort for fast cruising
