Hunter - Horizon 23

A compact Bilge Keel family cruiser, the Hunter Horizon 23 offers a comfortable interior with very good sailing ability and particularly easy handling, with a fractional rig and self-tacking jib.
The Horizon 23 packs an amazing amount of space into a small and hence cheap to moor hull.
