Broker's Comments

Aquarius is a 1985 factory finished example of the Hunter 26 which has continued to receive upgrades and correct maintenance throughout her life.This is a boat we know quite well. We brokered her to her current owner just over 9 years ago. She was a clean, tidy and very well found boat at that time. Her current owner has carried on in that theme and she is every bit as good today as she was then, indeed in some areas even better !! Aquarius regularly cruises the Pembrokeshire coast, anchoring overnight in the many bays and coves. She also cruises to Ireland and across the Bristol Channel most years.
She is such an honest and capable little boat, presented in close to original condition, none of the dreaded 'owner improvements' on this lovely example.
She is ashore in our yard as per the pictures and available to view 6 days a week, we are closed on Sundays.
These boat details are subject to contract.
