Below decks is surprisingly spacious when you consider her 8-meter length. What helps massively is her generous 6-foot headroom and equally generous 9-foot beam. This allows for a decent sized galley and chart table to exist on opposite sides of the boat.
The yacht is classed as having 6-berths. Ideally, the boat is more suited to 4 and makes an ideal couples boat or for those with a young family. The aft cabin has a double berth with bi-folding privacy door and cubby storage. Outside the aft cabin is the galley with gas fuelled, Plastimo Atlantic oven with 2-burner hob and grill. Stainless steel sink with hand pumped fresh water and top loading cool box.
Opposite the galley is the aforementioned chart table. The "seat" is at the end of the portside settee. Here you will find chart storage, chart reading light, 12V switch panel, GPS/plotter, clock & barometer set, and the VHF. Aft of the chart table is the heads compartment with moulded sink unit, wet locker and Jabsco marine toilet.
There is a central drop leaved table with fiddles. Comfortable, well-upholstered settees/berth with storage behind and below. There is a clever double berth arrangement in the bow which extends by flipping the backrest of the forward saloon settee up into place. Excellent storage area beneath the forward berth.
The interior headlining, hull coverings and fabrics are in excellent condition. There is an opening deck hatch for ventilation and there are 12V deckhead and reading lights.
The Hunter Horizon 27TK was launched in 1989 to replace the popular Horizon 26. In 1990 the boat was renamed the 272 and later became the 273. By all intents and purposes they are all one and the same. She is a David Thomas design. David had been involved with Hunter since 1975 who brought us the very successful Sonata, Impala and Medina designs.
In an effort to bring more cruiser orientated yachts to the market the Horizon range was introduced. The boat itself is fairly fast around the cans and will appeal to the cruiser who likes a turn of speed. The boat is in super condition and is in a sail away condition.
The hull was soda blasted back to her original gel, primed and then antifouled in April 2022 ready for launch. She has twin bilge keels, counter hung rudder and tiller steering. White, original gel coat topsides with new navy blue cove line decals.
GRP deck and coachroof moulding in white with moulded non-slip.
Large self-bailing cockpit with angled backrests for comfort.
Cockpit locker to port and a stern locker with removable lid and gas bottle storage. This locker drains and vents overboard.
Anchor locker with lid and strong point. Stainless steel stemhead fitting with a roller.
Bow and stern rails in polished stainless, connected by stanchions and guard wires.
The bathing ladder is at the transom. Tiller in varnished wood.
- Hull stripped, primed and antifouled 2022
