Andante – 26 foot Hunter Sailboat with trailer for SALE
We are parting with our 1995 Hunter sailboat and trailer after 15 years of amazing sailing. We have trailered her to different launch points all over Puget Sound, Canadian Gulf Islands, Desolation Sound, and mountain lakes. She’s been a great boat, in fact we’ve stayed on her as long as three weeks comfortably. When we’re not sailing her she is stored in a pole building out of the weather. Sails are in great shape with a furling jib and the mainsail has extra reinforcing at all stress points (provided by North Sails) and easily reefed for heavy weather sailing (believe me, we have been!). Sail covers to keep the sails out of the sun are included. The boat is designed to be extremely forgiving – if you find yourself in heavy wind with too much sail up, she will round to wind without danger of capsizing.
We’ve upgraded many of her features from the standard model. We’ve added stern seats, bimini and dodger, upped her tankage (20 gallons water and 12 gallons fuel) and installed an on demand pressurized water system in both galley and head. Private standup head and galley are very functional, especially for a boat this size. We added shore power last summer to make topping up the battery bank easy, and added 110v outlets on board.
Electronics include expanded electrical panel from standard, upgraded battery bank with two deep cell golf cart batteries, VHF radio, depth sounder, fish finder (includes bottom profile, water temp., and boat speed), Garmin GPS, mp3 compatible stereo with inside and outside speakers, and solar panel for recharging battery bank. Trailer has also been upgraded with all new LED lights and new brakes in 2015.
2000# water ballast tank, swing keel, and mast stepping system make this boat easy to trailer and set up ready to sail in 45 minutes. We just purchased a lightly used four stroke 9.9HP outboard motor with less than 150 hours (the original owner had an hour meter installed at the dealer). There are two props, one for slow speeds for trolling and a more aggressive prop that moves the boat nicely while stingy on fuel. The motor also has a charging system for keeping the battery bank fully charged. This makes cruising in the San Juans or Canadian Gulf Islands easy and comfortable.
We have her original owner’s manual.
