Trailerability, comfort, quality and fun are the key components in the Hunter 23.5, a sailboat that does so much, so well. A water ballast system is central to the 23.5's ability to be easily trailered, and yet able to sail. Additionally, the swing centerboard brings her minimum draft to only 18 inches for almost limitless gunkholing. The unique raising system allows singlehanded rigging and reduced launch times. The 23.5 has a large cockpit with centerboard controls and running rigging led aft for shorthanded sailing comfort and safety. Below is a spacious cabin with two double berths, convertible settees, a functional galley, and portable head tucked under the forward berth. There is excellent sitting headroom, plus standing headroom when the seahood is raised. Additionally, a functional galley, dining table, private head, and generous sleeping berths maximize the comfort and pleasure in your sailing vacations. Also, the dining table is designed to fit in the cockpit, enhancing the best seating area - the great outdoors. Discover the fresh thinking and attention to detail in the 23.5. Easy to sail, easy to trailer, and fun to own. The Hunter 26 comes with the Cruise Pac as standard equipment. It isn't just sails, winches, and running rigging. It's an extensive list of things like portable toilet with privacy curtain, galley, anchor, fire extinguisher, running lights, life jackets - even a copy of Chapman's Piloting, Seamanship, and Small Boat Handling. And Hunter backs its boats with a five-year limited hull and bottom blister warranty.
