This late model Hunter Pilot 27 twin (Bilge) keel yacht is in very good condition & is a lovely boat to sail in all weathers, as it benefits from an internal helm with steering wheel. The Hunter performance & build quality combine to make the Pilot 27 a staggeringly fast yet very comfortable, 6 berth, Category B Offshore sea cruising boat. The twin keels benefit from substantial bulbs to give exceptional stability whilst the long waterline hull maximises speed and space. The single line mainsail reefs are operated from the safety of the cockpit adding to this great boats appeal giving great seakeeping and safety while still achieving a good turn of speed. This particular Hunter Pilot 27 has only had one owner who completed the finish himself & benefits from a number of practical improvements over the standard factory fit, as well as having been very well maintained and regularly updated. It is currently lying in Southampton.

Brokers Comments

The Hunter Pilot 27 is a superb family cruising yacht that still has the ability to provide an exciting sail and achieve a good turn of speed. This particular Twin Keel Pilot 27 has only had one very knowledgeable owner from new who completed the boat himself to an excellent standard & has in-fact made a number of improvements over the factory versions. It has a spacious forward cabin with its own bulkhead door & the whole saloon deckhouse area is light & airy, providing outstanding views of the word outside with the ability to helm from below when the weather is inclement. As well as having plenty of room for six adults, there is also masses of storage space in the form of lockers and shelves. The headroom, work surface and stowage are all exceptional for a boat of this size. The heads are placed by the companionway so wet oilskins do not need to travel through the saloon. The large berths in the forward cabin can be arranged as two single or one double. In addition, there is a large double berth in the aft cabin and the table in the saloon can also be dropped down allowing an infill to form another double berth.

The Hunter Pilot 27 was designed by David Thomas for British Hunter. Hunter resolutely refused to call these boats bilge-keelers, quite rightly and justifiably, so preferring the term 'twin fin' to emphasise the performance. The two keels are asymmetric, and angled, to provide lift when heeled.

With a good inventory & equipment list coupled with her efficient layout, this Hunter Pilot 27 offers everything you could need for fun family sailing in coastal waters & is presented in lovely condition. It is a great, year round cruiser that can accommodate all the family & is sure to provide a great deal of fun for everyone. She is currently lying in Southampton.
