Boat Details

Two owners from new this Hunter Crusader (Fin Keel Version) of the Hunter Horizon 30 has been enjoyed by her owners for both cruising and club racing here on the Hamble River.

A combination of Hunter Build, David Thomas designed seaworthiness and the stability of a larger boat.

Moulded in 1994 by Hunter Boats and delivered to her previous owner.

  • GRP Hull, Deck and superstructure.
  • Lead keel for max stability and minimum maintenance.
  • Epoxied from new. 
  • High spec balanced spade rudder with finger light Tiller steering.

The Hunter 30 evolved from the popular but more spartan Hunter Impala, The 30 was
supplied as either a twin keeled cruiser or a fin keeler which was called the Crusader.

The majority of Fin keelers were cruised but a few were used successfully for club racing.

The Hunter 30 sits happily alongside the other David Thomas design of the time, the Sigma 29 and in between the Hunter 27 and Sigma 33.

All David Thomas designs give stiff, easily handled, responsive sailing. As he always said, 'You can make a fast boat sail slow, you can't make a slow boat sail fast'
The Hunter 30 Fin gives excellent cruising and rewarding sailing
