I am looking at a 27', 1977 Hunter
sailboat. I would do bay sailing, and maybe, in time, as I hopefully become a better sailor, take her down the inland waterway a bit. And, maybe, if I become a very good sailor, take her out in the ocean.....(BIG maybe!)
It has been maintained in very good condition. I will get this boat surveyed, if I decide to buy it, but, I would like to know if anyone has experience with this make/model/year, and if you can tell me anything I should be aware of that may cause a problem or mucho money
to fix or maintain. I have been told it has a 3' 3" fixed keel
. It has head
room of 6' in the cabin
inboard, a sink in the head
, and a sink in the galley
, decent sails
, roller furling
, etc. They are asking $5,000.
Not having experience with used boats, or new, for that matter, as far as buying
goes, does this sound reasonable for a boat this old? And, is there anything I should be aware of? Thanks! All responses appreciated!
