1998 Hunter Legend 340

West Mersea, United Kingdom

£38,000

A good example of the Hunter Legend 340. Spacious and comfortable family cruisers, with plenty of headroom and a light and airy interior with many design innovations to make life on board comfortable and safe. All sail handling control lines are led back to the cockpit making it an easy and safe boat to sail short handed or with a family, and her shoal draft wing keel makes her ideal for exploring the shallow waters of the East Coast and beyond. Three owners from new. Well worth inspection.
