Burnham-on-Crouch Essex UK
The Hunter Channel 32 is a comfortable cruiser, easily single-handed yet with good accommodation and performance, often considered a close successor to yachts like the Sadler 32 and Westerly Fulmar. Aerandir is a highly desirable factory built twin keel version, considered one of the best bilge keel yachts of her class, equally at home exploring shallow waters or on longer coastal and offshore passages. Although well maintained in the past, including new standing rigging in 2015, and having a good inventory including hot water, diesel heating and a self-tacking jib track, she is in need of cosmetic tlc and upgrading so has been priced very competitively to reflect this.

Although clearly in need of cosmetic attention, a 2017 insurance survey showed her to be in good sound condition and the points raised have been investigated and professionally addressed since.
