Fin keel Hunter Delta 25. We've owned this boat for five years and she's been a delight. Delta's are quite beamy and the designer, David Thomas, managed to fit a surprisingly roomy interior, with 3 good sized singles in the saloon and a smallish double in the forepeak. We've used her for holidays, sometimes two weeks at a time as well as simple days out and have had good race results with her too, winning several local series and regattas. She has a separate loo compartment with a recent Lavac sea toilet. All the cushions have been replaced and her linings are in good order. There's a clever 'slide out' chart table that's sized for leisure charts. There's a two ring hob and grill, with the gas bottle stored in a vented locker outside. The sink, flexible water tank, galley pump, plumbing, wiring, switch panel, LED lighting, USB sockets and saloon table have all been replaced in our ownership. There's a good amount of stowage.
This is a remarkably dry boat. In five years of ownership I've never had to as much as sponge the bilges out.
She has a nearly new Dart Sails furling genoa on a recent furlex furler. There's a recent crispy spinnaker and two older kites, one heavy flat blaster and an older lightweight. the Hyde Main's in good order.
The spars are in good order, with the cap shrouds being replaced two seasons ago. The spinnaker halyard was replaced last year, with a lot of new deckgear including some spinlock clutches and harken traveller controls.
She has a 6hp 2 stroke yamaha outboard with a high thrust prop. The engine works through a well in a cockpit locker. It's easy to lower it through the well, and stores in the locker when you're sailing. The engine charges the battery, as does a small solar panel that plugs into a cockpit socket. Under engine she makes 5.5 knots. There's a bulkhead compass and a cockpit mounted Lowrance plotter/ fishfinder.
She's being sold with all fenders, ropes, CQR anchor, chain and warp, boom cover, horseshoe buoy and most of the normal inventory, .
I'll throw in the four wheel yard trailer we use for winter storage. I've spent £800+ on two new tyres, new axles and replacement of most of the main spar but it does still need some welding.
She's out of the water until late March, early April so she can easily be viewed. There's no sign of osmosis and we found a previous advert that stated she's been epoxied, but I can't prove this. I'm currently prepping her for new antifoul that will be applied before she's launched.
