A compact family cruiser, the Hunter Horizon 232 offers a comfortable interior with very good sailing ability, and particularly easy handling, with a fractional rig with self-tacking jib. The Horizon 232 packs an amazing amount of space into a small and hence cheap to moor hull. Both twin keel and fin keel versions were built - Hunters calling the twin keel versions 'twin fin' rather than 'bilge keel' to emphasise their performance. This twin fin version is the last but one of these to be built and is on a quality 4-wheel road trailer.

Designed by David Thomas, the Hunter Horizon 232 was a very slightly modified form of the popular Hunter Horizon 23, the change in name being more of a marketing device than an alteration to design of the actual boat. The Horizon 23 and 232 were a development of the Hunter Duette, itself a derivative of the well known Sonata 'quarter tonner' one-design club racer from 1975.

With a ballast ratio of over 50% in twin canted aerofoil keels, and an efficient and easily handled three-quarter rig, both fin and twin keel versions sail well, without being overly demanding on their crew. Over 200 Hunter 23s and 232s were built from 1989 to 1998, most being twin keeled. This 1996 version is understood to be the last but one boat built.

The accommodation starts with a raised bunk platform in the bows, which although almost 6' long is very narrow at the bow end, and is probably best thought of as either a childrens berth or stowage space. Aft of this, in the midships part of the saloon, are two settee berths, each 7 feet long, with the saloon table between, and a fold-down chart table by the port berth.

Aft is the heads compartment and galley, and finally behind the galley is a 6' 8" by 4' 6" (at the wider end) double quarterberth. Headroom is 5' 8" maximum by the galley, with about 5' 6" in the heads compartment and 5' 4" forward in the saloon.

* British Hunter are nothing to do with the American-built Hunter range - and there is an American Hunter 23 model, which is a much lighter built design.
