Hunter 25.5 ??

Hi,
I am a beginner. I am looking at a 1984 Hunter 25.5. Very clean, not used much the surveyor says. But I do not see many of them around and old messages talk of sailing difficulties? Should I get something easier to sail? Also the broker told me it is required to have survey. I will have one regardless but is this true?
Thanks,
Pam

The 25.5 is a reasonably nice little boat offering a nice balance of accomodations,and performance. This should be a reasonably easy and forgiving boat to sail and one that world be a good boat to develop skills on. While Hunters are not the most robust boats, a boat like the 25.5 should be fine for daysailing, weekending, PHRF club level racing, and coastal cruising.

I strongly recommend having a thorough survey done by a NAMS or SAMS certified marine surveyor. The broker is partially right, most loan and insurance companies require surveys on used boats. If you are buying in cash and self insuring then a survey is not required but is still a good idea.

Jeff
