The Hunter Duette, essentially a twin keel Hunter Sonata, offers a great balance of attractive lines, fun sailing performance and comfortable accommodation whilst offering a reduced draft for creek crawling or drying moorings. Spindrift is a highly unusual and desirable example having had a Yanmar 1GM10 diesel engine professionally installed in 2004 for improved practicality and reliability. She is presented in very good order.
