Chelmer & Blackwater canal (Maldon) Essex UK|
"EMMA JANE", a very clean example of the popular Hunter Horizon 23. It comes together with a 1994 Volvo Penta 10 HP INBOARD engine! engine serviced (documents attached) every year since ownership. Self-tacking roller reefing jib means you only ever need to adjust the slab mainsail. Twin bilge keels allow the boat to sit comfortably on drying out river/inlet for comfortable living/stayover. Sleeping accommodation consists of 2 single berths in the main cabin, 1 double berth at the Aft and 2 berths for small children at the For. Kept ashore every winter at Blackwater Sailing Club. Currently winterized & wrapped up for the closed season but afloat in Chelmer & Blackwater canal (Maldon). Constantly updated since ownership to keep her at a very high standard. Lift out facility available at the canal for hull inspection if required. NON-smoking owners! Should you require this service I'm happy (UPON completion of SALE) to sail with you one way the 2 hours from Maldon to Bradwell Marina. Reluctantly, purchase of narrow boat forces sale.
