The Hunter Ranger 245 is a compact family cruiser with a surprising amount of room below. The twin keel configuration makes it ideal for exploring the shallow waters of the East Coast and beyond, but they are still highly regarded sea boats for their size. Shearwater is a very smart example with new standing rigging, coppercoat, mainsail, stackpack, additional battery and more in 2016. Likely to be the best available - early viewing highly recommended!
