The Hunter Pilot 27 was designed by David Thomas for British Hunter. Although both fin-keel and twin keel versions of both were built, the twin-keel versions were more popular.
Hunter resolutely refused to call these boats bilge-keelers, preferring the term 'twin fin' to emphasis the performance. The two keels are asymmetric, and angled, to provide lift when heeled. In practice, there is little performance difference in most conditions between fin and bilge-keeled British Hunters.
The Hunter Pilot 27 was built from 1996 to 2005, with around 100 in total produced. The hull design appears to be the same as the Hunter Channel 27, a cruiser without deckhouse, produced from 1999 onwards.
British Hunter have always offered their boats both as complete boats and in kit form, though as all structural work was always done in the factory there are rarely major differences between factory-completed and kit boats. This boat has been well looked after, and maintained to a good standard. She is a very big little boat. with accommodation that out does other similar size yachts.
