The Husky Hustler is a twin keel motorsailer with shallow draft and good cruising speed well suited to our local waters. Surprisingly spacious accommodation with aft cabin, deep, safe cockpit and solid build. Having had a professional epoxy treatment, engine rebuild, new standing rigging and Plastimo furling system in 2017 along with a recent interior refit and new windows she is in good condition for her age and well worth consideration.
