Owners Comments

The Hunter Channel 31 is a spacious fast cruiser with excellent performance under both power and sail. "Another Planet" has been comprehensively equipped and maintained by her Original Owners. There is a large cockpit, 6 foot headroom through most of the spacious saloon. She has proved a great cruiser with ample stowage above and below deck during our sailing over eleven seasons, cruising the East and South Coast UK including the Scilly Isles and in the Baltic, where she was over winter, inside a Hangar during the last five winters.
