    Owners Comments

    Turn-key' racing ready proven winner, Running Wild IRL 9538. Hunter Impala 28 with 9HP Yanmar diesel inboard engine, excellent wardrobe of racing and cruising sails, 6 berths. Guarenteed IRC winner with impecable racing record and full IRC optimisation of .883 making "Running Wild" the fastest and most successful Cruiser 3 on the East Coast of Ireland. She is dry sailed and in 2016 had a full racing overhaul including full replacement of all resin and gelcoat under the waterline and finshed with maintainance free Copper Coat racing finish. Notable improvements include centre lift for drysailing, flush hull fittings and a very fast and well rated flat top mainsail and non overlapping Jib set up. The boat also benefits from a fully road legal new galvanised double axel road trailer. Ideally suited to fun cruiser / racer with option of weekend family fun.
