A good secondhand boat will range from R20 000 to R60 000 and a new boat in excess of R100 000. There seems to be no visible difference in the speeds of the Hunter 19, The Hunter Europa, and the Hunter 2000 (Fast 19). A new set of sails costs in the region of R17 000. If you’re buying a boat for as little as R20 000, you need to spend a further R25 000 if you want to compete at a top level. Spending R25 000 to join in at a national event will ensure your competitiveness and enjoyable fleet racing.
