How do you go about buying a boat? More particularly, how do you go about buying a boat when you’d have struggled to tell one end from another just six months ago? The answer is research; hours and hours of reading, exchanging emails and phone calls, comparing the spec of different models, genning up on the characteristics of vessels from dozens of designers and boatbuilders. If you’re lucky, this will all lead you to a fine lady like Amneris – our small but perfectly formed first boat.
Amneris, named by her original owners, is a Hustler 25.5 cruiser racer with a bit of a history in her home county of Cornwall. She’s recognised by the locals around the marina because she’s been there for a while and had her fair share of glory in races thereabout.
