The Hunter Pilot 27 was designed by David Thomas for British Hunter. Although both fin-keel and twin keel versions of both were built, the twin-keel versions were more popular.
Hunter resolutely refused to call these boats bilge-keelers, preferring the term 'twin fin' to emphasise the performance. The two keels are asymmetric, and angled, to provide lift when heeled. In practice, there is little performance difference in most conditions between fin and bilge-keeled British Hunters.
The Hunter Pilot 27 was built from 1996 to 2005, with around 100 in total produced.
