About this G L Watson Motor Yacht former MFV

DAWN HUNTER is a remarkable vessel - robustly built to a GL Watson design – the maintenance regime she has enjoyed during her last 2 ownerships has left little to chance. The potential options for usage of this vessel are seriously exciting - a motor sailer with enough sail area to be an effective sailing boat is a rare thing. Her deck space is extensive and incredibly well protected; her interior finish and fit out is to a standard one would simply not expect on this style of vessel and with 3 double cabins and 11 berths in all DAWN HUNTER is an impressive motor yacht that could go almost anywhere. This is a vessel you feel you could spend a lot of time on with very few sacrifices.
