I am looking at purchasing a Hustler 35 - it is in poor condition and will need a comprehensive refit. My only reservation is on the interior layout. The saloon seating seems very short for a boat of this length. How have other owners found this? Has anyone changed the interior layout to give more seating in the saloon.
Finally - what sort of sailing performance can I expect from the boat - say upwind in a force 3-4 and downwind with kite in similar conditions.

Hello all. This was my late fathers Hustler the Barna Pearl. I was hoping someone might know where she is. My skipper last saw her in the Solent out of the water about ten years ago. Any help would be very welcome. Thank you

Hi Hustler owners. I am a prospective Hustler 30 owner and I am wondering how suitable the design was for cruising with kids ? Is the Hustler 30 TOO exiting to sail ?! too tender perhaps ? Also I am curious to know if anyone had undertaken long distance trips or ocean crossings in one and how the design copes with bad weather. I am not finding much online !

Many thanks !

Hi, my H30 mast foot seems to be corroding so I am thinking about renewing it as described on this page: http://www.hustler-owners.org.uk/technical-articles/exterior/ta001-h30-mast-foot-renewal/
Does any one know how to contact Philip ?
Is there a blueprint available of the mast foot ?
All tips are welcome...

Thank you for letting me join you! Red Baron was bought in 2011. She had a very, very extensive refit. We have just been told the heat exchanger was almost completely eroded. No anode had been fitted.
Does anyone know how many anodes should be on a 25.5 and where they should be fitted?

Does anyone know of an insurance company that doesn't require a survey for a hustler 30 thats afloat.
I don,t think that there is; but several people have said that there is but they don,t know the names of the companies?

Really interesting, thank you, I didn't know about the gas heater. Where abouts did you hide the Propex and the Eberspacher.
