The Huffler has good sailing performance, is a joy
to handle under power and the sort of boat
where a bow thruster really is an optional extra.
Introduced in 1992, shallow draft version is at
home inland but also will take heavy weather.
The deeper keel sailing version is Category A, still
suitable for inland passages through most of Europe
but not, in the case of the deeper keel version,
the smaller wide beam waterways of the UK.
Masses of room for long term live aboard cruising
with a variety of interior plans (chose your own as
long as it is feasible). The standard 35' & 40' feature
two double cabins fore and aft with own heads
containing separate showers meaning two couples
can enjoy the boat with privacy.
