She is a lovely example of this popular and safe cruiser and benefits from a good-sized interior. Full standing headroom, useful living space and separate heads compartment make this model an excellent family boat. Regarded as a modern high performance family yacht of a modern design with cutaway bulbous keel, fine lines and modern skeg arrangement. She has undergone many improvements and upgrades over the years and is presented well. Lying Conwy Marina, North Wales.

4 berths in 2 Cabins

The Hurley 24/70 successfully introduced a more practical and comfortable living space for owners to take their families out cruising for longer periods. In her day, with her wide saloon, moulded furniture, nearly six foot headroom, separate heads compartment and spacious working galley, she was considered contemporary, even luxurious. 

The owner has had the interior cushions upgraded to foam with the wood work painted and new interior lights fitted to modernise and freshen her up.
