Hound Dog (GBR9537) is a very well-maintained boat which has been under the current owners for 9 years. Hound Dog is a 1980 boat with a fully prepared hull and keel and a new Mark 2 rudder fitted in 2021.
The Impala 28 is designed by David Thomas in 1977, built by Hunter Boats and selected that year by the Offshore One-Design Conference as one of their three Offshore One-Designs, the Hunter Impala OOD one of the finest and most successful small cruiser-racers of all time and still an eligible IRC one-design. Impala Nationals are a highlight of the year and great fun when racing within your own fleet. You learn a lot!!!
