North Norfolk Business Awards 2019

Windboats Marine Ltd, owner and builder of Hardy Motor Yachts based in North Walsham, Norfolk, is pleased to announce that they have been short-listed in the North Norfolk Business Awards 2019 for the Young People & Skills category.

The awards night at Gresham’s School, Holt, on Thursday, February 21, will again be hosted by Chris Sargisson, Chief Executive of Norfolk Chamber of Commerce.

“The inaugural awards were very impressive, and based on the quality of the entries I’m sure the 2019 event will be even better,” said Mr Sargisson.

“I know it was a tough job whittling down the entries and drawing up these shortlists. I suspect the judges are going to find it even harder to select the winners.”

 

Merry Christmas!

The Team at Hardy would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2019.

Our yard and offices will close Friday 21st December and will reopen Wednesday 2nd January.

Yard News

It has been a busy few months in North Walsham, 2 new Hardy 32DS’s have been completed and handed over to their happy owners, we have started the next Hardy 42 and the NEW Hardy 52DS with optional flybridge!  With the recent new sales at the Southampton Boat Show and building the 2 Gunfleet 58 luxury sailing yachts plus a Trusty 28, the Windboats team has their work cut out for the next 12 months which is a great position to be in.

Here are some photos of progress to date on the Hardy builds:

     

Both Hardy 32DS’s were completed this summer and transported to Ipswich for launch and sea trials.

 

     

Our latest Hardy 42 was released from the mould and work is progressing on the deck and superstructure, our 30th hull of this popular model.

 

     

Likewise our NEW Hardy 52DS with optional flybridge was born! An exciting project and we can’t wait to see her as she progresses.

Successful Southampton!

 

 

Many thanks to everyone who came to visit us at the 50th Southampton Boat Show! The owners of the recently launched Hardy 32DS ‘Silver Gull’ very kindly allowed us to exhibit her at the show, and she did us proud!

We are pleased to say that 3 orders were secured at the show, 2 new Hardy 32’s and a Hardy 36! These will start going into production later this year and all be handed over throughout 2019.
