A great opportunity to buy a very lightly used and carefully maintained Hardy 40DS demonstration yacht. One of Hardy’s latest designs, she has the same hull design as the Hardy 42, with its exceptional sea-keeping characteristics. This suits her perfectly to offshore use, and her well protected single prop makes her equally suited to inland use.

Asking Price, VAT paid £385,000

N.B this yacht can be purchased exc VAT and comes with full warranty. The replacement cost would be £530,395
