HARDY 50 (now SOLD)

Lady Kimala

Lady Kimala was the first of Hardy 50’s and was delivered to her original owner in November 2004. Her second owner acquired her in 2011 and has continued to maintain her impeccably ever since (annual service history available). Reported by Mark Turley during MBY sea trials when launched as being ‘a rare example of a blue-water cruising vessel for motorboating enthusiasts’ and ‘finely fitted-out without forgetting the practical necessities of going afloat’ which gained her a 9/10 verdict in the report. Built to EURCD Category A and currently coded for MCA Commercial Operation if required. She has recently been lifted ashore at Buckler’s Hard on the Beaulieu River and offers an impressive specification.
