Prospero was the first of the Hardy 36 deck saloon/sedan models launched in the Spring of 2012. The model was designed specifically for the owners who wished for the same proven sea-keeping hull of the H36 but offering a larger saloon and cockpit for same-level living/entertaining space without the need for a flybridge. Easily handled by 2 people, they have extensively cruised Northern Europe and now base the boat in Guernsey but she can be viewed by arrangement on the south coast UK
