We are delighted to welcome Cathy and Richard Brown as Hardy owners.

Pictured here aboard their Hardy 40DS ATTITUDE, retired journalists Cathy and Richard are a highly experienced yachting couple who also own a 41ft sailing yacht that they cruise and race successfully from their base here on the east coast. For ATTITUDE they have plans for extensive cruising, both offshore and on inland waterways throughout Europe. The 40DS has the same semi-displacement hull design as the highly respected Hardy 42, giving outstanding sea-keeping for safe, comfortable passage making. Her lowering mast has been modified to minimise her air draft and her protected propeller suits her well to canal use.

Cathy, who used to edit the Cruising Association magazine, said: “We are really excited about starting a new chapter in our life afloat, and look forward to reporting on our adventures in this beautifully designed and built and brilliantly equipped boat.”

We wish them many happy times and successful cruises aboard ATTITUDE.
