We will not be exhibiting a Hardy at the Show this year, we had planned to premiere the new Hardy 65 but we don’t want to rush finishing this fabulous custom yacht, so she will be launched in October. Watch our website for news of this.
Nonetheless, we will be exhibiting two other boats from the Windboats Group stable, the Gunfleet 58 ocean cruising yacht on marina berth M260, and a Trusty 28 on berth M128. During the show our MD Oliver James, Sally Coleman and Robin Campbell will be based on the Gunfleet, where we would be delighted to meet you and to update you on the Hardy range.
The first of the new Hardy 65s will be launched later this year. Based on the original Hardy 62 design, she retains all of the rugged, sea-going features for which Hardys are so justly renowned, but her styling and finish, both internal and external, have been lifted to a totally new level.
The second of our ‘new style’ Hardy 32DS ‘Henry’ has just left our commissioning base in Ipswich bound for his new home on the West Coast of Scotland.
Along similar styling as the first re-badged Hardy 32 DS, she has totally new interior and is beautifully executed in American white oak. “Henry” is powered by twin Yanmar 240hp engines and can expect speeds of 22-25 knots. Being a semi-displacement hull he has the beauty of running at lower speeds as well as high cruising speeds, therefore increasing fuel economy.
‘Henry’ is built in a traditional dark blue, with canopy covers to match and has an alternative layout with a V berth in a larger forward cabin, an upper and lower berthed guest cabin, a large heads with walk-in shower, and the galley aft of the helm position.
