A Hardy 42 Marine Survey and Sea Trial in Poole, Dorset. As a Marine Surveyor, these tough, well build British semi-displacement trawler type vessels are a joy to survey. Well built throughout, and with twin Caterpillar engines giving a smooth ride, this vessel powered through the short chop outside Poole Harbour without fuss.

Very comfortable internally, with high quality finish and a luxurious owners en suite cabin aft, this design would certainly be on my list if I were looking for a similar boat. In fact, the only reason this one was for sale at all is because the owner had bought another one, new – that is testament to the quality and design of these vessels, and made in Britain too!
