Hardy boats have a magnificent reputation for Very sturdy single skin GRP construction vessels such as the Hardy 20 Family Pilot. That sets Hardy boats apart form many others. and there are many still around today and will be for years hence if looked after. This particular Hardy has a beautiful lustre to her hull. The side decks are relatively wide and sunken so you feel safe as you move around the vessel. The anchor locker is of ample size too for those of you that like to do some night fishing.

What a tardis -Good sized cabin with basic yet functional amenities. Wide windows giving a light and airy feel. Deep secure cockpit with ample seating. The original Hardy Brochure marketed these as 4 berths - the fourth berth could be created by a square table in the cockpit that doubled as a base between the aft cockpit seats! A fishermans delight yet a family pleaser too.

Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
What amazing boats these are. The Hardy 20 Family Pilot was a most successful model and Hardy marketed them as capable and sea worthy craft, offering 'Big Boat' accommodation and performance - Yet can be trailed by a large family car! This one has a really nice looking hull, a new canopy and is available with or without a trailer. They are friendly yet serious boats that appeal to newcomers because of their good reputation and old timers again - because of their ease of handling, sturdy build and excellent reputation. These boats hold their value well if looked after too. They appeal to husband and wife, young and old. They are fantastic all rounders.
