Hardy's have a reputation for their ruggedness and this is rightly deserved in terms of their sea keeping ability, what is often overlooked is their high quality build and interior fit out. This particular model is first class (now a 18 year old boat.) Access to the accommodation from the aft cockpit is via bi-fold solid wood doors, the impressive helm position is on the port side with a comfortable and adjustable helm seat, you can also stand at the helm. The boat offers excellent accommodation with an enclosed wheelhouse and the benefit of an open rear cockpit area. The Hardy 27 is a sturdy, seaworthy motor cruiser built to a high standard. This example is fitted with economical twin Volvo 78hp diesel engines and is presented in really excellent condition.
