  • Full Details

Priced to sell!




An excellent example of a Hardy Commander 32, with Twin Yanmar 6LPAM-DTP 250hp engines and 470 hours recorded.  A superb design and benefiting with drying out legs, with a hull taking very easily to the ground.

 ‘Tara’ has cruised between Weymouth and Chichester, mainly in the Solent, but with occasional trips to the French coast and Channel Isles.

 Her very experienced owners have owned her from new and have found her to be an excellent sea boat, well built and with practical and comfortable accommodation.
