Broker's Comments

Boatshed Plymouth are very pleased to have this Hardy Seawings 355 on its listings.

Designed by Andrew Wolstenholme, she was one of the first hard top sports cruisers when launched in 1997 and was one of a four model range. Built by Hardy Marine, she combines Hardy build quality with high speed cruising and practical accommodation. Good all weather ability is achieved thanks to her hard top layout and deep hull profile.

When you step onboard you can see why the RNLI choose Hardy Marine to make their training vessels. From the raised helm position there is a feeling of confidence in all seas. The twin Volvo diesels give a top speed of over 30 knots.

But this boat has luxury too with a good sized main saloon that is good for standing even if you are over 6ft tall. The current owners have used her for south coast cruising and along the coastal French waterways, staying onboard for extended periods of time.

Lots of servicing and updating keep her in top condition and she is well worth a look.

These boat details are subject to contract.
