The Hardy 40 DS is a derivative of the well renown Hardy 42 in a “Sedan” guise. Sturdy and rugged looks with well appointed accommodation and a range of over 450 miles make her an ideal long term cruising motoryacht.
“Attitude” was exhibited at the Southampton Boat Show to rave reviews about her striking styling and her abilities at sea. She is now available with low hours, a good specification and some manufacturers warranty. Well worth viewing!
