General Description


This Hardy Seawings 277 is a well designed & spacious family cruiser that has been extensively upgraded by her current Owners & in our opinion is presented in excellent condition. It features a well laid out cockpit with a full canopy and is fitted with a single Volvo AD41 (200 HP) diesel engine giving good performance with great economy. Down below, she boasts spacious, bright & comfortable accommodation with 4 berths, galley & separate heads. With an enclosable helm, and plenty of cockpit seating (new upholstery 2016), she is a great family boat. In the saloon, she has a convertible settee / dining area (re-upholstered 2016) that makes a large double bed & two separate single berths aft.

Brokers Comments

This Hardy Seawings 277 is a fantastic boat that is well designed & just ticks so many boxes for a vessel of her size. Her current Owners have spent a lot of money on her in the past 2 years including new upholstery throughout and she is now presented in lovely condition ready for her next adventure. With a canvass helm roof cover which, when removed, makes her feel like an open sports boat or with it closed a protected all weather cruiser. She could even be considered a forerunner to today’s modern hard top boats. Despite being only 8.4m, she packs a lot into a boat of this size. With her 4 berths, separate heads& comfortable saloon complete with diesel cabin heating, she offers plenty of space for all the family& feels a very safe boat to be aboard. At her helm she has a touch screen Chart Plotter & VHF as well as her engine instrumentation & her cockpit provides ample seating for all your guests. Hardy are known for their solid build quality & good sea keeping ability & this 277 seems to be no exception. With her 200 HP Volvo ADQ 41 Diesel Engine she is economical and ideal for cruising the UK coastline. This would be an ideal first time boat as she can easily be managed single handed & her current Owners have proved her capability by recently taking her across the Channel.

Whether you are new to motor boating or an experienced skipper, this Hardy Seawings 277 offers fantastic value for money with ample space for socialising & weekend cruising & numerous practicalities combined with all the advantages of a diesel engine. She is currently lying Southampton and is available for viewings
