Brokers Comments

This stunning Hardy Mariner 25 is presented in excellent condition and has clearly been well maintained and looked after by her current Owners. More aptly described as a ”Little Ship” these Mariners really area a go anywhere 4x4 of the sea. With three comfortable berths and a light and spacious saloon that features 6’2” headroom there is so much packed into this space. A functional galley and separate heads further add to the cabin appeal. In addition, it has a separate enclosed wheelhouse with Helm & Navigator Seats with access to all the electronics and controls as well as a good size sliding sunroof to bring the outside in on warm days. Then it is out through its teak Bi-Fold patio doors to the surprisingly spacious cockpit with a lovely bench seat across the transom and removable cockpit table. This whole area is covered by a canvass enclosure that has been extended to allow for full seating and use even when erected. Of course on a warm day, this can be taken down giving a lovely open cockpit to dine in or be used as a great platform for fishing, should you be so inclined. Powered by a single Yanmar 4LH 170 HP diesel engine this great boat will cruise at approx. 14 knts and has a top speed of approx. 18. The engine has only completed approx. 890 hours and has recently undergone an overhaul which has included new engine mounts, new exhaust bellows and a full service. Creature comforts include hot & cold water, Colour Chart Plotter and an electric anchor windlass making life comfortable and easy. This boat really is a cracking little cruiser that feels safe in turbulent seas while equally at home speeding along in calmer waters. If you are looking for an all-round cruiser or a transition from a sailing boat to a motor cruiser, then this Hardy Mariner 25 is an absolute must for viewing.


She is currently lying Southampton & is available for viewings through Aspire Boat Sales.
