Having been originally introduced to Hardy Marine to design their trendsetting Seawings hardtop sportscruiser range, Wolstenholme designs now make up all of the current Hardy range comprising the 26, 32, 36, 36DS, 40DS, 42, 50, and the flagship 65. The first 65 (then called the 62) was launched to critical acclaim in September 2013, and the 40DS – the first model produced under the Windboats Hardy Marine name – was premiered at the 2014 London International Boat Show. In 2020 Windboats Hardy Marine ceased trading but the Hardy brand and tooling was bought by Cockwells who will be re-launching the range in 2021. See Gallery 1 and Gallery 2.
These rugged craft have built an enviable reputation for their fine seakeeping characteristics, and Hardys were proud to have been awarded the contract to supply two 42s for RNLI crew training. See the RNLI Training Boats page.
