1997 Hardy Commodore 36

Gillingham, United Kingdom


Hardy Commodore 1997 Was £109,960 Now £99,950
The Hardy Commodore 36 has been a favourite of anyone with an eye for good lines on a proper sea-going boat since the design was first introduced in 1996. The Commodore 36 hull shape is quite traditional with a deep long keel that gives stability and protects the twin propellers and rudders when standing legs are used or when the boat is sitting against a wall. The side decks were designed for easy safe access for all ages and have a high stainless guard rail that extends from stem to stern and right round behind the aft cabin with access gates either side and at the stern for stepping onto the bathing platform.
