Hardin 45 - USD 90,000


This beautifully restored Australian Registered Hardin 45 Cutter is in superb condition and fully equipped for live aboard and long range cruising in a delightful old style traditional sailing vessel.

In 2010 the original 50 foot wooden mast was replaced with a 55 foot aluminum spar and new shrouds and stays. In 2011 the vessel was fitted with a brand new Perkins M93B 85hp diesel engine and new ZF Transmission driving a new 3 blade self feathering MAX Propeller which powers the boat at a comfortable 7.5 knots at 1800prm using only 3.5 liters per hour.

New automatic bilge pumps and manual bilge pumps systems were installed.

Having recently been slipped (July 2013 ) for her scheduled annual maintenance, (new Anti Fouling and anodes) this vessel will provide the new owner with years of trouble free sailing.

First imported as the BOUNTY 44. Redesigned around 1980 and, afterward known as HARDIN 45. All of these boats were built at Bill Hardins yard at Kaohsiung, Taiwan. This yacht is hull number 115.
