RNLI TRAINING BOATS

SEMI-CUSTOM HARDY 42

SEMI-CUSTOM HARDY 42

In March 2007 Hardy Marine delivered the second of two semi-custom Hardy 42s to the RNLI. The two vessels are based at the RNLI Academy in Poole and are used for training crews in search pattern techniques.

Changes from the standard Hardy 42 include a higher coaming around the flybridge, adapting the saloon to become a floating classroom, and adding two twin cabins aft. The hull structure is unchanged from standard.
