Pros:
Cons:

Very seaworthy small cruiser thanks to 60% ballast ratio, good lines and strong construction. Available with 4 berth accomodation which is ideal for single handed off shore sailing, comfortable for two people, OK for two adults and two young children.
Lack of headroom below but accomodation can be good if vessel professionally built for compactness. Inboard diesel option engine (Yanmar 9hp) excellent. A lot of weather helm but reasonable performance. Very re-assuring in heavy weather. Super little ship.

Pros:
Cons:

Nice looking little boat. Quite heavy, 1840 kg. with 1040 kgs of ironballast in the semi-long keel. Very strong build, and feels bigger than it actually is.
I sailed mine from Denmark to Gibraltar, via the Bay of Biscay, all without an engine and without any problems.
Did the trip from Gib. to Denmark via the spanish coast and the european waterways
with an 8 hp. Suzuki outboard mounted in the weld, aft of the cockpit. This system is ingenious and it worked well under all conditions (25oo km. of motoring in all...).
The Hurley is a simple construction that works well for low budget cruising. At least one has completed a circumnavigation. The design is very traditional, which also means a little slow compared to modern designs.
Designed by Ian Anderson and tested by Lloyds.

Pros:
Cons:

Nice ship, strong buildt. Our's has
an 4-stroke 8hp outboard motor mounted in a well aft of the cockpit. This makes running by engine very pleasant as the sound level is very low, almost as an inboard motor.
There's an owners assosiation at:

The boat seems to be buildt by high standards, our's in very fine condition even after more than 25 years!
