I heard that one finally found a home - brave soul. Hope his resto is coming along well.

Can't give any personal experience, but you might read this book about a family that cruised a Hardin 45 for 13 months from Canada to Mexico including a month at sea and a hurricane. At the end he goes into detail about his selection of the Hardin as the ideal boat for offshore cruising.

hardin 45 is a good boat--- if you are seeking that kind of solid, heavy cruiser. they wont point, so dont ask it to. the boat WILL perform as it was designed to perform. have fun and smooth sailing.

Thanks

Sorry, I know this is coming quite late, but for those who will read it is the archives. Read this before deciding: Hardin 45 Review : Bluewaterboats.org

MikeinLA I love the Hardins. Some friends from my dock had a 44 (45?) and it was a beauty! The VERY skilled owner re-did everything on the boat and they are currently enroute to Turkey where they plan to live aboard (wife's family is there). They publish an email/blog for their friends, as of last week they were in Panama. Everything's going great so far.

WanderingStar I love the look and feel of teak decks and lots of brightwork. But as top boat slave I'm glad my old ketch has glass on ply decks and no exterior brightwork.

deniseO30 As someone that constantly searches all the sail boat sales sites.. I can't keep from lingering on all the "leaky teaky" boat ads.
this one in Deale MD is breathtaking to just view online. I'd dare not go see it. although I could never afford a boat even near that price range.
