Cockwells plucked Hardy from the ashes last year and will have the first in a new generation of Hardys on display at this year’s Southampton Boat Show.
The boat is a timeless well-proven model, around 30 of which have been built over the past 18 years, but Cockwells hasn’t hesitated in ringing the changes, the most interesting of which is the hybrid propulsion system.
The hybrid installation is based around a single 440hp Yanmar diesel engine, rather than the usual twin set-up, with a 20kW electric motor linked to a 22kW generator and a 48V 400AH lithium-ion battery bank providing an additional source of clean, quiet power for the single shaft and propeller.
