The Hardy Commodore 36 has been in production now for well over two decades and it easy to see why this traditional design still appeals today. Her walkaround side decks removing the need for the ‘leap of faith’ when berthing. The sheltered seating of the bridge deck providing a comfortable are for entertaining while her flybridge lets the skipper get the wind in their hair on passage. Below decks the traditional finish suits her traditional appeal. Two two double cabins at either end of the boat with two separate heads ideally suited to couples cruising in comfort.

Hardy's 36 has many good points and a few shortcomings. Thankfully, the positive elements are outstanding, and the negative aspects are easily corrected…….
If you cruise with friends, sleeping cabins at opposite ends are a major improvement in privacy and the Hardy’s aft cabin is particularly good.
It is so much easier and quicker to move around a boat with twin saloon side doors. Saving a few extra seconds isn’t critical (this is a leisure activity, after all) but convenience and safety are greatly enhanced. For instance, positioning the side access near the side door and lower helm means that berthing the Hardy alone is a wholly realistic proposition great for those brief evening jaunts when all your crew are stuck in the office.
But the aspect we find so overwhelmingly appealing is the Hardy’s safety. So many things contribute: the bulwarks, wide side decks, guardrails at the correct height, and the easy side-boarding, for instance.
This is all helped by the superb visibility, highly accessible mooring facilities, and the easy passage up to the aft deck and flybridge. Of course, droning on about safety sounds dull compared with the more romantic side of boating. But struggling forward with a fender bigger than the side deck, attempting the 2ft leap from the pontoon onto a slippery bathing platform, or battling to pick up a mooring from an exposed, pitching foredeck is not the least bit romantic. Hardy owners understand that there are more idyllic ways to spend their time.
