Built 2010 by Hartley Boats to the new Ian Proctor/Phil Morrison design

Price includes launching trolley, new Mersea combi 250 roadbase and 2.5 HP Suzuki outboard. (For detailed kit list see below)


Described by Sky-International as “the best 14 ft sailing dinghy money can buy”, the revised Hartley Wanderer first went on sale in 2008. It received rave reviews and continues to do so to this day for its stability, its versatility, its spaciousness, and its sailing (and righting!) qualities. Although technically this is the more expensive “racing” version, it can equally serve as a easily manageable cruiser or training boat with slab reefing of the main and roller reefing of the jib.

I have a copy of the original review in Yachts and Yachting, as well as the original brochure) which I can scan and send to anyone interested. The Hartley website tells the story of the development of the revised version very well. Take a look here.

This boat is overall in great condition having been used very little since new. The original plastic self-bailers have just been replaced with Hartley’s latest laminated version. The current owner (the second) unfortunately has to sell for health reasons. The boat is located on the south coast of Cornwall near St Mawes. Can deliver foc within the South West.
