The Hardy Commander 32 is the result of the great success and wide acceptance of the smaller Mariner. International designer Andrew Wolstenholme has produced an all-new, wide-beam, 32-foot sedan retaining all the classic Hardy characteristics. The hull has soft-riding forward sections combined with moderate-deadrise, high-lift aft sections and a full-length keel. This keel, combined with shallow tunnels, ensure that the stern gear is protected from grounding. The performance of the Commander 32 has proven to be outstanding, with the ability to cruise in excess of a 160 nm at 14 knots. The full-length keel ensures good directional stability at all speeds. On a fine day, at the press of a button, a full-width glass section in the wheelhouse roof opens, and together with the opening side windows and aft door creates a spacious airy atmosphere. On a cold, damp, windy day all windows and hatches can be closed and with hot air gushing from heating outlets, she remains both warm and comfortable. In fact, she can truly be described as a boat for all seasons. Her wide beam and generous proportions have also allowed Hardy Marine's craftsmen to create a boat with splendid accommodation.

Last Lady is in excellent condition and has been very well maintained being regularly serviced and laid up ashore each winter. Having decided that we were getting too old for sailing we purchased Last Lady in 2016, we have not been disappointed. We have cruised extensively round the coast of the UK and have always been impressed and reassured by the sea keeping qualities of the Andrew Wolstenholme design.
We are now getting a bit too old for extended coastal cruising so sadly we have decided to sell Last Lady and move to new adventures on inland waterways.
She will be a great, very capable, vessel for the new owner and is ready to go.
