Insulated ferrocement long-distance sailboat Hartley Boat 43DS affordable for long stay.

We have lived in the boat 2 adults and 2 children, for a year – as it has everything you need in everyday life. The boat has a layout that gives a feeling of spaciousness, as well as room to retreat a little. The vessel is equipped with a kitchen/galley with fridge, hob, and oven, bathroom with shower. Two bedrooms at each end and two sofa groups/living areas are spacious and cozy. There is a small dishwasher in the kitchen and arrangements for a washing machine. The yacht is well insulated and keeps the temperature well even in cold seasons.

  • Please explain further “tire/parts of the tire must be replaced …” what part ofthe vessel does this refer to ?

    • the deck needs some patchwork at certain places. The best in my opinion, would be to remove the entire deck and lay fibreglass. But thats only because the maintenance of the teakdeck is very time consuming and «neverending».

      However, there are no parts that must be changed.
