Marine Market advertising

Want to buy a boat or gear?

Visit our Marine Market page

Sell your boat or gear here

As well as Hardy Owners Club members, our Marine Market page is frequently visited by prospective Hardy boat owners, often resulting in very quick sales.

In fact, our record was a boat sold the day it was advertised on this website!

Advertise your boat or gear for one year for just £15.00 (HOC members) or £20.00 (non-members).

And at no extra cost your advert also appears in our club’s printed magazine the ‘Hardy Owner’, published three times a year and posted to all our members.
