Yes Joanna. Had the boat for more than 10 years now. Very pleased.
No major issues.
Good luck with prospective purchase.
Tony

Hi Joanna.
We use ours in the Thames/Medway and have also been up the east coast to Harwich Stour and Orwell and beyond into the Deben.
Largely a very comfortable boat but in a short sea i.e coming back down the east coast across Harwich, brightlingsea and the Crouche estuaries we did get waves across the bow/wheelhouse.
As ex "yotties" we use the tides and stick to around 8/10 knots.
About 2 gallons an hour would be my guess from the Yanmar 4LHSE.
All the best, Tony.

We currently have a Hardy 20 SE and would eventually like to buy a Hardy mariner 25 - can any one tell me what the fuel consumption is like on the
Yanmah.
Also wonder how the mariner feels compared to a 20 in the sea.
We live in Dorset and spend a lot of time in Lymington and have admired a beautiful 25 ‘Seabird’ moored near the Harbourmasters pontoon.
