A fast and strong yacht, ideally suited to charter. As some testament to the strength of the hull, she is rated to EC cat A offshore for storm force 10 and seven-metre seas with a claimed stability rating of 1.27.

From it’s elegant and fine finished exterior to below decks where there is an air of quality, the Harmony 42 is an ideal charter boat.

Down below is practical, bright and airy with a feeling of space.  Headroom is a generous 190cm and with a maximum beam of nearly four metres. To starboard is a well sized wet locker. Forward of this is a comfortable navigation station where there is ample room for charts and books.  The station is fitted with a VHF radio, GPS and repeaters for the cockpit instruments.  The dining area has seating for eight. The table itself has a storage bin in the centre with a lid that reverses for placing hot serving pots and also is used to convert into a double bed.  The galley features a 200lt fridge, generous preparation areas with fiddles, a double sink/drainer, a bin and a two-burner gas stove.  There are twin heads, one in the main saloon and the other in the forward cabin.  Eberspacher hot air heating keeps the cabins cosy.

Above deck is equally tidy and practical. Everything is neatly laid out and allows easy access around the boat. The cockpit has room for eight to 10 on wide teak covered seats. A fibreglass binnacle houses log, speed, depth, wind instruments, autohelm (unfortunately this is currently out of action) and chart plotter. A fibreglass cockpit table extends to be large enough for lunch but folds neatly out of the way for sailing.  Transom includes a vented gas locker with room for two bottles.

Wide, non-slip decks allow easy access forward with neatly designed aluminium toerails, well engineered stainless steel stanchions and twin wires.  The bow has a huge anchor locker with a foot operated windlass.

An 8/10 rig.  Mast with double sweptback spreaders angled at 20 degrees. Fully battened main with lazy jacks and bag. Two reefing points are fitted with leads back to the cockpit. Furling headsail is standard.

Skippers must hold a minimum of RYA Coastal practical or equivalent expericence when sailing within the Clyde. Outwith the Clyde – Yachtmaster practical qualification is required.


8 berths in 3 cabins plus main saloon.


The engine is a 55hp Volvo D255D with good sound insulation, although once you have experienced the boat sailing you will be reluctant to use!
