H.A.R.D. Yachts vision            

We believe 21st Century yacht owners want their yachts to take full advantage of design, construction and practical usage historically learned over centuries of hard won knowledge of ships at sea. We learned from early Arctic exploration about construction methods that make ships stronger and safer in ice. We also believe that strength and safety considerations learned in extreme conditions are important when cruising in more tropical settings.  Come join us in our quest to build the strongest yachts possible using modern construction technology.

H.A.R.D. Yachts adventure

 We build very strong, rugged, durable, stable yachts that can travel the oceans of the world in style and enter the most shallow ports with its 6 foot draft, with our very unique “beachable” hull design. Whether you plan on navigating the Amazon or braving the Arctic, or anywhere in between, H.A.R.D. Yachts will keep you safe.

H.A.R.D. Yachts are Inclusive rather than Exclusive

Our founders have history building wheel chair accessible yachts with lifts and elevators in key locations to offer maximum mobility.  We avoid step ledges for the interior at every opportunity. Our latest design can move a wheel chair from the dock to the deck with neutral angle ramps. Our internal elevator can travel three decks and offer multiple stateroom choices.  Now everyone in the family can go to sea together.
