Wanted: HR29

Postby Carts » Tue May 23, 2017 12:47 pm

Hi all,

My first post here, I recently viewed a HR29 in the UK and unfortunately went under offer before I had a chance.

My wife and I are looking for our first cruiser and the HR29 seemed to tick all our boxes.

Ideally I would like to purchase one in the UK, I have checked every possible website and unfortunately the only 2 listed (both Hamble) are sold.

Is anyone aware of a HR29 for sale in the UK, private or through a broker?

Many thanks in advance.
Simon

Hi Simon
The HR 29 is a good choice for at small, strong family cruiser. I have had mine for three years cruising in Scandinavian waters and find the boat very suitable.
I do not have information about any 29 for sale in the UK but I know of several for sale in Scandinavia at very decent prizes. It might be an idea to check out this market and consider having the yacht transported to the UK by truck.
Happy yacht hunting!

Hi Simon,

And welcome on the forum!

I can agree with John that HR29 is a rather 'popular' boat in Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Netherlands etc. so widening the market area gives you more options. For example, when I was looking for HR29 seven years ago, there wasn't any on sale in Finland at that time, but I found many boats on sale in Denmark instead. I had four options which to choose from and which I could check during the one trip and ended up buying one of these boats.

I found the Scanboat's website (https://www.scanboat.com/en) very useful for checking out the boats on these markets, but of course there are many other useful websites as well.

Let me know, if you need some old test articles (on pdf) or some other information.

Good luck with your search!

Hi,

There are two HR29's on finn.no (the Norwegian version of gumtree) at the moment.
