Re: Hartley Tihitian 48 kecth

Since this isn't a standard production yacht and could be home made ferro the measurements could be anything depending on the mast fitted. The only safe way to know would be to measure the yacht. Note, you shouldn't measure the old sails because they will have stretched.

Re: Hartley Tihitian 48 kecth


I believe ol' Hartley may still be in business. The sail dimensions may be available through his outfit. He has a book out on Ferro, seems to know something about them and used to produce ferro boats, including the Tahitian. His construction ideas made sense as did his maintenance info.

It was awhile ago but try an internet search and see what comes up. Don't expect too much info from the site. He was very cagey with the info as, of course, he wanted to sell his book.

By my reckoning if yours is a Hartley produced boat it was well of the good ones.

Best of luck and happy sailing!
