Boat identification

Hi there, just wondering if anyone has any info or could point me in the right direction as to what sort of boat this is ? I've been told it's a 45ft fibre glass Hartley.
Cheers

Welcome to CF Smee !
(awesome screen name btw)

Can't get a great look at the angle, but if you know the hailing port, you could check documentation...

Others here will likely know or at the very least have some clue...

Re: Boat identification

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, Smee.

Doesn’t look much like any Hartley with which I’m familiar.
Compare here ➥ http://www.hartley-boats.com/sailboats.htm
Perhaps a Cape Bay 45?

Re: Boat identification

Gordo on the job alert!

I didn't think so either with the PH...

Re: Boat identification

On inspection the outside looks cement but inside under hatches it's fiberglass is that normal?

Re: Boat identification

Hatches will certainly be glass or wood...

Or do you mean inside the hull under the hatches??? I've not seen many ferro boats in my life, But I do recall one or two having a "glass roving texture" to the inside... It must just be a pattern pressing??? I guess you could glass the inside of a ferro, but seems silly... Really ... No idea bud... google or wait here!

Is this your first boat???

If I were your friend I would try and talk you into something a little more common, popular, traditional, or less risk for bank account draining...

Re: Boat identification

Yes it's my first sail boat, I've had a few power boats. I've sighted the Australian ships register which states built in 85, first registered in 97 does not state who built it but material is grp which to my understanding is Fiberglass, I have not talked to the surveyor personally as yet but his in water survey (pending slipping which won't happen till January) says it's a Fiberglass method that is rather strong. Yet when I tap the outside of the hull and to look at it, it's not perfectly smooth I call cement, but I'm a mechanic, if I need to tell what stuff is made of I hit it with a hammer and I don't think old mate would like me taking to the hull with my ball pein hammer. I'm pretty sure it's a 45 ft Hartley Fijian but is it possible to get it wrong on a national ships register ?

Re: Boat identification

If it's a one off, non molded fiberglass it may not be smooth.

Welcome to CF!

I think you're the first person I've 'met' that has bought a boat without even being sure what material the hull is made from

Hard to tell from a few pics, but could be ferrocement - no way to be sure. But there's been a survey, so make, model and material should not be a mystery

Other then that .. I wholeheartedly agree with HappyMdRSailor - if I was your friend, I'd try to talk you into buying another boat too

Sorry if that sounds unfriendly, not my intention, and if you've already committed then congrats on your first sailingboat!

What are your plans? Live aboard, go cruising, ...?

Re: Boat identification

Looks like a Hartley Fijian hull and cockpit. Topsides often vary a lot depending on the 1st owners tastes.

Re: Boat identification

I haven't bought it yet Lizzy still making a nuisance of myself ha ha and won't by it till I'm sure. I plan on using it for weekenders and as an apartment in the city as we live on the outskirts of town , and gradually get more adventurous with the sailing side. Wasn't sure about the high sides being a changeable thing during the build but it give a good amount of head room which is a big plus.

High freeboard = headroom=yes

Also = high windage=moving and rolling on mooring=much higher anchor loads=much tougher to maneuver narrow passes to dock/slip/piling/rock/shoal=heavier boat=less performance=less stability+lots more...

Good apartment boat though...

All boats have compromises... LOTS of em... This could be a good fit for you IF you realize the compromises...
