This new generation of rotor-moulded boat has been designed by Phil Morrison not only to last the rigours of time but to be the most outstanding 12ft (3.65m) dinghy ever designed, with unique sailing benefits and qualities to become in time a world leader. 

This was no small challenge but became even worse when Hartley Boats presented the list of requirements and benefit list they wanted to be incorporated into his design.

The remit was, build the most STABLE 12ft (3.65m) dinghy being the number one priority on the list of requirements, with a centreboard fitted instead of the dagger board as used by other manufacturers would be a great advantage with comfortable seating, a dry cockpit and a self-draining floor.

The boat should have a deep floor with plenty of leg room and a very high boom to make tacking and gybing easy and an easy reefing system.  Training schools teach capsize drills, so a boat that would be hard to invert, unless required, would also be a major benefit, also make it easy for a novice sailor to get upright.  When righted the boat should be empty of water would be an excellent benefit.  The boat should handle well in big sea conditions and should be able to be sailed by one or two adults.  With a choice of spinnaker systems either asymmetric or symmetric.

The H12.2 has been exported to many countries and is used by holiday sailing companies and many of the leading sailing and training centres throughout the UK.  The H12.2 is used by many families and has more than achieved its position in the sailing world.

We are proud to say all the benefits, plus more have been achieved.  We believe the H12.2 dinghy is the most stable 12ft (3.65m) sailing dinghy in the world.  Designed to give confidence and bring a smile to whoever sails the boat.  The H12.2 was not designed to be a boring boat, with the right conditions it will get up and plain and be exciting to sail.

When we sell a new boat, Hartley Boats likes to complete a full boat handover.  Not only to ensure that you understand how to rig your new boat but most importantly that you get the best from your new investment, enjoy sailing the boat and come off the water wanting to return and sail again.

We at Hartley Boats are very proud of our standards and build quality, to demonstrate that statement we are the only manufacturer to offer a 4-year guarantee.  If you need your boat to be delivered, we can accommodate.
