The Hartley 12 is manufactured in the UK  and is a very easy to manage and delightfully responsive roto mould modern dinghy. This attractive dinghy is particularly suited to those in the early stages of sailing. The Hartley 12 is so easy to sail, it's wide beam and deep hull shape allow it to be quite tolerant and forgiving of the kind of developmental mistakes made by less experienced sailors.

 The Hartley 12 comes with a single reef-able sail and has a clip on jib option. The deep hull shape enables you to sit-in this dinghy which a far more comfortable sailing position for adult sailors and much kinder on the knees than sit-on styles! The high boom position makes for much better all-around visibility and fewer bumps on the head for beginners.

The attractive hull shape moves swiftly over the water and self drains effortlessly.

 The Hartley 12 has a centreboard rather than a dagger-board to enable easy launching, having a centreboard and an easy up-and-down rudder gives this boat a distinct advantage over other dinghies of this size during the launching and recovering of the boat.

The soft sail can be easily reefed by simply rotating the mast and wrapping the excess sail neatly around the mast to reduce the sail area. There is an optional clip-on jib and a high-performance mainsail available for enhanced performance and additional excitement.

The mast can come in two pieces for ease of transport on a car top or road trailer.
