Bill Hardin, best known for being a pioneer of the Taiwanese boat building industry for the American market, penned the Hardin 45 Voyager in the late 1970s. It’s a heavy displacement bluewater boat particularly well set up for cruising in comfort and style. A total of around 160 Hardin 45s were built by the time the factory closed in the mid 1980s.

“Carricklee” is a very well cared for proven blue water cruiser that has been everywhere and is in very good shape. A storied boat in that her previous long-time owners wrote two cruising guidebooks and used Carricklee as their vessel during this time, she is featured on the covers of both of the cruising guides (SF Bay Area and Hawaii)

Hardin 45’s have a following as bluewater live aboards, comfortable and safe due to heavy full keel design. A Hardin owned by Gordon and Joan Mery has been credited with a nine year circumnavigation; they commented after 38,000 miles under their keel, “it isnʼt that fast for a boat, but sheʼs pretty quick for a house”.

This is a classy solid offshore vessel with graceful lines and an open, comfortable layout that was ahead of her time. She will take you safely around the bay or around the globe, gaining admirers along the way. This is a one-of-a-kind yacht & a unique & special opportunity.

Located in Mazatlán, one of Mexico’s most alluring cruising destinations. Over the past decade, the ‘Pearl of the Pacific’ has breathed new life with an ongoing renewal program that continues to bear fruit. The result is something truly unique: Two full-service marinas in a touristic zone next to a historic resplendent colonial district only a short walk from a 20km-long crescent of sandy beach. Let our experts show you how easy it is to own a yacht in Mexico and begin your cruising dreams today.

Boat History

A brief glimpse into 50,000 ocean miles aboard CARRICKLEE, by Bob and Carolyn Mehaffy

“We bought CARRICKLEE in San Diego in June 1992 on a return trip from Mexico, having left months earlier from San Francisco abord our Columbia 40, RESOLUTE. During the year period between 1992 and the end of 1996, we made many trips along the California coast between Bodega Bay and the Offshore Islands of Southern California. In those same years we made numerous offshore passages from San Francisco to the Farallon Islands, carrying reserach scientists to and from those Islands. We also made trips from San Francisco to the California Delta, exploring this amazing water world between the San Francisco Bay and the cities of Sacramento and Stockton.

While we were learning to cruise aboard CARRICKLEE in the 4 1/2 year period between 1992 and late 1996, we also began to outfit the boat for ocean cruising. When we had bought the boat, it was virtually new and not equipped for cruising; this we spent those first years getting it ready to go to sea.

After we retired in January of 1997, we set out from San Francisco on a passage to the Hawaiian Islands. On this first trip, we sailed to each of the major Hawaiian Islands as well as out to Midway Atoll, doing research and writing for our second book, CRUISING GUIDE TO THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS. In mid-1998 we set out on a passage from Honolulu to Seattle. We then spent time cruising all of Puget Sound, Canada′s West Coast area and Alaska as far north as Glasier Bay. We ended our 1997-1999 cruising in San Diego, crossing the border into Mexico on Jan.1,2000.

We spent the years 2000-2002 cruising Mexico from Ensenada far into the Sea of Cortes many times, visiting most of the Islands and villages in the northen part of the Sea, then hauling the boat each of those three years at Marina Seca in San Carlos.In late 2003, we continued cruising from San Carlos to Chiapas in Southern Mexico and on into Guatemala and El Salvador, leaving CARRICKLEE in El Salvador for the summer season. After returning to the boat in the fall of 2004, we sailed on to Nicargua, Costa Rica, Panama and Ecuador. We spent 2004-2006 making passages to various destinations in Ecuador, including Guayaquil and the Galapagos Islands. From the Galapagos Islands, we sailed back to Costa Rica and Panama, where we took delivery of a new sportboat. We then sailed again to La Libertad, Ecuador, where we left the boat on the hard in the summer months while we returned to the USA.

In late 2006, we returned from Ecuador to Panama and transited the Panama Canal in January of 2007 into the Caribbean. We spent our first season in the Caribbean in Bocas del Toro and crossed to Cartagena, Colombia, where we hauled the boat for the summer while we returned to the USA. During the years 2007-2010 we cruised the coastlines of Colombia, Panama, Aruba, Curacao, Bonaire, the offshore Islands of Venezuela, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic. While cruising the Caribbean, we returned to Cartagena each summer to store the boat while we flew back to the USA. Between late 2010 to 2012, we slowly made the long passage from Cartagena, Colombia, to Mazatlan, Mexico. This was one of the most enjoyable of our many
passages.

During the years between 2012-2014, we made many passages in Mexico between Zihuatanejo and Cabo San Lucas, and far north into the Sea of Cortes. During the years 2014-2017, we sailed from Mazatlan to the USA, spending our time reseaarching and revising our Cruising Guide to the San Francisco Bay area. When that book revision was complete, we also went on to complete the revision of our Cruising Guide to the Hawaiian Islands before returning to Puerto Vallata and Mazatlan in 2018-2019.”

It was at this point that the current owner purchased “Carricklee” from Bob & Carol in 2020 but has not had the opportunity to sail her much. All the while, though, he made a myriad small improvements and maintained her really well, thanks to the excellent service providers in Mazatlan.

Accommodations

Going down through the companionway, to port is an L shape galley with double stainless-steel sinks, a gimbaled oven/stove and lots of storage. The top & side loading fridge/freezer is located comfortably in the corridor connecting the galley to the aft cabin.

The corridor provides more storage area, a top counter for navigation charts and an access to the diesel engine and electrical panels.The aft cabin has a double bed orientated from beam to beam with lots of natural light coming from sides/aft portholes and a top hatch.

To starboard heading forward a door separates the cabin from the head/stall shower that can also be accessed from the starboard side corridor. Leaving the head going forward, the corridor is hosting a work-bench and is leading to the main cabin area straight into a diner-style dinette across from the galley.

Going forward from the Galley area, down two steps, is a large Salon with comfortable settees on starboard and port as well as Pilot Berths above the settees on both sides. A drop-leaf table is centered and can be passed on both sides when folded. Forward is the forward head.
