Nick Hardy

In the early 90’s Nick Hardy operated a beautiful ‘Dunkirk Little ship’ called ‘Llanthony’ a 85′ Camper & Nicholson 1930 classic motor yacht, along the Turkish Aegean coast. Since that time he has used his experience to help others promote their own charter yachts. In 1993 he set up the Independent Holiday Shop in Winchester, offering bespoke and tailor-made holidays throughout the world, whilst continuing to represent classic yachts owners. In 2002 he was presented with the prestigious ‘Best independent travel agency’ award in the UK by Travel Weekly Magazine. In 2005 he sold his travel agency to concentrate more on helping classic yacht owners promote their beautiful boats.
