Hull & Design
World Class America's Cup Sailor Ted Hood penciled the lines of the Little Harbor along with renowned designed Raymond Hunt until the early 2000s. Ted Hood Yacht Builders and Little Harbor, based Portsmouth R.I. were soon acquired by Hinckley Yachts, creators of the household term "Lobster Boat TM."
Her long, raked-out bowlines, Deep-Vee Hull shape and Shallow draft make this beauty ideal for any harbor.
Laid up with Kevlar, wrapped around a Balsa Wood Core and reinforced with Fiberglass over Foam Stringers she boasts a light weight construction. These characteristics allow her captain to achieve hull speeds approaching 40mph.
