Basic Description:The Harbor 25 design incorporates a lean hull shape, a fine bow and firm bilges, a 49% ballast ratio, and a bulb keel to keep the weight low. The 1,900 pound keel provides good stability and great handling characteristics and is encapsulated but also bolted on with stainless steel keel bolts which are accessible below the cabin sole. The leading edge of the keel is swept 33° so weeds or underwater lines will not foul it. The spade rudder is fiberglass with a stainless steel rudder stock and is placed far aft for good control. In fact, the boat will turn easily in its own length.
Every fiberglass piece of the Harbor 25 from the main sliding hatch to the bottom of the keel is hand laid up and there are no seams or joints in the interior which is made of three individual modules ? the forepeak and V-berth area, the head compartment and the main cabin. These parts, which are constructed of plywood and then glassed, are molded by hand and fitted between the three bulkheads and bonded to the hull. The advantage to this construction is that there is less movement of the interior when the boat is under load.
The deck is a fiberglass sandwich with a core of end grain balsa. An interesting construction note is that there are no through deck penetrations and deck hardware is mounted on pads of supper tough G-10, a glass cloth laminate with an epoxy resin binder, which replaces the balsa core in some places. Winches, clutches, cleats and so on do not penetrate the deck, so there are no unsightly nuts or bolts below and the boat stays dry.
Deck, Cockpit & Rigging
The deck-stepped, double-spreader, fractional rig supports 356 square feet of sail area with a powerful main and a self-tacking jib with a boom on a roller furler. An optional retractable sprit is on starboard and comes with the optional asymmetrical spinnaker. Lazyjacks for the main, a Harken traveler and a rigid vang, which eliminates the need for a topping lift, are standard.
The Harbor 25 features a well-designed foredeck, open weather decks, an attractive trunk
cabin, a wide companionway, and an aft deck with a large lazarette hatch which opens to over 20 cubic feet of storage below. A 25 foot boat with an interior and a garage is a rare find.
All sail control lines lead to the cockpit and are within reach of the helm for easy singlehanding. Everything is color-coded and labeled. The emphasis is on a clean and uncluttered look so some of the lines such as the jib furling line actually run aft in a well just below the deck.
A bow roller and anchor chain locker are standard. There are two bow chocks and two bow cleats forward and two spring line cleats located amidships. A large round plate accommodates the self-lubricating deck bearing for the jib boom on the foredeck. The placement of the hardware allows for an optional bow pulpit.
Two self-tailing Lewmar winches sit atop the cabin house on either side of the companionway. Four turning blocks at the base of the mast manage the main halyard, jib halyard, jib sock halyard, and continuous reefing line and a Harken deck organizer leads the lines to the cockpit.
The 8? cockpit comfortably seats at least six people underway when the tiller is in use and 8-10 when at the dock or anchor. The coamings are high and the seat backs are angled for comfort and the entire cockpit stays dry even when sailing in a small chop. Schock stresses the importance of everyone staying in the cockpit, eliminating the need to hike out which is part of the appeal ? a dry, safe, comfortable ride.
The tiller is laminated wood and is the only piece aboard that requires regular varnishing. According to Tom Schock, owners have been reported to actually buy a new tiller rather than varnish the old one. Wheel steering is optional but only a few owners have gone in that direction.
