The concept for the Harbor 25 is identical to the concept Schock had for the Harbor 20. This beautiful Steven Schock design has a large comfortable cockpit, classic lines, traditional details, and an efficient hull shape. Most important of all, sailing is delightfully easy. The Harbor 25 has a self-tacking jib and lazy jacks for the main. It is also equipped with an inboard engine, a head compartment for full-sized people, and bunks for naps and overnight cruising.
The self-bailing cockpit of the Harbor 25 is eight feet in length and comfortably seats six adults. The Harbor 25 has the same sail control systems as the Harbor 20 - the halyards are internal, and they are led aft to the cockpit for easy sail adjustments. The engine is a Yanmar diesel with a saildrive. It is a 2 cylinder 4 stroke engine.
From the Designer's Wife
I knew the Harbor 25 was designed and equipped for overnight cruising, but it wasn't until Tom and I spent four days and three nights aboard that I really came to appreciate all of the subtle details that make this boat so nice for cruising. The Harbor 25 is definitely easy to sail, it powers effortlessly, the cockpit is huge compared to most large cruising sailboats, and the interior is equipped with everything you need for an enjoyable overnight stay in your favorite cove. The attention to detail is amazing.
