The 30' Dark Harbor 20 was designed in 1934 by Sparkman & Stephens in response to a request from members of the Tarratine Club on Islesboro, ME, where these sleek marconi rigged sloops continue racing to this day.  

BETSY DIGBY (Originally GHOST) was built of cold-molded wood/epoxy construction in 1997 by John England and Taylor Allen at Rockport Marine.  She was John England's first new build with Rockport Marine and the first cold-molded boat built by the yard.  Done on speculation to show the world what John England and Taylor Allen were capable of together; she was the first in a series of many now famous large high-profile cold-molded yachts.  

Well maintained and still in "as new" structural condition, the only departures taken from the original design were the curved, elliptical cabin trunk and cockpit coamings - which have proven to be more attractive and much more comfortable then the originals.   

Down below there are two settee-bunks with comfortable sitting headroom for an afternoon nap or a weekend "camp-cruise" 

Whether racing in local classic yacht regattas or leisurely family daysailing, or both - I can't imagine a more perfect boat.
