area. The centerboard has a highly efficient foil shaped and is filled with structural putty and lead ballast to provide
negative buoyancy. Centerboard hoist via wire cable to winch on deck The balanced, high aspect spade rudder is
two part female molded FRP with 3 1/2" stainless steel rudder stock. Bulkheads are built of marine grade plywood,
reinforced with FRP in areas of chain plates. FRP fuel and water tanks integral to the hull, for additional stiffness to
hull laminate and to use the maximum amount of volume available.
Centerboard configuration offers a minimum draft of 5’-6” with board up and a maximum draft of 11’-4” with board
Topsides are flag blue Awlgrip with double white boot stripe, green bottom and gold leaf cove stripe. Cabin house is
white with light gray nonskid. Mast and boom are finished with Metallic Grey Awlgrip.

epoxy putty to the inboard angled hull flange with 5/16" bolts on 8" centers. All deck hatch landings are molded in
FRP. The propane locker is molded separately and ventilated with direct drain overboard.

In 2018/2019 Robin Hood was repowered with a brand new Yanmar 4JH11X1. This engine complies with US and CE emission regulations. During the repower the shaft and Aquadrive were replaced.
The vessel was also upgraded with a Northern Lights 9 kW genset, including electrocoil.
Robin Hood was upgraded to all new Raymarine electronics package in 2020.
Other features include:
The main cockpit is large and functional, designed for easy exit each side without climbing over coaming. The
steering pedestal houses all engine instrumentation, sail handling functions and sailing instruments for easy access
by helmsman, as are all deck winches.
ROBIN HOOD is a great example of Ted Hood's popular Little Harbor 53 series. Her unique hull design features
generous beam and displacement to provide exceptional living and storage space as well as remarkable stability
and sea kindliness offshore. Her low wetted surface hull is also easily driven in light wind by a high-aspect sail plan.
Upwind performance is enhanced by a deep, efficient centerboard that increases draft to 11'4" when lowered. Most
unique of all is the cockpit design, which allows one person to handle all sail controls without leaving the helm while
ROBIN HOOD was previously Ted Hood’s personal yacht “Robin”.
