The New Harbor 30 DaysailerPlus Video
The new Harbor 30, W.D. Schock's newest addition to its fleet of fine performance daysailers, took to the water for a fantastic day of sailing which turned into an impromptu race practice.
Designers Steve and Tom Schock dub the yacht a "Daysailer Plus," merging true cruising capability with daysailing features.
"We've combined traditional lines with nimble performance in a terrific yacht that sailors will love for decades to come," Tom said.
The traditional lines belie modern features that simplify single-handed sailing. There is a self-tacking jib on a proven Hoyt boom. The hidden control lines lead to winch islands that are at arms length from the pedestal wheel. The ingenious mainsheet system keeps the large cockpit uncluttered. The result is a spacious haven without challenging obstacles for sailors and their guests.
The Harbor 30 Daysailer Plus wraps simple, comfortable accommodations into an interior of subtle curves, rich mahogany trim and modern surfaces with a traditional feel. The Herreshoff style interior of white bulkheads with varnished wood trim completes the understated elegance. The result is a feeling of privacy and function which is unmatched in a yacht of this size.
Below-deck features include berths for four adults, six-foot standing headroom, a fully enclosed head with an artfully designed sink, a seaworthy two-burner stove, along with hot and cold pressure water in both the head and galley.
The high-performance underbody, spade rudder and 6'3" bulb keel provide balance, speed and skipper-pleasing control even in the most demanding conditions.
A bowsprit and asymmetric sail are easily added for exceptional sailing performance.
Modern materials minimize maintenance; there is no external wood to maintain or varnish. Blister-resistant vinylester resin is used in the outer layers of the solid fiberglass hand laid up hull. Carbon fiber reinforcements are installed in key areas. Extra strong chain plates are made of rustproof high-tensile strength G10 epoxy laminate. The Harbor 30 is a durable boat built for the long term.
A three-cylinder, 20-horsepower Yanmar diesel engine easily drives the yacht above six knots.
