The Little Harbor 55 takes the traditional downeast look and adds waterjet power to create high-performance in a classic, two-stateroom cruising yacht.

Key Features

    Stidd leather pedestal helm chairs raise and lower electrically and the captain’s chair has an autopilot joystick for the ultimate in luxury control. The galley, surprisingly, takes a tip from sailors with cold plates instead of regular refrigeration so you need not run the 15-kW generator at anchor in order to keep food cold. Hamilton waterjets hitched to MAN diesels powered the 55 to a top speed of 51 mph, but the round bottom and lack of a keel can result in squirrelly handling at speed.
