This classic Ted Hood-designed Little Harbor 53 features fine workmanship throughout and a unique cockpit design that allows one person to handle all sail controls without leaving the helm. Her proven hull design offers a generous displacement and beam to provide exceptional living and storage space, as well as remarkable stability and seakindliness offshore. These Little Harbors are known to be wonderful cruising yachts and RESOLUTE is a fine example.
Ideal for shallow waters, she features a deep, efficient centerboard that increases draft to 11′-4″ when lowered. She has the rare yet preferable three-cabin layout with owner’s cabin aft with queen berth, owner’s cabin forward with queen berth, and second guest cabin forward with twin berths. Only three Little Harbor 53/54s were built with this versatile layout that works well at sea and at anchor.
The current owner of RESOLUTE purchased her in 2002 and has since spared no expense over the years with professional care and many recent upgrades. For someone looking for a beautiful, high quality and comfortable sailing yacht at less than 20% of replacement cost, RESOLUTE is certainly worth a look. She’s listed for $495K USD and lies in Martha’s Vineyard.
