WHITEHORSE is the ideally-sized center cockpit Little Harbor for anyone who desires a powerful sailing yacht easily handled from the cockpit. She is comfortable offshore for serious cruising, with all the warmth and charm below decks after a day’s sail. Her shoal draft and moderate mast height make WHITEHORSE suitable for Intercoastal travel. Little Harbor’s fine joiner work and skilled craftsmanship are evident throughout. WHITEHORSE is attractively priced and ready for her next adventure.
WHITEHORSE is the last of the rare center cockpit 44s built by Little Harbor, offering the Aft-Cabin layout of the Little Harbor 46 in 44 feet. She can be easily handled by one person with her electric furling Hood mainsail and electric primary winches. All sail control lines lead back to her large, comfortable center cockpit.
Her mast height of 61’ allows Intercoastal access, and her centerboard configuration offers a minimum draft of 5’ with board up and a maximum draft of 10’-2” with board down. Beyond her performance design and powerful sailing prowess, WHITEHORSE offers beautiful and luxurious cruising accommodations below with superior teak joinery and finishes throughout… quite simply, she is Little Harbor at its best.
