Designed and built as a ketch, L’EQUIPE has the reduced rig height that permits cruising the U.S. Intercoastal Waterway, making her unique to her breed. L’EQUIPE has had just two ownerships since new and has been kept in truly top-notch condition. In 2004-05 she underwent a comprehensive refit which included new sails, a new generator and wiring, along with Awlgrip for the topsides, deck and spars and more. L’EQUIPE awaits her next owner to enjoy her and all that makes the famed Little Harbor 53 one of the most exceptional sailing yachts ever.
Three staterooms, two heads with stall showers in a rich teak interior.
