ABOUT ESPRIT

ESPRIT is one of the rare center cockpit Little Harbor 44s 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.

ESPRIT has been maintained like new. For the past 20 years she has been lavished with care by Hinckley Yacht Services. Her Yanmar engine was installed new only a few years ago, all electronics were installed new in 2013, her generator only has 581 original hours on it and her aesthetics are impeccable. There is no Little Harbor 44 in better shape than ESPRIT – she is as flawless as any non-brand-new yacht can be.

Her centerboard configuration offers a minimum draft of 5’ with board up and a maximum draft of 10.18’ with board down.

ESPRIT has had only three owners, and she has been stored inside during the winter months for all but one year. The first nine years of her life were spent mostly in fresh water. She has never been south. Anyone who sees her will be impressed.

Maintained by a meticulous yachtsman, she is ready in every way for a new owner.
