'Harvest Moon' has been my pride & joy since 2008, when I found her in Oriental, North Carolina. Had her surveyed and all recommended upgrades and repairs were taken care of. Sailed/motored up the ICW to Newport, VA, and then offshore to New York harbor, up the East River, and into Long Island Sound.

Over the past 12 years we have explored the Sound, and made numerous cruises to Block Island, Newport (Rhode Island), Cuttyhunk, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, and Provincetown, along with other destinations along the way.

She is very comfortable on such long trips, and very solid when the weather gets nasty.

The shoal keel lets me go where others can’t, enabling me to explore the Peconic Bays at the east end of Long Island, Ram Island on Sag Harbor, and many secluded inlets. I’m not much of a day sailor, preferring to go over the horizon for weeks at a time, and 'Harvest Moon' is the perfect boat for that.

The V-berth sleeps two, the quarter berth can sleep two, but ideal for one. The cabin table can be converted to a very comfortable double bed, utilizing the various settee cushions.

The interior is very cozy, thanks to a great extent to the generous amount of teak in evidence, much more so than in newer 'plastic' boat designs. One of my favorite pastimes when sitting out a rainy day is oiling the teak in the cabin.

She’s not the fastest boat out there, but she is one of the most comfortable.
