Little Harbor Yachts is a renowned brand known for producing high-quality sailing yachts. Founded by Ted Hood in the 1950s, Little Harbor Yachts gained a reputation for building custom and semi-custom sailing yachts that were both luxurious and seaworthy. The company was based in Portsmouth, Rhode Island, and produced a range of yachts, including the Little Harbor 38, 42, 44, 46, 53, and 58 models, among others. These yachts were highly regarded for their craftsmanship, performance, and elegant design, making them popular among sailing enthusiasts and cruising aficionados. 

The Little Harbor 60 is a classic sailing yacht known for its luxurious accommodations and excellent sailing performance. These yachts are highly regarded for their craftsmanship and seaworthiness. The 60-foot model offers spacious living areas, typically featuring a master stateroom, guest cabins, a salon, and a well-equipped galley. The yacht’s design allows for comfortable cruising and often includes amenities such as a cockpit for outdoor dining and relaxation. 

LYNLEY III, a central listing with Wellington Yacht Partners, is an exceptional Little Harbor 60 yacht. Her high level of craftsmanship, engineering and ergonomics are a rarity only found in the finest of custom yachts. Exquisite joinerwork and finish, a large, comfortable center cockpit arrangement and three double staterooms make her a pleasure to be aboard. A powerful yet easily managed rig and sail plan make her a delight to sail either on a distant passage or a lazy Sunday afternoon. LYNLEY III has always been professionally maintained and continually upgraded. 

LAMLASH ~ SOLD in 2023 is a highly customized Little Harbor 58/60 model with one foot added to the standard 58 hull for a longer aft deck, draft reduced by 8” to only 4’ – 6” with centerboard up, and mast height slightly lower (20”) to provide 75’ bridge clearance. She is also one of only two in the series that features a centerline queen berth aft. Like her sisterships, LAMLASH can be easily sailed by one thanks to a cockpit design that is second to none – all sail controls and winches are at the helm, and easy side exits to main deck. She also boasts finely crafted joinerwork above and below decks that is seldom if ever seen in newer yachts today.  VIDEO ~ Little Harbor 59 ~ LAMLASH
