The Harbor 25 is a delight to sail. After I climbed aboard, this lively sloop began doing laps around much bigger boats as they lumbered in light air around the bay. The cockpit is 8 feet long, deep, roomy, and has high coamings. The helmsman can choose to look over the cabin house or duck behind it when spray blows back. All excess line stows in built-in pockets in the coamings and cabin bulkhead, eliminating the need for multiple sheet bags.
