The last remaining example of the revered Northeast Harbor 30 class. Designed in 1932 by Nicholas Potter and A. Sidney Herreshoff for yachtsmen of the Mount Desert Island Community in Maine, the Northeast Harbor 30s were built by Herreshoff Manufacturing Company and are probably better suited to contemporary ownership than many other classic designs of that era.
