1983 Little Harbor 44' (13.41 m) CC
Oxford, Maryland, United States
Flag of Registry: United States
- Center Cockpit
- Fiberglass Hull
"Atalanta" is an exceptionally lovely vessel. She is 1 of only 6 center cockpit Little Harbors built. Her original owner was Ted Hood himself and he had her from 1983 to 1986 and was called "Robin Too". These boats were built to cruise in comfort and her interior joinery is not found on boats today. Her versatile design gives her shoal draft ability for the Bahama's, the inland coastal waterway, and gunk holing in the Chesapeake. With the Board down she stiffens up and is capable of offshore sailing to the Caribbean or around the world. Her mast is 61' and will clear the bridges down the inland coastal waterway.
"Atalanta" is easily handled by one person with her electric furling Hood main sail and electric primary winches. All sail control lines lead back to her large, comfortable center cockpit. She has received many upgrades with her present owner with a new 110HP Yanmar dsl installed in 2015, New 6.5KW generator in 2013, updated electronics, Barrier coated bottom 2015 and a totally complete awlgrip including her hull, non-skid, cockpit, and coach roof in 2016. She is a true "Head Turner".
"Atalanta" has been maintained and sailed by a meticulous and experienced Yachtsman. She is outfitted and ready to cruise where ever your heart desires. Her shoal draft and 61' mast is Inland Coastal Highway capable! She is located in Oxford, MD and available by appointment only. Contact Laird Larrimore for more information. Don't pass this beauty by!

The forward cabin has a V-berth with filler, which forms a generous-sized Queen. There is a large hanging locker to port and starboard, plus storage lockers over each berth. She has excellent ventilation from an overhead hatch as well as opening ports.
The forward head, to starboard, has access from the forward cabin and the main salon. This head area includes an electric/manual toilet, sink, shower and good locker space. Opening hatch and port add light and ventilation.
The main salon has an expandable transom berth to port with storage lockers and bookshelves. Opposite, to starboard, is an L-shaped settee with a teak L-shaped dining table. There is a flat screen TV over the center of the settee for excellent visibility from anywhere in the salon, Nav. station and galley. She has a mix between the traditional wood interior and the Herreshoff design with light bulkheads. It lends to a brighter yet warm interior. All the salon cushions have been recently recovered, as well as foam replaced, in a lovely linen Sunbrella (some photos show the covers used to protect the cushions as well as the new covers). From her solid teak and holly sole to the craftsmanship of her interior cabinetry one cannot help but see what sets the Little Harbor above so many other builders.
The nav station is located in the starboard aft corner of the main salon with all electronics built in, a good chart table and storage for nautical publications.
There are two passageways leading aft to the owner's cabin. Off the Starboard passageway, aft, is the owner's head with electric fresh water toilet and stall shower. The galley is located in the Port passageway. The entire galley is done in the Herreshoff style and lightens up the passageway to the master cabin.
The owner's aft cabin has a double plus berth to starboard and a single berth to port, which, when a filler is put into place, creates a huge sleeping area. There are numerous lockers, hanging lockers, overhead hatch and opening ports..
Little Harbor's attention to detail and fine joinerwork is evident. Danish stainless cabin lamps, teak joinery, oscillating cabin fans, curtains and throw pillows create a warm, comfortable feeling belowdecks. Numerous dorade vents provide natural ventilation, and (2) units, reverse cycle air conditioning that supplies the whole vessel.
The galley is to port of the companionway and leads aft to the Master Stateroom allowing for a working area on both sides of the galley.

The water has always been a part of my life since learning to sail aboard a Sailfish while vacationing in Chatham, Massachusetts. At twelve, I graduated to Penguins and 420’s at the Tred Avon Yacht Club in Oxford, Maryland. My parents always belonged to the Corinthian Yacht Club in Philadelphia and I often accompanied them on cruises aboard a Hinckley Bermuda 40 that we cruised in the Chesapeake.
Understanding banking after working 12 years for Loyola Savings and Loan of Maryland, I helped navigate the purchase of a 32’ Pearson Vanguard for a friend and taught him to sail. Loving the idea of sharing my passion for boating, I joined Oxford Boatyard Yacht Sales (in what is now Safe Harbor Oxford Boatyard and Marina) in 1990 and worked as a broker for fifteen years.
In 1993, Oxford Boatyard Yacht Sales became a dealer for Sabre and Back Cove Motor Yachts and I acquired an understanding and respect for powerboats. I worked closely with the boatyard commissioning new vessels and working as a liaison between new owners and the marina. I have an intimate understanding of the boat buying process - how to guide new owners through surveys, sea trials, registration, and documentation.
I love all boats and each one has its own quality. Though I would consider myself a traditionalist in boat design, I like what the new designs offer in comfort and ability.
When not talking boats, my husband (of 25 years) and I live in Easton, Maryland. My husband is the rigging supervisor at Safe Harbor Oxford Boatyard and our daughter works at the marina full time, having graduated from Washington College in 2020. She earned her Teaching Certification and is applying for a teaching position in English.
I am starting my 4th year as a broker with Brewer Yacht Sales and in addition to my office at Safe Harbor Zahniser’s in Solomon’s, Maryland I now have an office at Safe Harbor Oxford. This enables me to cover the territory from the Eastern Shore to Solomon’s Island and everything in between.
I look forward to speaking with you and sharing my passion for boats. Let me help you find the perfect yacht or support and guide you in the sale of your existing vessel!
