About Harbor 20
Schock has blended the classic beauty of a traditional daysailer with state-of-the art marine technology. While the Harbor 20 presents a graceful silhouette, its thoroughly modern underbody and rig make for a fast and easily-handled contemporary daysailer. The result is a beautiful, cost effective, and easy-to-use boat that will always be in
style. With incredible stability and loads of conveniences, the Harbor 20 can be rigged in minutes and sailed single-handedly, or with a group. There is no better opportunity to share sailing excitement with friends and family – whether they are seasoned sailors or completely inexperienced. Celebrating over sixty years of boat-building excellence, the Schock heritage continues with the Harbor 20.
The Harbor 20’s accommodating cockpit holds up to eight guests, and no one needs to sit on the rail to balance the boat, or duck under the boom when tacking. Deep coamings provide comfortable back support, and two easily accessible ice chests quickly render your favorite refreshment.
A fine entry with firm bilges and a long run aft give the Harbor 20 high speed potential, high stability and the ability to move smoothly through choppy water. The rudder is placed well aft, and the 900 lb. bulb keel keeps the weight low. This keel design gives the boat plenty of stability without slowing the boat down in light air. The Harbor 20’s excellent performance makes it a natural club racer, especially because it can be raced competitively either single-handidly or with a crew of two or more.
The Harbor 20 was designed with simplicity in mind, whether sailing upwind or down wind, and whether daysailing or racing. The roller-furling headsail and self-tacking club boom will delight your crew. And when running wing-and-wing, the club boom acts as an automatic winger, effortlessly holding out the jib. And the control panel just aft of the mast is centralized convenience at its very best. So, when you are ready to go sailing, all you have to do is raise the main, roll out the jib, and throw off the bow line. When you return to the dock, just roll the jib back up, stow the main neatly on the boom using the lazy jacks, and cover the boat and jib with the optional cockpit cover and jib sock.
All halyards and lines are led below the deck to Harken hardware mounted on a shelf at the aft edge of the cuddy cabin. This sensible design keeps the deck clean and also simplifies sail control. Everything is within easy reach for the skipper and crew.
The Self-tacking Hoyt club boom makes short-tacking up the harbor very easy indeed.
