Description: A Classic Yet Modern “Superior Small Cruiser”!!

The Stone Horse is a legendary pocket cruiser designed in 1931 by Samuel S. Crocker for “the rough, shoal waters and fresh breezes, south and west of Cape Cod”. The name Stone Horse was taken from that of a lightship at eastern end of Nantucket Sound. William Lee of Harwichport MA built almost 40 wooden hull models before World War II interrupted production. In 1968, Mait Edey and Peter Duff partnered to build “a superior small cruising” boat having five essential characteristics: ease of handling, comfort, seaworthiness, speed, and beauty. They determined that the Stone Horse met those requirements but adapted the design for modern construction methods. She was the first production boat to use closed-cell Airex foam and fiberglass composite materials. This combination of design and construction proved very popular and Edey & Duff built 150 additional Stone Horse models between 1969 and 1992.

The Stone Horse is a cutter-rigged sloop with a full keel and draws only 3.5 feet, so you can sail it almost anywhere. She is sturdy, safe, dry and can be easily single-handed. She has a roomy cockpit with seating for 6 adults. Her interior cabin provides comfortable overnight accommodations for two with a generously-sized v-berth, a galley with icebox and sink, and a porta-potti.

“Ol' Mole” is a real head turner and has been cared for in Bristol fashion by her owner since 1984. She is well equipped, clean, and beautifully maintained.
