Harry – France

One of the first sets of harry plans sold was for a 12m/40′ cedar strip version to a builder in Sete, France about 12 years ago. I did not hear from him after he got the plans apart from a couple of reports that the build was progressing. Then nothing. Recently, the hulls were discovered in a field by a French sailor who raced proas across the Atlantic in the 80’s.


The T60 is the tender for the C60. Counter intuitively perhaps, a big tender is a good fit for the harryproa philosophy of making boats simpler, lighter and cheaper as only one engine is required rather than 2 or 3. It is also safer because it is more stable than the typical inflatable or small tender.
