Located in central New Jersey


Owner's comments:


Classic Boston Whaler Harpoon 5.2 Sailboat (1978) with Cuddy, in excellent, original condition.  Purchased in 1988, we are the second owners.   Our boat has been lightly used, and garage stored. This boat is complete, with all of the standard Boston Whaler Harpoon 5.2 equipment; including: North Sails (main and jib), Kenyon mast and boom, Harken standing and running rigging, and Elvstrom self-bailers. The Deck Seats, Fore-Deck Cover, Center Thwart, and Outboard Motor Mount are made of solid Teak.  The Trailer is a Calkins (Hot Dip Galvanized) with 5.30-12” tires, Bearing Buddies, and dolly. The Rudder/Tiller and Keel are original, and are in great condition. The outboard is a 4 HP Evinrude, Long Shaft (1985) with remote tank and teak tank holder.  For Trailering, we have a solid mahogany crutch (mast and boom), and a forward mast holder on the trailer.


This 17' Daysailer has a 7'-6" beam, Draft of 4.5”/44” and 160 square feet of sail. The Harpoon 5.2 is stable and fun to sail.  It is perfect for the individual sailor or a family.  With its roomy cockpit, the boat comfortably and safely seats four.  The Cuddy keeps your belongings dry and out of the way.  Designed by C&C Yachts and built by Boston Whaler, the Unsinkable Harpoon 5.2 has been referred to as the "Mercedes of Dinghies".


The magazine, Small Craft Advisor, published a wonderful review of this great boat in January, 2017, Edition # 103. You can also find the original Boston Whaler Harpoon 5.2 brochure with full specs and other details on the Unofficial Harpoon Website (


The boat is stored at our home in central New Jersey.


In 2017 we downsized from the Harpoon 5.2 to a new Melonseed from Crawford Boat Works.
