Harbor Harvest develops hybrid cargo vessel for farm-to-table food

A new farm-to-table vessel will be sailing out of Mamaroneck soon.

The company Harbor Harvest says it is dedicated to developing the relationship between farmer, harvest and consumer. It sells fresh, locally sourced vegetables, butchered meats and dairy products to restaurants and grocery stores.

Bob Kunkel, the owner of Harbor Harvest, has designed a vessel to create a more efficient route to deliver the products. He says it’s the first U.S.-built hybrid cargo vessel.

“We’re trying to take congestion off the highways and put freight back on the water,” he told News 12.

The Harbor Harvest boat will be recharged during loading and unloading of products.
