Boat Type:Sail Boat
Model:30 Keel Centerboard
1975 Hunter 30 Keel Centerboard
This 1975 Hunter has been maintained, upgraded, customized and would compete with many newer boats. I feel this is a very good buy in today’s market.
The older fiberglass boats were made with thicker fiberglass than the newer models, making them much stronger, Also, this boat has a lead keel whereas the newer boats have Iron keels which tend to rust, With this keel-centerboard feature it allows you to sail into shallower waters, You have a stainless steel anchor and a Lewmar stainless steel bow roller made especially for Delta Anchors, This along with an electric Windlass makes anchoring a breeze, Her large rudder attached to a skeg makes it easier to handle and adds a sense of security.
Upgrading to a Yanmar 2GM 20FDiesel Engine has eliminated the vibrations from the original Yanmar YSE12 one Lunger, Due to the amount of electronics and refrigeration on the boat, the boat was upgraded to 6 #27 AGM batteries, In addition, there is a Wind generator mounted on the stern,
The boat was rewired 3 three years ago with a new electrical panel.
It has 6 sails –2 full batten Mains, 2 -150 Jibs; 1-135 Jib and 1 Jenaker with sock, The Jib is self furling and you have an interior boom furling Main, There is a standard boom with a full batten Main, lazy jacks and a boom cover should you desire to change to a standard boom and Mainsail Rig,
There is a 4 Man Emergency Life Raft in Canister mounted in a stainless steel cradle on deck.
Sailing can be handled by a couple in any weather and I would also attest that I have handled it single handedly without a problem while the wife was below preparing chow, With the extra hatches and 4” Solar Vents you have plenty of Fresh air, I have rigged shut offs for the vents for cooler weather,
The upgraded interior certainly gives a roomy, airy and more comfortable feeling below even during a gloomy day outside, The inside was remodeled with teak cabinets and teak louvered doors, teak bookcase with mounted oversized Clock and Barometer, custom cushions, carpeting, curtains and blinds.
The toilet bowl in the head has been replaced with a household size bowl and converted to manual/electric.
By reviewing the list of extras and the pictures of upgrades, you will see that I did not spare anything to add comforts to our summer home, My wife and I have always felt more than relaxed on board, The boat has been my pet and looked after as a member of the family,
In addition to the standard equipment of lifejackets, fire extinguishers, flares, I have added/upgraded: Propeller to a Campbell Sailor 3 bladed sailboat Propeller; Shaft Shark rope/line and debris cutter on propeller shaft.
