Stbd. broadside

A fine boat for a couple wanting to get out on the Sound this summer and fall or good for a novice learning to sail.  The Newport 30 MK-III are very well regarded for their stability and strength overall.

If you’ve been out with your friends and neighbors enjoying their boats as the weather finally turns to summer, then this is a very good first sailboat for you.  She’s easy to sail singlehanded and simple to operate.

We’ve spent the past two months getting this boat checked out throughly and she’s been very well cleaned inside and out.  All of the cushions went out to be professionally cleaned, she’s fresh inside and no ‘boat smells.’  Along the way we’ve repaired numerous small fixes, did some minor mechanical work, installed a new hot water heater and have learned all of her systems.  She’s ready to go!

Her Universal XP- 25hp diesel runs strong and the sails are in good condition.  She’ll need a new cockpit dodger by next summer,  but it will get you through another winter. 

Give us a call – we think this boat will be gone soon!

We are quite selective about the vessels we accept into our program and we pursue a very rigorous process before they are listed for sale.  This begins when we meet with the donor to discuss the condition and upkeep of their boat.  Once accepted, each new arrival undergoes a thorough examination, similar to what a marine surveyor will do.  This allows us to prioritize our attention to any deferred maintenance or repairs that may be needed. 

Over the years we’ve performed just about every kind of marine repair from electrical and plumbing issues to all types of appearance enhancements and rebuilding engines.  If something is not working right we fix it, simple as that.  We prove that her electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems are correct, safe and functioning properly.  By doing all of this we know our boats quite well – top to bottom – and present them fairly and honestly to buyers.  

We encourage you to have our boats professionally surveyed as a part of your purchase process.  By the time we’ve finished and the boat is advertised, we are confident you’ll receive a strong report from your surveyor.  

Thank you for considering PMF boats in your search !
