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!
