The Newport 30 is an excellent racer/cruiser, with all of the comforts needed to spend weekends aboard and an active one design class.

This is my second Gary Mull design. Started with a Ranger 26 in
1973 and bought the Newport 30 in 1987. Both are fine sailing boats, though the Newport is much more stable in choppy seas.
Lots of boat for the price. Replaced raw water cooled Volvo 13 hp with new Yanmar 18 hp with heat exchanger. Added a two blade Max prop at the same time and picked up at least one knot of speed motoring as well as great reverse thrust with the Max prop.
Ever wonder why the water tank filler cap and the holding tank pumpout are about a foot apart in the forepeak hatch? Never used
the holding tank until recently. Put 3 foot hose straight up to flush mounted pump out lid on the port deck. Much more convenient and no danger of drinking water contamination.
