Pros:
Cons:

A wonderful boat. Good looking, strong, fast and a joy to sail. I have owned this boat for 20 years and love it.
The interior is very well done. Obviously a quality boat.
Most boats I get on seem inferior to this boat.

This is great sailing boat. Quality workmanship, solid & comfortable. The only thing I don't like is the hydraulic drive. It has given me too much trouble inthe 8 years I've owned her. I'm tempted to get ridof the inboard & hang an outboard on her. I would like to hear from other owners re: the hydraulic drive.

Pros:
Cons:

Beautifull solid boat with thick fiberglass and no core. Will take a pounding and ask for more. Headroom is a rare find in this size boat. Plywood backing under deck has rotted in some places. Stem chainplate requires vigilance, Iron rusts without maintenance. Significant blistering in warm Gulf waters. Do not like outboard due to reverse transom and no easy way to get at it. Inboard hydraulic destroyed under previous ownership. 8hp Farymann in forepeak with no room for proper exhaust.

Pros:
Cons:

We bought this Scampi 6 months ago after it's crossing from California to Hawaii. We spent the 6 months restoring her. Our first sail was awesome, 15 knt winds and full sail. We think We're really going to enjoy this boat. We don't have the engine/hydraulic drive problems discussed by others. Our engine has been replaced by a M3-20B Universal and moved aft, under the companionway. It is direct drive and the prop is just forward of the rudder. It seems to work great, the fuel tank is where the old engine was.

I am considering purchasing a 1979 Scampi and have been all over the internet searching with lots in Swedish but little in English. It was wonderful to find these posts. If you have any more to say about the boat it would be wonderful to hear. The one that I am considering is in Florida.

Pros: Solid, easy to handle, good heavy weather boat.
Cons: Heavy, needs above 6knts to move, initially tender.

Great boat for a first time owner. Re-cored the port deck from above, re-outfitted entire hardware package via eBay and Defender. New sails and boom. She is heavy and needs some decent air to get her moving. She is also initially tender so she heels with out much effort. Has a hard time sailing to her rating in anything under 12knts, but moves well under #3 and full main. Cockpit is very small but cabin is very nice for her size. Refuses to reverse to the left due to skeg and prop rotation. I had problems getting 6knts under power in forward but could get 6knts in reverse! Installed an opposite handed Flex-O-Fold and it works great. Just have to remember that forward and reverse on the handle is now opposite.

Pros: Everything which is stated below. We have owned Scandalous - Scampi30 mk3 for 17 years.
Cons: None really.

An awesome 30ft half ton cup cruiser race. Despite their age they are still competetive in the club raccing circuits and yet are excellent sea boats. Strong and stiff they will ride out the severest of conditions - one survinved the infamous 1979 fastnet (we have the mainsail to prove it!).
