Fractional rig, Great crusing boat. Universal 5411 diesel is undersized for the displacement weight but can be worked around with the correct prop ie: a 3 blade Max Prop. Interior space is larger then most boats of this ara. Extreemly sound well built boat.

Pros: Well laid out, large interior. Sails very well. Relatively easy to single hand.

This is the Ticon 30 that was built in Canada. It is a later model of the TMI 30 or Chrysler 30 Osprey.

All round this is an excellent cruising boat for me and my family. It sails well and is very roomy for a 30. The boat was well maintained and appointed by previous owners. The boat is relatively easy to single hand. It handles heavy air pretty well, 20+ kts without reefing.

The 11 hp Universal deisel runs well and pushes the boat along at 6 kts with just a 2 bladed prop. Engine compartment opens up along the front and sides for good access. The engine compartment has lots of room for extra batteries or a larger fuel tank. I installed 4 golf cart batteries for accessory power and a separate starting battery.

The boat sails surprisingly well for the amount of beam it has (11 feet). There is a sight amount of weather helm, just enough to have a good feel when reaching in a 10 kt wind. It has a 7/8 fractional rig that allows it to point high and make good speed to windward. Herreshoffs know something about designing boats, I guess.

The interior is very nicely done. Lots of teak accents, teak and holly sole, mahogany panelling. All of the portlights open for good ventilation and seal with heavy latches to ensure the water stays out. Comfortable seating with thick uphostered foam cushions.

The deck has color coordinated non skid to match the hull. Minimal teak on the topsides makes for little maintenance (more sailing). Winches are large and handle the running rigging well. The cockpit is roomy enough for the four of us to be in for the whole day without bumping into each other. Instruments (Ritchie compass, Datamarine wind, speed & depth) are all mounted on the helm. The teak wheel is a nice touch but if you get tired of it, the Raymarine Autopilot will take over.

Overall, I think this boat is well suited for where we sail (Great Lakes) and I'm very happy with it.

There are 10 kinds of people. Those who understand binary and those who don't.
