Pros:
Cons:

Its a 30ft sloop with a full keel, 4.5ft draft,10ft beam.
Vary roomy cabin with 6ft+ head room. Sleeps 6 if frendly, 4
if not in a V dubble & a under the cockpit dubble. Full head & gally. The sail plan is conservative but moves prety good for 5 tons. It has an inboard volvo 23hp deisel. This is my first boat and I've only owned it since oct. 96. But I'm having fun doing all the little things to get it into shape for the comming summer. So far I'm vary happy with the boat and I'm looking forward to trips to Catalina and just some good times off Dana Point. I would like to hear from other owners or just to pass the bull.

Pros:
Cons:

Very strong boat with a sloped bow which makes sailing in choppy seas very comfortable. 5 tons with the sloped bow means it drills holes in 2-3 ft waves and does not bounce like a cork. Over 6 ft head room in the cabin and very roomy feeling. 6 knots maximum hull speed but the boat can achieve 6 knots without a much wind as was needed for my Catalina 27. 12 people went sailing on July 4th and there was pleanty of room. I intend to sail this vessel to St. Thomas within 2 years. Normally, I would not try this transit in a 30 ft boat however, the Buccaneer 305, is not your ordinary 30 Ft boat. It is more like the Hunter 35.5. I have totally rebuilt the boat (Engine, water heater, pumps, interior, electrical systems, stove, counter tops, installed central heat/AC, etc..). This is a NEW BOAT! It was on the front cover of Heartland Boating Magazine, April 1999, for an article they were doing on Paris Landing State Park, in Paris, Tennessee. All total, I have under $27,000 in the vessel and the sureyor says "$72,000". Babba Boo, Babba Bing. And it is all paid for.
I love my Buccaneer, McKeon's Irish Pub.

Pros:
Cons:

I'm 6'3 and I can walk around in it. I've had fifteen people aboard and it still sails. It is very comfortable for 6-10 people. The flared bow makes it sea-kindly and dry. I just hauled it out after four years in the water. No blisters. I have a 28 hp Volvo, which is a bit overpowered. It's a great boat for Puget Sound and the Gulf Islands.
