Pros:
Cons:

the clipper marine 30 that i own was in poor cond . when i bought it . There were two kitchen layouts offered and mine has the front one which means you have to stoop over to wash dishes all the time . She sails well but need a large genoa as the sail area is small mast is only 27'. I have parts of owners manual if anyone interested and looking for parts that i am missing. all in all not a bad boat for the money

Pros:
Cons:

We found our Clipper Marine hanging of a bouy not touched for nine years and without a rudder. We designed one on our own. She sails great in heavy wind, sleek and straight. Would like some more info on her as we have so little. She is roomy and laid out well. Specifically would like specs on the rudder.

Pros: Responsive, easily handled, goes to weather well, sturdy
Cons: 6' height below decks too short for some people

What a terrific boat!

The previous two owners of our boat were not sailors and she hadn't been out in years, but had been nicely maintained as a live aboard. We had her hull inspected and she came through with flying colors, thanks to designer W.I.B. Craelock's extra thick and sturdy hull design. We made a few minor repairs, then took her out, figuring we had little more than an RV with sails and that we'd enjoy the bay and do some anchor-outs.

What a wonderful surprise she was! None of us expected for her to sail like she does. She skims along beautifully, with wonderful agility. Her maneuverability is excellent. She's responsive and SO easy to handle. On that first day, we had her out in 15-20 mph winds and 6' swells on the San Francisco Bay. She handled it all beautifully.

She is a true joy to sail, goes upwind easily (we have the larger keel option) and we can step her mast quickly and easily with four people assisting.

We contacted her designer, Mr. Craelock and asked for his recommendation on the size of genoa sail to use with her. He recommended 120%. He commented that her design is to allow for exceptionally easy handling so that she can be sailed by less-experienced sailors and can be easily trailered.

I feel that as a pleasure sailboat, she is an excellent choice and is truely a joy to sail. Well done Mr. Crealock!

We bought our cm30 in Marina Del Rey. She had been sitting for three years untouched. We installed a new Johnson 4 stroke 15 hp and we sailed it down to Long Beach. Very fun boat and handles and sails great!!! We didn't know what to expect after all the mixed reviews but are very happy with her!! See everybody in Catalina this summer!!!!

Pros: easy to single hand. simple rigging. good storage area
Cons: with the 8' beam the salon could have a better layout.

I've had my Clipper Marine 30 for about a year and sail her at least weekly. I've herd mixed rewiews but have no major complaints. shes very easy to rigg and handles well in light to strong winds of 30 to 35 knots. shes been through high swells and i sail her mostly on Sf bay and occasionally in the delta or out of the gate. her 8' beam cuts the water well and the tiller is very responsive. my only real question is how far up or down the coast do you take a cm 30? id be interested in hearing where and how far people have taken them.

Pros:
Cons:

I just bought my clipper marine 30 she hasn't been well looked after she has sat unattended for around 3 years no tarp and top hatch left open a bit!
The cabin floor needs replacing and the biggest problem is the Mast is broken in half! so I'm in search of a replacement mast!

The boat came with all sails loads of extras and the factory trailer.

Hull design is the rear galley and the rear outboard drop in! would have been nice to have the diesel option but for the price i paid i cant complain!

If anyone knows were i can get a replacement spar/mast for a CM30 please contact me.

Thank you

Mike
