Pros:
Cons:

The boat was designed by McGruer as a comfortable cruising boat. Various rigs and keels were used. Very stiff and dry. Cockpit scuppers too low - water in cockpit under sail. Inexpensive boat that when updated with additional equipment makes a great cruiser/racer. Balsa core deck may have rot problems. Underrated boat.

Pros:
Cons:

The Grampian 30 is a very strong well build cruiser, not
fast but great in storms. You might notice that the gell coat might have tiny holes probably caused by a coal port.
The tiny holes can be removed with gell coat repair.
It is a non-fractional sloop (the jenny goes all the way up the mast). Sleeps 6, galley, head, tiller steering. The mainsheet is very neat, if used properly it has a preventor build in. Overall a good family cruiser, made cheap before
oil prices shyrocketed, this usually means that you have
very strong fiberglass.

Pros:
Cons:

Why this boat usually sells for half the cost of other 30 footers is a mystery to me. Strong. Mine has been to Bermuda twice and has seen some pretty foul weather. Very roomy for its size. Things to watch for: chainplate to wood bulkhead connection, soft core in decks, hinge pin assembly on center board version.

-----------------------------------
We sailed this boat from Alpena, Michigan to Port Clinton, Ohio about 15 years ago. It is located in Brand’s Marina and the yard is open for inspection prior to the auction. Our lifestyle has changed and the boat has been in outside storage for 6 years.
There are three items that need repair: Two wooden keel supports have delaminated and need replaced. I haven’t priced the labor but a motivated individual can find the materals and do the repair. I’ve included a picture to show the extent of damage.
I’ve always removed the cushions for winter storage, about 4 years ago I took them up to the boat for storage and they’ve deterioriated and need the original fabric replaced.
The port v-berth light (window) was removed for replacement and plastic has been taped to cover the hole. The ports are fogged from cleaning agents on the deck over the years and I was going to replace them. The light is inside with the boat.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The engine was properly winterized when it was put in storage and a tuneup was performed that year as well. The atomic 4 is original, I have an owner’s manual, and it has always started and been dependable. The bilge pump works and the bilge has never filled due to leaks or storms.
The gel coat is good for the age of the boat with a few nicks and some crazing. The boat was slightly grounded once in mud in the Portage river. It has never been beached or hard grounded. The bottom paint was applied when I took it out and has leached but could wait until a later season.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The specifications of the boat are listed further below, some of these boats have made transatlantic voyages and the boat was built to Lloyd of London standards. The standing rigging is sturdy and well built. I have had this boat out in all weather and felt confident with the boat's abilities. The sails, tiller, sheet lines, batteries,blue carpet and other misc gear are stored at my house in Bremen, Ohio about 4 hrs away.The aluminum mast is in the same boatyard as the boat.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The sails are in good condition. The G30 163 mainsail has 4 or 5 battens, There are 2 liteweight headsails and 2 larger headsails, a storm and a many colored spinnaker ( We called it the crayon box). Our favorite sail “ Peppermint Patty” has a 12 inch repaired rip. A couple sails are newer, a couple have 1/2 inch tears. The storage is paid up to date. Extended summer storage from May thru Nov is $534.00. The new owner will be responsible for any storage fees 30 days after the end of the auction. Complete payment is expected in 15 days and the title will transfer when payment is received. I will transport all boat related gear from my house to the boat unless the new owner prefers to come pick it up. Wooden boat cradle is included with sale. Email me and I'll be happy to answer any questions about this sailboat.
