Well...they are different boats for one thing...made by different builders (Whitby vs. cape Dory) Another thing is the age...CD30's were built from the mid-70's to mid 80's as opposed to the early 60's to late 70's on the A30.
Fully restored...both are excellent ocean going boats but you should read up on the A30 by googling the owners association as there are lots of potential problems to be aware of during survey.
