We have a Baba 30 and love it. She''s totally over-built and very solid. Best of all, she''s a Perry boat! Bob Perry put a great deal of thought into his design. Great storage and all lockers are numbered. All through-hulls are labled and are of top quality. The workmanship is fantastic. Teak decks are not a problem. We''ve had no problems with leaks. She''s great to sail and gives my wife and I a very secure feeling at sea. We looked at all of the typical cruising candidates and chose a Baba 30.
