Peterson 30

Hi,

from what I can research on the net Doug Peterson designed two versions of the half tonner around 1978, one with an open transom and one with a closed stern, Cavalier Yachts NZ built the boat, if you search on sailboatdata.com it has the specs for the design

I took the boat for a first sail over the weekend and it performed well, in a 18 - 25 knot breeze we were hitting 6 - 7 knots consistently, not super fast but still handy, had a comfortable ride in 2 short 2 meter swells

regards
Chris
