Grampian 30

Hello Dumbguy?
Have you considered a Grampian 30? My boat is a 1973 and it does everything I want it to do. It sails to our local Tampa bay phrf rating of 177,(faster than a J-24 in most conditions), the boat has sailed to bermuda, mexico, venezuala, the bahamas and it still keeps going. There is a relatively strong owners group on yahoo groups. You can pick these boats up fairly reasonably priced turnkey and you can not kill these babies.
On our way to long boat key earlier this year we were hitting 9.5Kts surfing a 9' swell in about 25 knots true.

Peace,
Briggs

How about a brand new boat that can sail the pants off anything in its class and sleeps four comfortably, is huge down below with all the bells and whistles, including a beer cooler, including sails and a retractable six foot keel for 50k?

Here are a couple local options...


27" CS 1977 25K (4 hrs away)
http://www.sunnybrookyachts.com/core...=syb&&ywo=syb&
27" C&C 1986 32.5 K (4 Hrs away)
http://www.sunnybrookyachts.com/core...=syb&&ywo=syb&
If you can get the name of the CS 27, then go to the CS Owners Association - CSOA Group at Yahoo - and look around to see if you can gather any of its history. You will also find a lot of general information about them there. It is definitely at the upper end of the going prices for the boat. But they are good boats.

Based on the information in the C&C 27 write-up - I think that it is overpriced at listing. Seems that the owner is wanting to recoup the expenditure he made on the new engine. Not a lot of other upgrades mentioned. A very common issue with these boats is delamination of the decks. Find out if and when it was recored, and if so, what core material was used.

I am still going to suggest that you contact a few Ontario boat owners and take a drive up here to look at what's available, for what price. The fall is a good time to do this, as boats will start getting cheaper in a couple of weeks from now.

This is a GREAT boat - seaworthy, fairly fast and very roomy:

Aloha 28 1978

I think I lucked into a good starter boat. I had never heard of Express Yachting, which was made in Canada in the 80's, but ended up buying an Express 30. It had fairly good cruising accomodations (propane stove/oven, icebox, enclosed head, comfortable sleeping for 5 with the quarterberth model), but also had a double spreader rod rig, 5.5 foot lead keel, and full racing rig. We raced it on the Chesapeake for 5 years where it had a PHRF rating of 144, and did fairly well. By the end of that time we were on the podium most of the time; the rating is very "fair" for this boat. And being a 30 foot boat the sails were fairly affordable. My wife wanted a bigger boat, so we splurged for a C&C 110 (which on the Chesapeake has the rediculous PHRF rating of 60). But I still miss my old Express 30. If you can find one, get it.
