There was an article in Good Old Boat magazine about the Yamaha sailboats recently.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Made in Japan, by same company that supplies motorcycles etc, "STILL" being made in Japan, but they sell all they can build in eastern asia. There is a 37 across from me, talking with the owner a few weeks back, I seem to recall there being a forum like this for Yamaha owners. If I see him, I will ask what the addy is. He has found 3 of 5 boat owners for his boat, being as only 5 were made, that is doing pretty good at the yamaha forum owners group.

The Yamahas all have some nice touches, - recessed genoa tracks, clever cabinetry etc. The 30 has good volume for its size, excellent headroom, but is deemed slowish.

Two models were produced, the earlier ones had the engine under the Vberth, with obviously extensive prop shaft/bearings etc. I think the idea was to promote the then-favorable bow down trim for IOR measurement. Of course all the weight is in the wrong place. Sometime along in production they changed to a more conventional under-companionway configuration.

The forward engine models are less popular and less costly today.
