The particular boat in your link does look nice, but check those portlights for leaks...lots of water staining on the wood.

This one:

1972 Yankee Sparkman and Stephens Design Sail Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

or this one:

1988 Olson / Ericson 911 SE Sail Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com


For cruising only, the former.
For racing and cruising, the latter. (The boat will look much more inviting with cushions!)

Re: Comfortable, Fast, 30 feet

S2 9.1 Hands down. the more I sail my boat the more impressed i am with it. After 4 years I am still discovering the virtues of this strong boat which sails high and fast and moves in light air. I have sailed it to bermuda and back, and up and down our East coast several times from New Jersey to Maine in all kinds of weather and waves. It is very stable down wind. If I thought there might be an achilles heel it would be the transom hung rudder. This is easily solved by replacing the pintles with a single rod axle.

Also, C&Cs. S2 would also be high on my list. Depending on where you live, an Catalina 30 tall rig might be worth a look.

A couple Tartan 30s were for sale for $5K around NYC this summer - though I imagine that boats in Hawaii might be much more expensive.

Resurrected a pretty old thread here.

Nevertheless, the big advantage to a transom hung rudder is the ability to carry some type of spare or repair to do offshore. Tear off any keel or skeg hung or spade and your first worry is stopping any flooding that may come through the post/linkage. Then your remedy would have to be some jerry-rigged emergency system.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
