Britton Chance 33-30

Does anyone know anything about a Britton Chance 33-30? Boat was supposedly built in Germany. I can't find a thing on the web on the boat, but the info on Chance the man is spotty. I found one for sale at a good price, and would use for cruising offshore and possibly Bluewater. I would appreciate any info if available.

CHANCE 30-30 Sailboat details on sailboatdata.com

There is no mention of a 33-30. Could it be a typo and it's in fact a 30-30?

allied 30-30

the 30-30 is an allied boat. this one had a more limited run and was made in germany, definitely 33-30. i checked sailboatdata first. I tried all the internet research possible first before turning here. I'm hoping that someone may have firsthand experience or know Britton personally or had a friend who knew something abot her. A very limited knowledge base for this type of boat ergo the lack of demand. Supposedly, Britton was a quirky designer with as many failures as successes.

The hull in your pictures is like a Chance OS1, the house looks different. The OS1 is a wonderful boat even if you have to pay attention down wind. I know an OS1 did well in 5-6 meter seas, 1 meter cross chop- no stuttering or jerking. I was pleased.

32-30?

Waquiez built some Chance 32-30's but that was France(?). Paceship built some too. They had more bustle pinch than the 33' os1, can't see that in your pictures...bet you'd like the boat either way. Good going.

Chance 32/28

I know this particular boat well . . . have owned one for several years. Manufactured by Paceship in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia from 1972-74. I believe they built a total of 42. Another 20 built in France by Wauquiez. A Scottish Yard (Robertson's?) also licensed the design but I've never been able to find any information on any being built there.

The Paceship Website has lots of information, pictures, and several owners websites (including mine). There is even an original sales brochure which you can download from the site.
