Baba 30

I'm going to check out a Baba 30 for sale, am I nuts?
Anyone with direct experience owning a Baba 30?
Lots of teak ?
Volvo diesel ?
More teak ?
Lots of new gear though: running rigging, standing rigging, newer sails, alum. spars , new fuel and water tanks, some other gack!

What can you tell me, pro and con about these little gals?
Any advice, opinions, stories appreciated

Chuck:
I hope you like sanding and varnishing.
The Baba 30 will surprise you with its performance. It sails quite well.
There were some early problems with engine mounts but I would asume that time has cured that on this boat.

A bricklayer from Baltimore did a single handed circumnavigation on his.

Chuck,
There's a bloke over at Cruising Anarchy by the name of 'Sonadora' who owns a B30 which he is currently restoring. Worthwhile visiting the thread.

Hey Mr Perry .... fellow with the same name as yours designed the Baba. You any relation ?

Seriously though they are lovely boats. The B40 PH was high on our list of desirables.

Yes, I know that guy. Charming fellow if you catch him on the right day.
But from personal experience I can tell you those days are few and far between.

I agree. Go so SA/CA and look up Sonadora's thread on rebuilding his Baba 30. He knows the boat well.

Chuck, are you looking at the one in Seattle by chance? If so, it looks nice, needs a bit of bright work love if you have patience, time, or the check book for that sort of thing. \

.... you cant really go wrong with a Baba 30.....always going to hold its resale value. Consider
a Tashiba 31 if you can find one in your area and price range. A little stiffer boat, and a little
faster. Nows the chance to beat down the price....economy is bad , etc. etc. = )

happy sailing

Never sailed one, but to my untrained eyes, it's one of the most beautiful boats ever designed. It's our dream boat; maybe someday when we have a bit more money.

Baba 30

We are jealous. The Baba 30 is probably our favorite boat on our current short list. Beautiful, beautiful boat.
