Newport 30 tiller replacement

Hey gents, I hope life is good.

I just recently bought Newport 30. Great boat for the money paid.
The original tiller was broken, and was replaced with the makeshift one by prior owner. Now I want to install the replacement tiller.
I have seen several tillers fairly cheap on defender, I am just not sure what size would be appropriate.

Since the tiller bushing is flushed with the deck(bottom of the cockpit), I want to buy tiller that has upcurve in the end- similar to the one on defender site.


Still the question is what specs am I looking for when it comes to getting tiller for Newport30.

Thank you, gents

Re: Newport 30 tiller replacement

I had a custom tiller built for my Newport 30. I put in a huge arc, so that the tiller could get over the cockpit benches. There is a guy in LA that does this for about 100$. I don't remember his name, but I was recommended to him by the guys at Downwind Marine (a local sail shop in San Diego). He builds stuff for them.
Really pretty - mahogany and Oak - very strong.

Re: Newport 30 tiller replacement

carbon fiber is not a bad idea - if you can find one for a reasonable price

You do realize that this is a 4 year old thread. I'm guessing the OP found a tiller quite some time ago.
