Re: anyone know about Sagitta?

The Westsail is a well built boat, just not very nimble thats all.

rounding up.
My last boat was an Endeavour 32 and she was decent; but not
sticking in and sliding like the Sagitta. The Endeavour drew 4'2" and the
Sagitta almost 5' better rudder control as well.
A true blue water pocket cruiser.
And not a heavy slug like the westsail 32 either. amazing really.

That's not a very nice thing to say. And on your sixth post.

Re: anyone know about Sagitta?

I am presently re-fitting my Sagitta 30 down here in Texas and have plans to sail her back to Denmark to sell. She is on a trailer that I customized to tow down from SF where I bought her several years ago. Contact me if you are interested, she can be towed or sailed anywhere.

YARDPRO We have hull # 26

we have had ours almost a year now and have gotten to know her pretty well.

i sailed when i was a kid, but then motorboated for 30 years... now have fallen back into sailing so i have nothing to compare the sagitta to.

We have had it out in 20 knott winds in the ocean with 6 foot seas and it handled it flawlessly, no pounding, or getting wet....

we really have grown to love ours....

i would like to know how it compares to others of it's size.

sagitta 30

I just purchased hull #3 sagitta 30; I think there were only about 40 built in
the sixties and maybe a few more built later in the seventies. more of a custom production, they have a cult following around the North Sea.
I am a seasoned sailboat owner and this boat is incredible loves a fresh
breeze and a choppy sea-a dry ride

Yellowchair
yes

I was looking at the one in San Fransisco Bay with a yellow hull. It's still for sale at what appears to be a very good price. I would probably buy it now if I hadn't already found my boat (a Tyler Twister).

Tree_hugger Yardpro: Congrats! I have a Sagitta-30, hull number 33. She has been mine for 5 or 6 years. Home port Sitka, Alaska.

Yellowchair: It that the yellow hull one in California? I visited her a couple years back, talked with the owner. She used to have a black hull when Bill had her.

In general... well built, solid old-school fiberglass. Basic European sensible design. She is much better a sailboat than I am a sailor, very forgiving. I have been living aboard for several years. Summers roaming SE AK fjords.

Checkout the "yachtdatabase" website, select "owners contacts", go to "S" and you will find eight Sagitta-30 owner contacts.
