Re: Sagitta 30

OK, these boats were built to "play" in the North Sea, worth re-fitting and sailing anywhere; check your rudder for old repairs, very common on these to get the rudders smacked around in marinas etc. also check the gudgeon straps that secure the rudder, they can get crevice corrosion, easy to have steel shop make new ones, I pulled all my chainplates and made new ones out of titanium, by the way, I have sailed mine in open water with plenty of wind and it is a very intoxicating ride!

Re: Sagitta 30

Sorry... hit the wrong key... it's hull #4, or at least that's what the prior owner told me. I will check the paper work that came with the boat to verify. The boat was built in 1964. The construction on these boats is amazing. It's still in great shape this many years later. It had the name Sea Poppy at one time, but I don't know if that's the original name or not. I have no idea who sailed it across the Atlantic, or how many owners it has had. Very excited to be restoring it.

Re: Sagitta 30

Where did you find your hull#?, did you get the Lloyd's of London insurance certification for your hull? When these boats were being built at the Royal Shipyard in Denmark the Lloyd's people came out and inspected the construction process of the hulls and then certified them and issued original certificates per hull; something you may want to check?
I have hull #3 out here in Texas.

Re: Sagitta 30

I just purchased Sagitta 30 hull #3. I live in Boston, MA. I will be working on her over the next while. I had her lifted into my backyard next to my workshop. I plan to do a complete refit, and then launch her for some extended cruising.

Re: Sagitta 30

I will sell her here in the U.S., if someone want the boat; I have here on a custom built trailer, so I can deliver the boat anywhere.

Re: Sagitta 30

you can go to the Sagitta 30 owners page and she is the yellow one, it says previously owned in Oxnard, then Jacob bought her and sailed her up to SF and that is where I found and bought her and then trailered her down to Texas

Re: Sagitta 30

Do you have any photos? i'd love to see her again!

Re: Sagitta 30

That is probably hull #3 which stayed in Oxnard for years and then was sailed to the SF bay area; I purchase her three years ago and brought her to Texas for a complete refit, and then she will be sailed back to Denmark and sold. Well built and simple.

Re: Sagitta 30

My family owned a 30' Sagitta named Helena when i was a kid. We sailed around San Diego and up to SF and back. It was a sweet boat and i'd be curious if anyone knows if it's still afloat and where she ended up. My dad remembers selling her out of Ventura Harbor in the late 70's.
