Newport 30, 1974, what do you think?

Another day, another boat to view. I'm looking for information on this Newport 30. From the year, 1974, I would guess it's a Mark II.

My use case is family cruising around Howe sound and gulf islands with hopefully many overnighters and maybe a longer trip. Perhaps we can convince another couple with a kid to cruise with us!

The Saltire is a reliable and comfortable coastal cruiser. She has given my partner and I endless amounts of joy over the last year and a bit that we have owned her. This boat is in very good shape for her age, getting a clean bill of health in the survey performed at the last haulout in April 2016 (when bottom paint and zincs were done).

The Saltire has room for 6 or 7 to sleep on short overnight trips (if there are couples involved or people who like to get cosy) with a double V-berth, convertible double dinette area, single (pretty much a double) berth/couch to starboard and a single berth in the starboard stern. Although 3-4 is a comfortable level for longer trips, we have had upwards of 10 on day cruises around English bay.

She is a very good sailor, we have been very happy with her performance in all weather conditions. With a new engine installed around 2006-2007 and having been lightly used since then, she is a Vancouver weekend-warrior's dream!

My partner and I spent 6 weeks on The Saltire last July/August sailing 1000 miles (return trip) to Hakai marine park near Bella Bella and the Alaskan panhandle. This was an incredible journey up the inside passage seeing a side of BC that not many people are fortunate enough to experience; The Saltire made it all possible and she could take you just as far.

All salmon fishing gear currently shown in the photos is included at the listing price only.

Moorage at Lynnwood Marina (under north side of Ironworkers bridge on the North Shore) is paid until 1st of July and is transferable to the new owner!

Re: Newport 30, 1974, what do you think?

Recent power.. a good thing.

Roomy but perhaps not as overall 'good' a boat as some of the other CL offerings right now.

You haven't given any feedback regarding the first boat. Are you just going to keep listing the 'boat of the day'?

Equipment on the boat is exceptional for this type and age. Easily exceed 5 figures adding everything on. Didn't see a price but that will be a big factor. These boats are available cheap in Cal though not with this boats equipment list. Capital built decent coastal cruisers. Not a boat to tackle Cape Horn but adequate for the inland passage.

If you have Newport specific questions there's a reasonably active Newport group on Facebook and a slightly less active Yahoo Group as well.

Re: Newport 30, 1974, what do you think?

Thank you all for your replies. My family and I were satisfied with the condition of the boat and we liked some of the extras (especially the central heating unit!)... so we bought this boat!

We took possession of it yesterday evening
