still looking for 30-35 ft boat- Fraser?


I am still looking hard for a boat under 35 ft for the Chesapeake Bay. I saw an S2 11 center cockpit and an aft model- I liked them both. They are a nice boat, they draw 5'6'' and seem to be a good buy on account of the draft not being as desirable to most buyers.

I saw a Fraser 30 too(tall cabin) - very intriguing, draft 4'4''.... anyone familiar with this boat?

All 3 boats were in very nice shape, and I think it is going to be one of those 3---

Thanks for comments! It's nice to know I am not alone in this boat obsession.

Any comments welcome

Frasers were made near Vancouver B.C. by the DeKleer Brothers. They made some 30's, 41's, 42's, a few 50-somethings and some Endurance 36's. They are well made boats but many had owner finished interiors, which varies greatly. According to Airie DeKleer, one of the builders, when the big storm hit Cabo back in the 80's, of the few boats that were salvaged off the beach, two of them were built by him. There is a link to our Fraser 41 in my user profile.

I own and sail an S2 11.OA on the Chesapeake. I have the shoal draft version that draws 4' 8". Thought you might like to know that.

Believe I bought the Fraser you saw. Of course I went and tore a tendon in my foot the day before I saw her and spent most of the summer watching as she rode up and down on the tide. Roll on spring!

Another Steele? This place is going downhill fast...

Life is too short to sail ugly boats.
