Would like others opinion on this 1972 Newport 30
Well,I would like to get some experienced sailors opinions on this boat. Providing the survey comes back good and I sail it for a few hours and see what I think, do you think from the photos and description of what the PO has done to it, it is worth $10,000-$11,000? Thanks! I meant a 1974 30-2.
What the PO has said---I have owned sunset for 10 years, with inside storage every year. I have done all maintenance and upgrades myself, bought a larger boat in Canada recently and need to sell this one. Hull Allgriped in 2010, deck epoxied and Allgriped 2009, Re-powered with 2cyl Yanmar diesel 2016, New Doyle sails in 2016, replaced tiller with Edson wheel and Raymarine 1000 auto helm. Interior rebuilt with native white cedar 20008, new cushions in cockpit 2009. 3 batteries newer with 1500 watt inverter, Large 40 lb Danforth on bow roller with 30 feet of 3/8 chain, Newer alcohol stove and new refig last year. 3 year old dodger like new. I spent last summer in the North Channel with this boat last summer and it handled the 1000 mile journey with ease and grace. We love this boat but need large to cruise further. I estimate have spent $15000 up grading this boat over 10 years. 2 year old custom Doyle main sail and 135 head sail on a Harken furler. This is a turnkey sail away boat. Spent 5 weeks in the North Channel last summer and Sunset did the cruise with ease.
