The Joubert 30 . . .

... Anyone have any experience with this design - especially in steel? Pros, cons, noted strengths or famous defects?

Regards to all,

G2L

I have not sailed on a Currawong but have researched other Joubert boats. Joubert designed boats for blokes, boats that are solid, reasonably fast but ultimately seaworthy.
Sydney to Hobart no probelms.
Lack of a companionway hatch is seen as a fault by some.
Tell us what you want to use it for.

Never seen one in steel.

Ken,

Thanks. Gonna cruise it coastwise, for a few days to a month or two at a time. Sounds like she should hold up fine. My guess is that she's a home build. And, from what I have seen, she's gonna need lots of work.

Keep in touch,

G2L

Coastal cruising for 1-2 people are well within the capability of this design (assuming it is the Currawong). Things to look at would be tankage both water a fuel.

Not sure why you would go steel unless it is a price issue. There are a few currawongs around but they start at the $40K mark.

PM your budget I might know of a good deal for you - especially if you want to get your hands dirty.
