1987 Nimble 30 yawl $16,900 Boston MA

I love this boat, but I'm retiring and it's time for me to downsize. This is a double-ended yawl designed by Ted Brewer. Only about two dozen were built. Very traditional looks with a modern hull design. Emily Hope has a keel centerboard so she draws 2' 10" with the board up and 5' 6" with the board down.

I installed a Beta Marine 16hp engine in 2015 and it has around 120 hours. I replaced the fuel tank and hot water heater at the same time. The sails are like new. In addition to installing the new engine, I've done a bunch of projects (like replacing three through-hulls and rebuilding the skylight) and installed new parts (like a new jib furler and a new rudder). All of the exterior teak has been cleaned and oiled. FYI the mizzen mast is currently in storage, but can easily be stepped by one or two people.

Until very recently, I was sure this was my "forever" boat so I invested time and money accordingly. The boat currently is on the hard at Savin Hill YC in Dorchester MA. You could launch the boat here for free and sail it away!

Please note: this will be an in-person transaction. Do not contact me with your scams with wiring funds or bank checks etc.

For more details (including an equipment list) and pictures here is a post on my blog.

Nice Bristol 35.5 behind...


I had a Nimble 20 I really enjoyed. Great boats. Ted Brewer actually owned a Nimble 30, had his first date with his wife on it. Write up this month in Good Old Boat magazine, available online for free.

That Bristol has been sitting there a while since the owner passed away. Another member of the yacht club bought it from the previous owner's widow. Lots of deferred maintenance. I haven't had a chance to look inside recently, but he had to remove lots of the interior due to rot. It'll be a great boat when he's done.

I had an email exchange with Mr. Brewer about the Nimble 30. He said he wishes he still had it. I read elsewhere that he sold it and bought a Nimble 20 (very different boat than the Nimble 30 BTW) and trailered it home to the PNW from Florida. Swore he'd never tow a boat again.

I saw that listing when we were looking and i was intrigued, being a fan of Nimble boats. But I knew my wife wouldnt go for the centerboard trunk/permanent drop leaf table so I passed on it. If it were up to me, I'd have definitely called you about it since it sounds like a great boat.

Mark, I posted your CL ad awhile back in the 'Under $30k boats' thread for you, before I knew you'd come and post it
