Baba 30

Am considering the purchase of a Baba 30. Obviously I cruise,I don't race.

Am not likely to be sailing off shore but inland lakes. Does anyone have any knowledge of their performance in such conditions? I have heard conflicting accounts of their light air (5-9 knots) performance.

Re: Baba 30

There was one posted as for sale just yesterday: For Sale: Baba 30, Serious offshore cruiser - Cruisers & Sailing Forums

You could maybe PM LadyStardust and ask for some info?

Re: Baba 30

I have heard the same thing about light air performance, I mean it is a 12,500 lb. boat. If you are doing inland sailing, perhaps such a stout, offshore boat is not needed. What a beautiful, perfect example of a capable boat though.
