I have been around here for years. Almost 3 years ago I bought my first boat
. Despite all the reading I had done before the purchase
on how to buy a boat
in the end I followed my gut and bought the second boat I looked at. She is a 1983 Custom 30 built in Western Australia
. That is pretty much all I know. The boat was in good condition as I did not want a project
boat (I had just finished renovating the house for 9 months and had enough of hard physical Labour, at least for a while). I am only the third owner and the previous owner bought her after retirement
from his navigator job in the Navy
. He took really good care of her but she needed upgrades and I was on a steep learning
curve. Still am - of course. She has a 2003 28hp 3 cylinder Volvo
which I know now better than I had planned.
Anyway, does anyone know more about the yacht, designer
and specs? I know the incredible braintrust this site is. Thanks for reading thus far!
