S30 cruising square metre boat Chichester

Swede 55 has two smaller sisters, the Jubilee S40 and S30 cruising variants of the classy square metre boat. Here is an opportunity to buy a well-kept and well-equipped S30. Comprehensive sailing wardrobe with several light wind sails for Lake Constance.

Dark blue hull with teak deck. Extensive refit by reputable Lake Constance yard in 2003: superstructure painted white, teak deck. A pleasure to sail and to look at. Thanks to the low weight, headsail furling system and handy mainsail, easy to sail alone or by two. Easy transport/change of location thanks to 2.50 m width.

A sporty and elegant boat with a comfortable and safe centre cockpit. Headroom in the companionway, two berths forward, two in the saloon, two in the aft cabin. Ideal for a couple with occasional guests or the family. Swedish quality shipyard construction for the archipelago: Robust, well proven and grounded boat. Stylishly preserved, unmodified and class-compliant boat with original first-hand measurement certificate.
