Before bidding please go check it out at Holiday Harbor in Wilmington slip 82 Boat does not come with outboard and will require long shaft outboard engine or inboard engine From the 1960s to the late '80s, California-based Ericson Yachts produced thousands of speedy, efficient sailboats. One of the first models to emerge was this one; the Ericson 30, classic model designed by the legendary Bruce King. This beauty is ready to sail to the island today! little about her:
Touted as racer/cruiser, the E30 raced successfully under the C.C.A. rule. How? Glad you asked! The Ericson 30's high bow accomanied by sheer, balanced overhangs are complemented by teak toerails and the tall, rounded coachroof that sweeps upward -- just forward of the comfortable cockpit.
Wide side decks make it easy to move forward inside the shrouds, and it has long, swept-back fin keel containing 3,000 pounds of encapsulated lead ballast that works seamlessly with the rudder, hung on partial skeg to keep the boat balanced on all points of sail. At 30 feet, the classic model is purposely shorter than typical models of today's standards, making big overlapping jibs necessary for light airs. The tiller head is near the middle of the cockpit sole, and with the traveler located on the small aft deck and well-placed winches. Solo sailor? This makes the the boat very convenient to singlehand!
Down below, she offers 6-foot-2-inch headroom in beautiful wood interior, with bulkheads bonded to the hull. one-piece fiberglass headliner brightens the cabin, providing structural support, and 10 fixed ports admit lots of light, while large forward hatch provides ventilation. The galley is at the foot of the removable companionway steps, with two-burner alcohol stove and oven (in need of some light repairs) to port, along with deep sink and icebox to starboard to keep your frosty beverages cool. Speaking of beverages...
In the saloon, long settee and bookshelf face U-shaped dinette. Both convert to large sleeping berths, so you'll never have to sleep alone! Forward of the main bulkhead is hanging locker for storage, and opposite is small, well-appointed head (the door of which also functions to seperate the V-berth from the rest of the interior). The split V-berth sits high, above the stainless-steel water tank, the 10-gallon plastic holding tank, and stowage.
Additionally, this magnificent boat, one of only 150 built between 1966 and 1970, comes equipped with: • Brand new bluetooth radio for listening to music with speakers throughout the inside and outside of boat • Old VHF radio and newish handheld radio • danforth and alot of chain and rope • Genoa jib few others.
