Duncanson 30 Offshore

1988 Duncanson 30 Offshore now for sale with DBY Boat Sales.

Duncanson 30 Offshore from 1988 era built by Searle yachts was a well-respected club racer and has the medals to show for it.

She is a shorthanded performance yacht with a pleasant interior which is unlike most of the racer cruiser yachts of this era. A well-maintained Volvo Penta which has been regularly serviced and suggests low hours of use. A large collection of operating manuals and receipts are onboard which are all up to date. There is even the original advertising from Australian Yachting magazine.

The sails are all around 2010 and quite comprehensive as a starting package. The fractional rig is supported by swept back spreaders and all sail control lines are led aft to a generous sized cockpit.

Standing rigging was replaced in 2006 and some additional rig work has been done since then also.

The current owner of 12 years has kept her in good shape since his purchase and is reluctantly having to let her go due to injury reasons.

A perfect entry to twilight racing on a budget or simply a very nimble coastal cruiser on a shoestring. Her overall good appearance suggests that she has been well cared for and lightly raced.

Metho cooking, 12v refrigeration, tidy interior and priced to sell quickly.
