Construction

Sparkman & Stephens have been responsible for designing highly desirable, fast sailing yachts with beautiful lines that have stood the test of time and give as much pleasure today as they did when released to the yachting public many years ago.
This S&S 30 is no exception and if a fast, stable cruiser/racer is your vessel of choice then look no further. This yacht has been in the north east for the last 30+ years and has been lovingly maintained to a high standard by her present and previous custodians. The yacht has seen constant upgrade and modernisation whilst maintaining the pedigree and vision that the designers had for her.

Smart navy blue painted topsides and gel shielded hull below the waterline.
