The Elizabethan range has long been a desirable and well admired range of boats. This Elizabethan 30 is no exception and was offered to the yachting public in 1968 until the mid 1970's. She is the ultimate cruiser/racer and was initially offered to compete in the RORC half tonner class.
As well as being quick, in the right hands of course, she offers good accomodation and an excellent sailing cockpit for those who want to go afloat for extended periods of time but want an element of comfort when doing so. This is amply covered by her Auto Steer wind vane self steer, her Taylors paraffin cabin heating, comfortable berths and decent galley with oven.
Standing rigging was replaced in 2013 and her sail wardrobe includes a decent main and genoa. both were valeted and checked by local Sail maker Douthwaites including a new UV strip.
