Broker's Comments

Together with the aid of two top Naval architect Gary Mull and Cuthbertson and Cassian of C&C Yachts, they formed a new and updated fleet of sailboats from a 20 ft day sailor to 41ft cruiser which were manufactured & built until 1984 at their plant in Harbor City, California. The current owners have enjoyed day sailing & Coastal cruising this Newport 30 MKIII with its shoal draft & comfortable accomodations is an idea boat for a couple or small family.
