Broker's Comments

This was certainly a first for me. I can honestly admit to never having heard of a "Master 30" before, let alone having seen one.
But, what a revelation!
This has got to be the biggest 30 footer I have ever stepped aboard. The deck saloon is enormous and warm and dry even on the bitterly cold day that I viewed the boat. To actually have 4 cabins on a boat of this size is quite amazing as they are all of a useable, practical size even for my not insubstantial bulk.
This boat ticks a lot of the right boxes and will comfortably accomodate the biggest of sailing families. Give me a call to arrange a viewing and be prepared to be amazed like me.
