Designed as a smaller version of the Nicholson 31, the Halmatic 30 is in very much the same style - a heavy displacement long-keeler with a high ballast ratio. They are strongly built and have an excellent reputation as a serious seagoing yacht. This one looks very nice indeed and has only had one owner from new and is laid ashore every winter.
The cockpit is selfdraining and has seating with tiller steering, three stowage lockers with teak tops.

Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
What a fabulous find - One owner from new - this sailing boat looks as if she has been loved over the years. Halmatic are a long-established yacht and shipbuilder, and for many years moulded the hulls for the Nicholson range of yachts. Now part of Vosper Thorneycroft, Halmatic are still in business, although they now mostly build much larger craft - from naval vessels to superyachts
Designed for Halmatic by John Sharp, the Halmatic 30 was built from the late 1970s to the mid 1980s. The design is in many ways similar to the Nicholson 31. About 200 Halmatic 30s were built in total. This sailing yacht is a very good example and she benefits from re-rigged 2009 and had a new engine installed in 2005. Ideal for seasoned sailors or new sailors alike due to her sound sea keeping properties.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
