Broker's Comments

The Steadfast 30 is a surprisingly spacious motor/sailer, with good sailing characteristics. Built to last, this version has been well maintained and equipped and therefore presents as an attractive, tidy, capable and seaworthy cruiser.

The cockpit is semi enclosed, the galley separate from the saloon and there is accommodation for six, in three separate cabins. The owner's cabin has a spacious double berth, seat and stowage, which is complemented by a comfortable aft cabin, with two singles. The heads are spacious and comfortable to use and the saloon very much a snug environment for six people to relax in comfort and enjoy the plush upholstery.

The exterior and particularly interior of this boat are uniquely complemented by the outstanding craftsmanship of the woodwork refit this boat has had. The previous owner was a master craftsman and completely rebuilt and refitted the majority of woodwork to an exquisite standard, with good materials.

When I visited this boat I found her to be solid, dry, warm and full of character, quality and cruising potential. This boat would suit anybody looking for a capable, comfortable cruiser, including blue water sailing and live-aboard capability. This is an attractive all round package and the boat ready to sail.

These boat details are subject to contract.
