1973 Elizabethan 30

Lymington, Hampshire


The Elizabethan 30 (or 9 metre) has become a bit of a classic, very much in the Contessa 32 vein. Designed by David Thomas as an IOC racer, these days they make lovely cruising boats or Thursday evening club racers. Moonshot was built in 1973 and, as can be seen from the photos, is in beautiful condition inside and out. 5 berths.14hp Beta engine from 2013 ( low hours ), windows replaced in 2015, unused berth cushions from 2016, young headlining and cabin flooring. New rig in 2017 and standing rigging in 2020. Wardrobe of young Sanders Sails, including fancy racing Main and Genoa. Would suit a Contessa 26 owner looking to go a little bigger and the Vendor would consider a part-exchange.
