Defiance 30 Cruiser-Racer

NOW SOLD. This Defiance 30 is solidly built in GRP to the classic Sparkman and Stephens half ton design. A great choice to run around the buoys as a club racer or twilighter, they also enjoy good stability and sea worthiness so you can sail offshore with confidence in any weather. 

This late built and well maintained Defiance 30 was launched in 1987 and is maintained in ready to go condition. She sleeps 5 in her bright and cheery interior with a clever folding dinette table, good headroom, a galley and an enclosed toilet, all you need for fun weekends away or overnighting. 

She has a good wardrobe of quality sails with a fully battened dacron mainsail with a boom bag and lazy jacks, four headsails, a Furlex furler and a spinnaker. She was fully re-rigged with new stainless steel wire in 2014. There is a suite of Raymarine electronics plus an Icom VHF radio transceiver and a GPS. Her cockpit is well protected by a custom spray dodger. 

This yacht is powered by a regularly serviced and economical Yanmar 20hp diesel with Saildrive and a 2 blade folding propeller. This engine was installed new in 2002 and has just 750 hours running time. 

Slipped, anti-fouled and polished in May 2019, she is looking great and is ready to sail away on new adventures.

This is definitely one of the better presented and equipped Defiance 30s we have seen. For further information or to make arrangements to inspect her at Sandringham, please contact Chris Furey on 0410 551 977 or complete the online enquiry form
