Description: 1986 Baba 30 built at the famous Ta Shing boatyard. This boat is among the last few (of the 170 total) Baba 30s made making her the newest baba 30 on the market today and in my opinion the nicest and best rigged. She currently resides up north in the Ocean State thus she is lightly used a few months a year. The remaining months she is professionally stored under cover at the marina. This go anywhere sailboat has spent all her days in the new england area used very lighty. I have owned and improved her over the past 7 years, before me a doctor owned her who eventually sold her due to lack of use. I am only selling because my family has doubled in size and now i want the Baba 40. Last summer we took her on our longest voyage; from Rhode Island, out around Nantucket and up to Maine. We could not have been any happier with her sailing characteristic and comfort of ride. She heaves too like a dream with double reefed main and a backed staysail. Without towing that inflatable dinghy behind her we were really suprised how well she pointed into the wind and how fast she she actually sails for 30 boat with 25 LWL and nearly 13,000lb displacement. When all three originally sized sails are out in around 15kts, lock the wheel, take a shower, make a sandwich, drink a beer, and come back to the helm, she is sailing straight as an arrow. Though sails have been upgraded, the original dimensions have not been altered so as to not interfere with the designed balance of the rig. We purchased this boat with intent of long distance cruising in mind. Now that she is finally rigged and ready to go (two kids latter) i need a bigger Baba!
