Description: 1971 Contest 30. Heavily built and designed to handle the North Sea. Hull is solid fiberglass meaning it has no core to rot out. The hull is has no soft spots or weaknesses.
Engine is a volvo penta MD2 producing 25 HP. Runs perfectly and will give the boat 5.5 kts at 1800 RPM and burn .5 gallons an hour. 15 gallons total. 3 five gallon jerry cans on deck.
3 AGM batteries. All lights external and internal are LED.
Sails are in good shape. Main has three reefs. all reefing is done at the mast. New Stack Pack installed January of 2019. Head sail is on a roller furler (Furlex 200). Replaced sun protection on the jib May 2020. Jib sheets and furling lines are new. She has wheel steering with direct "rod" linkage to the rudder. The Hydrovane windvane can steer the boat via wind power and can also act as a emergency rudder. The raymarine autopilot can also connect to the Hydrovane adding the capability to hold a magnetic heading.
Interior is a mixture of teak floors and varnished wood. Upon entering the cabin the nav station with GPS/VFH/circuit breaker panel is to your right. the galley is to your left. The galley top was recently redone with butcher block and coated in clear epoxy. There was previously an alcohol stove however I took it out for more space. Another can easily be put in. There is one quarter berth and the side births extend for a bigger bed. The forward berth
easily sleeps two. The head is a chemical porta potty type. There is an icebox for food (no refridgeration).
I bought Star Dancer because I wanted a boat that was simple, reliable and sea worthy and she has proved to be all those things. while she lacks in some of the amenities of home you get the reward of keeping things simple which means less work. If you want a boat to take you across oceans safely, this is the one for you. She is ready to sail NOW. I am only selling because I am in the military and am getting transferred to Nevada. This is not your run of the mill massed produced 30 footer. This boat will take you places safely!
