The Rayvin 30 is a living proof that even even such a small cats can be true bluewater boats, seaworthy for all the challenges of a true adventurer. By words of owner (first and the only one) she holds 40 deg to the wind in flat water, 50 to 60 in rough. She did sailing in 50 to 60 knot winds without any difficulties.
Hull Material is epoxy glass with Kevlar/carbon fibre under the waterline and up the bows which makes her one of only 2 build in epoxy.
Her main features - saloon seats eight people comfortably, three deluxe cabins, galley up and incredible ease of sailing. What else does one need?
She is extremely well equipped for such a boat - please view her specs and equipment info. The owner showed a lot of love and well took care on her. He also has a small list of work that needs to be done before sailing.
No matter if you plan to sail around the world or if you would just like to spend a comfortable couple of months each year, you are getting a lovely, really capable boat that likes to sail.
