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 on the market, the nicest and best rigged. A big plus is this is a rare example with builder finished fiberglass decks. Call to see this listing today, located in Sales Tax free Rhode Island.

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 characteristics 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 actually sails for 30 foot boat with 25 foot waterline length and nearly 13,000 lb. displacement. When all three sails are up in 15 knots of breeze, lock the wheel, take a shower, make a sandwich and come back to the helm, she is sailing straight as an arrow (Of course having someone stand watch). 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.
