REDUCED, WILL LOOK AT ANY OFFER, MUST SELL

AMAZING BOAT, Perhaps the most surprising 30-foot sailboat ever designed.  The Chance 30 - 30 represents the exceptional thinking of Britton Chance, Jr. one of Americas foremost yacht designers. It incorporates many of the design features that proved successful in Mr. Chance's work on the victorious Americas Cup, Intrepid. Mr. Chance was also on the design team of Stars And Stripes the Americas Cup winner in Australia 1987. The quality of the design is complemented by the fact that the Chance 30-30 was built by the Allied Boat Co. whose hallmark was quality workmanship. There is no better testimonial to a boats seaworthiness and safety (see Stories). Now that Allied has proven without question the great performance of this boat, it concentrated on producing the finest quality interior found in any boat her size and comparable to the famous Allied interiors found in larger Allied Yachts.

 

  

 

THE CHANCE 30 - 30 OFFERS AMAZING COMFORT FOR CRUISING The Chance 30 - 30 has a 10 foot beam and 6'3" headroom, her cockpit is large enough to accommodate an entire racing crew and offers the cruising couple ample space for sunning and relaxing. It also offers great storage capacity with 2 huge Lazerette's for many sails, covers, blocks, handles, etc..

Her fully equipped galley is on the port side with a large and very well insulated icebox with refrigeration, plus food and utensil storage. Aft is a stainless steel two burner stove with an oven.  Opposite the galley is an enormous quarter berth with storage underneath. At the foot is a 36X24 chart table and electronics center with storage underneath.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 In the main cabin there are port and starboard berths outboard of which there are six lockers with fine teak covers, a table is adjacent to the port berth providing ample room for 6 people to eat in comfort.

On the starboard side is a large vanity and sink with linen lockers outboard. 

Convenient grab rails are standard in the main cabin and the whole cabin can be easily ventilated by large aluminum hatch forward, and 6 opening ports with screens.
