CS 30 Used Boat Review

If you're looking for a cruiser that balances comfort and speed, the CS 30 offers a small but mighty package for your coastal and offshore cruising dreams. Solid craftsmanship and practical details like a deep cockpit, roomy quarter berth and U-shape galley make for a cruiser with all of the thoughtfully designed essentials.

Bert Vermeer
As a coastal cruiser (and occasional racer), Bert Vermeer has sailed the coast of British Columbia for more than 40 years. With his wife Carey and daughter Nicky (and eventually granddaughter Natasha) in tow, Bert has gained an appreciation for the fabulous cruising grounds of the Canadian west coast. Based on his experience as a hands-on boater, he established a marine-based business after completing his police career. He now maintains, renovates and upgrades sail and power boats for local and non-resident owners in the off-season.

  1. We’re sailing a 1987 Hunter 31 sloop in Salem, MA and vicinity. It shares many of the features of CS 30, especially as we have also upgraded auxiliary engine, sails, furling, traveler, GPS, Steering pedestal, and other features. Nice boat.
