Wooden Ships Comments on this Bermuda 30
The Bermuda 30 was an enlargement of the more well known Herreshoff H28 design and is a superbly comfortable and easily handled family cruising boat. This yacht was built in 1967 by the Cheoy Lee Shipyard, Hong Kong, using what was at the time the new material of Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP).
Sadly now an executor sale, we have full ownership details and history back to her launch and the boat has been checked and prepared as well as possible for a new owner to take her on. She sat for a couple of years unattended and as such should now be considered a project, however the boat has been cleaned and tidied and due to the regular care and attention she received in the past she appears to be in a relatively good state. Very well equipped with gear including all over winter covers, dinghy and outboard, safety equipment and nav gear. A sensibly project yacht with potential to be a superb family cruising boat.
