1985 Halmatic 30 MkII £18,500
The Halmatic 30 MkII is a long-keeled offshore cruising yacht with well-mannered performance and the ability to handle the very worst weather. Easily handled by one or two, these traditionally styled yachts have a surprisingly spacious layout below, with excellent headroom and plentiful stowage. This yacht was sailed single-handed around Britain in 2014. This good example has an in-mast main and furling headsail for easy sail handling and has been well maintained and continually upgraded and is presented for sale in really nice condition. This yacht was built in 1984 and used as a demonstrator in 1985 by Halmatic before being sold to the first owner in 1986.
