NEFAR is a classic 1962 Hinckley Sou'wester 30' beautifully kept and upgraded. Handlaid fiberglass hull and deck, bronze deck hardware, bright finished toerail, handrails, cockpit combing, and additional trim. Interior is varnished mahogany, teak, and painted surfaces. Prior to being purchased by current owner in October 2011 she was stored indoors and unused since 1987.
She has seen only light bay sailing since and has been yard maintained and stored indoors since her purchase. She is impeccably maintained and is in first class shape and upon Spring commissioning in sail away condition.

NEFAR is a true New England classic and a capable cruising yacht with interior accommodations approaching her larger sibling the Hinckley Pilot 36'.
I have sailed on this pocket yacht many times and think it would be a lower cost, roomier alternative to such daysailors as the Alerion 28' etc. with more accommodation, cruise ability, and with the Hinckley heritage, fit and finish.
