Newport 30 Mk3
Gary Mull the designer of the original Newport 30, changed the Mk3 to be more cruiser oriented. So it has wheel steering, a revised sailplan and an interior more suited to passage making than racing. But these changes don't make the Mk3, slow as they're popular boats within the handicap racing fleet.
"DONANDREW" has been looked after by its current owner with a few upgrades in 2015, including replacing the VHF, Depth sounder, Speed indicator, stereo system, speakers and new head-stay.
The boat comes with a refrigerator, hot and cold pressurized fresh water, enclosed shower within the heads, and dodger with bimini among other needed items to make it a worthwhile little cruising boat.
The interior layout consists of a V berth forward, with ample storage beneath it.
Aft of this and to port is the manual marine head, shower cubicle which also has a wash hand basin, storage cupboards and an opening port-light. To starboard is a hanging locker, with additional storage.
Mounted to the aft face of the main bulkhead is a fold up dinette table, with an L shaped settee to port and seating to starboard which doubles up as a berth.
The galley has a U shape layout with the work surface facing forward, Norcold AC/DC refrigerator to port and double drain stainless sinks aft. There is a portable LPG stove which may also be used outdoors. Ample storage with drawers and cupboards.
A pilot berth is tucked away to the starboard quarter, which also is the seating for the chart table.
The interior is finished in oiled and varnished teak and has a teak/holly cabin sole, which is need of refinishing. The upholstery used for the saloon is similar to a microfiber fabric.
The saloon portlights are large which allow in much light, two of which can be opened. There is an over head hatch both in the saloon and the fore cabin for additional access and air.
