THIS IS THE ORIGINAL! SUPERBLY BUILT AND THEN SUPERBLY RE-FITTED!
ITS ONE FOR THE CONNOISSEUR WHO APPRECIATES QUALITY COMBINED WITH HISTORY AND A REAL WOW FACTOR!
The S&S 30 Defiance is renowned for its excellent sailing ability and has remained a popular and capable cruiser/racer. This vessel was launched as the original S&S 30, and proved to be so successful, that her sister-ship was used to make the plug for the famous S&S 30 defiance production class! With such a history and pedigree, the current owner undertook a complete refit of the vessel which was completed in 2018 to not only restore the vessel to its former glory, but also to further improve its performance. This major refit included: A NEW 2018 VETUS 27HP DIESEL ENGINE, NEW FUEL TANK AND FUEL LINES, NEW MAST, STANDING AND RUNNING RIGGING, COMPLETE 12V REWIRE WITH QUALITY BATTERIES AND SWITCHBOARD, NEW VECTRAN MAINSAIL AND TWO HEADSAILS, A FULL RESPRAY OF THE VESSEL INCLUDING TOPSIDES AND DECK, the list goes on! This vessel really has had no stone left un-turned and presents like a brand new yacht! Whether you want cruise or race this vessel has the performance, capability, and comfort to do it all in style! With its exceptional build quality and unique history, it will turn heads where ever you pull into port!

Stepping inside, the stunning cedar strip planked hull has been superbly clear coated. The timber gives a warm and traditional ambience through out. The saloon has seating for 6 in comfort, and there is accommodation for 5 including two in the forepeak, two settee berths, and a pilot berth aft. The galley is to port and features a camping gas stove, stink with fresh water, icebox, and good storage. Forward is the navigation area complete with VHF Radio with AIS, GPS, and traditional clock and barometer.

On deck, the spacious cockpit is well set up for easy sailing. There is a Raymarine depth/speed/log display and compass opposite. The quality self tailing primary winches and mainsheet are in easy reach of the tiller, ideal for sailing short handed. With its excellent ballast ratio, the S&S 30 design continues to be very competitive as a social racer, whilst having the safety and stability for easy cruising.

This vessel is powered by the NEW in 2018 Vetus 27HP Diesel Engine. This has only 160 hours on the clock! There is excellent access to the engine for easy servicing, and it provides comfortable cruising at 5 to 6 knots.

With its stunning light blue hull, exceptional quality, and complete refit, this vessel really is quite unique! Ideal as a local cruiser and twilight racer it is sure to impress on inspection. For more information please call John Radonic on 0459322862 or Jo Breen on 0432031100.
