“Club Shamrock” design 30ft cruiser/racer sailing yacht for sale. Freshly antifouled, afloat and ready to go sailing at Monkstown, Co. Cork.
Designed by the famous Ron Holland and built in 1979 at the South Coast Boatyard in Rochestown, Co. Cork this is the very last of the versatile and super-strong “Shamrock” yachts.
The Shamrock’s hull shape, along with a 1,410 Kg lead/antimony fin keel, a highly efficient spade rudder and a great sloop rig, gives a truly scintillating and pure sailing experience.
But this yacht also has a fully reconditioned and super-reliable 13Hp Volvo Penta diesel engine which was refitted along with a new gearbox, new cutless bearing and new prop. This engine has never failed to start or missed a beat in our eight years of ownership. So, if you just want to pootle about under motor trolling lines for mackerel…and learn to sail later…well, this could also be a good prospect – it is a whole lot of boat for the money.
Originally the “Shamrocks” were primarily intended for racing to the IOR “Half-Ton” rule. When the racing is over the fact that the “Club” Shamrocks can switch to family-friendly “cruiser” mode and head off West for the holidays is a great boon.
Ron Holland successfully modified the original design by fitting an extended coachroof which gives surprisingly good cabin space for a thirty footer, with berths for six. Six can also dine comfortably in the teak-lined cabin.
The “Clubs” also have Edson pedestal wheel steering, which gives a lot more “free” seating room in the cockpit for visitors and crew than a swinging tiller does.
This is an heirloom quality yacht with many decades of useful life ahead of her, whether racing, cruising or day-sailing or all three.
Full inventory with lots of sails, spinnaker, VHF radio, new echo-sounder, new stove, new compass, new inflatable dinghy, new heads etc, etc… More details on the Apollo Duck website; and/or contact vendor for more details.
