PLEASE NOTE – This is the sale of a damaged boatThe Hummingbird 30 was Designed by David Thomas and based on the classic Elizabethan 30 hull but with a much better accommodation layout. This example is the rare but very handy, bilge keel version.
The Elizabethan was once named as one of their “used boats of the year” by Sailing Today magazine. Part of their review said ….”has all the advantages of the Contessa…….fast, well mannered and extremely seaworthy”. It also added, …..”If you like the Elizabethan, but are concerned about interior space, you could always look for the (rare) Hummingbird 30….”
Down below, the headroom is good, and it feels quite roomy and light.

Please be aware that while all of the above is correct and this is a lovely boat, the boat has recently had some accidental damage occurred to it, which is detailed below.
After a recent refit and launch, the boat sustained slight water damage due to an old repair around the bilge keel splitting (luckily this was caught in time) but did result in the engine being lifted out and checked over, there was no real damage to the engine, but unfortunately the starter motor was flooded. A temporary repair was carried out on the hull, which is still holding water tight, but will need properly repairing (no problem if you can fibre glass)!! Can be repaired in the yard where she is, or lifted free of charge onto transport. The mast is currently down.
Lying in Torpoint Cornwall
Please see photos of the patched area, definitely advise viewing before purchasing, this boat needs work before it is safe to go back in the water.
