The Petrel 30 is a design by Alan Pape, a later and slightly smaller version of his famed Ebbtide 32 and 34 range. The Petrel was designed for blue water voyaging. Built in 1992 by Offshore Steel Boats at Barton on the Humber, UK. Built in steel, interior insulated with foam, exterior epoxy coated. Principle dimensions, Hull and deck are 4mm, Keel undersides 12mm, Centre Hull plate 8mm. Hatches, Toe Rail and Boom Gallows are in teak. There are wide side decks, guard rails and a self draining Cockpit. The length on deck is 30 feet, a bowsprit and Jib boom increase the length but these can be retracted. Beam is 10feet 2 inches, Draft 4 feet she is able to dry out on her twin Bilge Keels. Displacement is 5670 kg, Ballast is1500kg of lead incorporated in the bilge keels and central hull plate. The steel work is in extremely good condition having been well maintained throughout her life. There are no significant rust issues. Paintwork is sound although finish could be improved, Antifouling paint was renewed last year and really requires renewal. The sail plan is a Gaff mainsail, Staysail, Jib and Flying Jib. ( I added the Jib boom to allow setting the flying Jib). Sails are in reasonable condition. The mainsail is slab reefed with 3 reef points, the Staysail hanks on the forestay, the Jibs are furled on Wickham Martins. The mast and Spares are Douglas Fir and are in very good condition although the mast would benefit from varnishing. The mast is deck stepped on a tabernacle and can be lowered single-handed using the shear legs stowed aboard. The engine is a Beta-Marine Kubota BV1505 of 35 hp in good condition, having recorded around 1800 hrs ,is fitted to a Hurth HBW 125-2R gearbox, a 30mm stainless steel shaft fitted with a rope cutter with 17 inch propeller, all in good condition. The rudder is transom/skeg hung of steel plate with Iroko cheeks, in good condition. Accommodation is a double berth in fore-cabin, single berths port and starboard in Salon, plus a quarter berth rear starboard side. A small heads compartment is at rear portside of saloon. I purchased Alice around 5 years ago with a view off some extended cruising on my retirement.

She is well suited for a couple for ambitious extended Blue Water Cruising with enough room for the Stowage , also is well suited for a single handed sailor as the Sails are of a size which are easily handled, ie reefing mainsail is straight forward as assisted by a Gibb ratchet halyard winch on tabernacle and a Barton reefing winch on Boom. Currently she is on an affordable mooring paid up for 2021, at Wells next the Sea, Norfolk, UK. Please get in touch for more information or to arrange a viewing.
