From a man who spent 40 years of his career restoring and rebuilding antique wooden boats comes a 30' cold molded boat that combines the elegance of designs from the golden age of yachting with today's high -tech marine technology and performance.
The M30's lines are a tribute to great designers of the pre-war era. The ducktail in the transom is inspired by John H. Wells. John Wells was well known for his fast-running commuters such as Consolidated, Defoe, and the New York Launch and Engine Co. The transom is inspired by the late L. Francis Hereshoff and the bow is inspired by WWI battleships.
Moores believes that we are entering an era of yachting that both calls for and accepts a greater diversity of boat designs. He had been dreaming of a yacht for the new age. The M30 is designed for the person who appreciates elegance;who wants a civilized little yacht but wants it to perform as well.
This is not your grandfather's yacht, but one for generations to come.
While above the waterline she evokes a more gracious time in yachting, don't let her fool you. Below the waterline, the design team at B&B Yacht Design in North Carolina were to refine her hull to reach speeds in the 50 mph range. With the slightest of encouragement, the new M30 will gracefully lift her bow and turn in half of her waterline length. Try that with any other 30 footer on the market. Achieving speeds of 50 mph plus, she will race smoothly across the top of the water and handle like your all time favorite sports car.
With her cleverly designed hard top that will fold forward, she is well suited for use as your water sports yacht , a tender or just plain fun toy. She will be as at home in a stack and rack, on your private lift, on a trailer, or secured as your tender to the mother yacht.
The thrill of working with a custom builder can not be fully described. I have heard it compared to the birth of your first child or when you took your company public. The excitement begins with you deciding how you will use her and will never end as long as you possess her.
When she cruises across the harbor or up to the club dock, the world around her will stand still. The mark of a true yacht.
