Designed by David Thomas, and manufactured from 1979 to the early 1980s, the Hummingbird 30 was a modification of the Elizabethan 30 cruiser-racer design, with more emphasis on cruising seating. The underwater hull and keel/rudder are identical to the Elizabethan 30, but the coachroof is slightly higher, and extends further aft, to increase headroom and inside space. By a slight modification to the transom mouldings, the cockpit is also extended aft slightly.
The Elizabethan 30 hull form is regarded as a classic design, and in 2010 was named as one of their "used vessels of the year" by 'Sailing Today' magazine, in which review they said: " has all the advantages of the Contessa fast, well mannered and extremely seaworthy" They also suggested: "If you like the Elizabethan, but are concerned about inside space, you could always look for the (rare) Hummingbird 30...."

Owner's Comments

We bought Pleasant Winds from a lovely couple who have had her for decades before us. She has been all over the west coasts of England and Scotland.
Apparently the more famous Elizabethan 30 has the same hull with a different topside moulding the Hummingbird is the cruising version with more living space.
On purchase we had her surveyed and following their advice replaced the rigging and undertook a winters work reenforcing the mast foot. We have also extensively replaced the wiring and created the fresh electronics box and replaced the cockpit platform.
We have had a lovely time with her and explored much of the Clyde and Inner Lorne we now have a young son and have set up as a sailing business for disabled sailors. Both of these things require
