Advertiser's comments

The MG 30 is a well regarded, solid, long keeled cruiser that was still in production until the mid 90's. She has been well maintained and up-graded during the years of my ownership. Whilst attractive, slim and fair, she includes a traditional layout for her age. The hull was laid up in thick grp with an encapsulated keel and the top-sides are fitted out with hardwood features. She comprises a great package for coastal cruising and some club racing fun
