For sale: N30 "Escapade" #1523

Noelex 30 #1523

White Hull and deck (Red stripe/grey covers).

Built to survey by Marten Marine in NZ.

Set up for extended cruising, but also a very capable racer (often used for Wednesday afternoon racing – single handed).

Escapade has ticked all our boxes over the last 8 years of ownership:

  1. Used for live aboard offshore cruising (including Jul-Oct 2011 – Pt Stephens to Nth NSW coast; and Apr-Oct 2013 – Port Stephens to Whitsundays).
  2. Able to go under bridges and power lines (with the mast lowered or removed) for exploring previously denied waterways including the Myall lakes and several rivers of NSW and QLD,
  3. Explored shallow cruising grounds (with the keel raised) and also able to come right into shore to pick up the grand kids.
  4. Sail or race – short or single handed,
  5. Allowed the same cruising lifestyle as previous larger yachts (but at a fraction of the cost).
