1984 Sea Sprite 30 Sloop Sailboat in Cambridge, Maryland

Stock #198059

The Sea Sprite 30, built by Rhode Island's C. E. Ryder Co., may be easily overlooked by sailors unfamiliar with the model or the builder, but this small cruiser offers traditional style, good cruising accommodations for her size, well above-average quality, and perhaps a bargain price.

The Sea Sprite 30 shares nearly identical overall and waterline lengths with the Cape Dory 30. However, she has a slightly higher freeboard, is six inches wider, and is most easily distinguished by her 7/8 fractional rig as compared to Cape Dory's masthead cutter rig. I suspect some Cape Dory owners will argue, but I believe another distinguishing factor is that the Sea Sprite 30 is a step above the Cape Dory in quality of construction.

On deck,the teak toe rail that is twice as large as those found on other boats of this size. If you don't like it for its rugged looks alone, you're sure to appreciate it the first time you ever have to make a headsail change in nasty weather. Teak handrails, cockpit combings, dorade boxes, and an "eyebrow" above the cabin ports all contribute to the traditional, yacht-like appearance.

Down below, the arrangement is simple and proven to work for more than 50 years. A V-berth cabin forward is followed by a port head and starboard hanging locker. There are mirror image settees in the main saloon and a galley aft separated by the companionway.

Eight opening ports and two deck hatches provide good ventilation. And, with a displacement of 10,000 pounds, there is plenty of volume for good storage and 55 gallons of potable water in two tanks. An abundance of solid and laminated teak joinery is offset by light colors to avoid a dark interior.

Auxiliary power was provided by a freshwater-cooled, two-cylinder Universal Marine diesel engine which, at 3600 RPM, produces a rather anemic 14+ horsepower.

Information On Condition

According to the owner maintenance is done every spring. All maintenance performed by Generation III Marina. Bottom paint is 2 years old and will probably be re-applied in spring.The sails and rigging are 6 years old and we're told are in good condition. There is no apparent mold or mildew in the cabin, and the universal 18 powers her very well and has only 720 hrs on it.
