A boat that we feel fits the real sailing needs of a large number of yachtsmen.
Professionals who specialize in such things will tell you that successful boat companies build to the needs of their customers and, frankly, that’s what the new 303 is all about — a boat that I feel fits the real sailing needs of a large number of yachtsmen. The design parameters were laid down as follows: 1) A really big boat in the 30 foot range that sails at low angles of heel, has a shallow draft, and excellent sailing qualities across a wide range of wind conditions. 2) An easily driven boat that can be handled easily by a couple or a young family- an efficient boat for experienced or inexperienced sailors alike.
Abovedeck, her cockpit is big, deep, and safe. Below her wide beam and generous freeboard give exceptional interior space- comparable with many competitive designs several feet longer.
I’m gratified that over 100 sailors have chosen the 33 in just eight months of production.
Quite frankly, she’s a lot of boat. And I know she’s a lot of boat for the money.
