Seller's Description

1978 Capitol Yachts, Newport 30 Mk2 - $15,500

Boat is in good working order, just got back from a 2 week trip in the Canadian Gulf Islands. Spent some time in San Juan’s, Sidney, Ganges, Galiano, Nanaimo, Gabriola, filled up fuel half way through the trip, added 6 only gallons of diesel!

Cockpit is fully enclosed with dodger, sun shade, and vinyl side windows. Comes with 145% Gennoa on roller furling (summer sail in good condition) and 105% Jib as spare (winter sail in okay condition). Has Yanmar 2GM20F diesel engine that was retrofitted in the early 2000’s. 30 gallon diesel tank, 60 gallons fresh water tank, 12 gallon holding tank. Heat from a forced air diesel cabin heater (5kW Webasto style), has a 3 Burner propane range with oven, and a Jabsco manual toilet with new plumbing last year. Two anchors to choose from, Bruce works well around here, danforth anchor if you want to collect some salad greens. 10 chain and 200 of rode connect to a Lewmar windlass which has its own dedicated battery. Comes with an 8’ inflatable dingy with oars and a trolling motor to get to shore.

The boat is in the water full time with no leaks from salt water below or fresh water from above. Its currently in Skyline Marina, which is the closest marina to the San Juan’s while still being in Anacortes. Slip should transfer no problem.

This boat has been very comfortable for our family of 3 for the last several seasons, we’ve spent a lot of time on it both summer and winter. The enclosed cockpit and cabin heater makes winter sailing much more possible with young ones aboard.

“The goal isn’t to own all the toy’s its to play with them all” so I’m asking $15,500 to allow for a quick sale. Text or call Brandon!

Calculations

Hull Speed
8.3 kn
Classic: 6.9 kn

Hull Speed

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Formula

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

A more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

8.29 knots
Classic formula: 6.9 knots
Sail Area/Displacement
16.6
16-20: good performance

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

Formula

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3

  • SA: Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D: Displacement in pounds.
16.56
<16: under powered
16-20: good performance
>20: high performance
Ballast/Displacement
32.5
<40: less stiff, less powerful

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Formula

Ballast / Displacement * 100

32.49
<40: less stiff, less powerful
>40: stiffer, more powerful
Displacement/Length
191.7
100-200: light

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

Formula

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
191.73
<100: ultralight
100-200: light
200-300: moderate
300-400: heavy
>400: very heavy
Comfort Ratio
19.1
<20: lightweight racing boat

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Formula

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
19.05
<20: lightweight racing boat
20-30: coastal cruiser
30-40: moderate bluewater cruising boat
40-50: heavy bluewater boat
>50: extremely heavy bluewater boat
Capsize Screening
2.1
>2.0: better suited for coastal cruising

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.

Formula

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
2.13
<2: better suited for ocean passages
>2: better suited for coastal cruising

Notes

The changes in this version allowed it to rate as an IOR 3/4 ton (24.5). (Including taller mast and shorter boom.)
Also called NEWPORT 30 PHASE II.
Shoal draft version: 3.75’/ 1.14m.
