Comments by Jim Donovan: The Humboldt 30 was one of my projects while working at Gary Mulls office. I drew the lines, sorted out the rig, rudder, keel, deck layout, interior, etc. It's a fairly roomy performance 30-footer - light displacement (not ultra-light) - very large rig for light air performance. They only built a few - really a victim of the economics of yacht building in the US. Higher labor costs in the US made it very difficult for US builders to compete. The hull molds were beautifully built by the same guys who worked on many of the production tooling for Santa Cruz builders.
