Based on the hugely popular Nicholson 31 the Halmatic 30 is very much of the same styling and has proved to have all the desirable attributes associated with this generation of heavy displacement long keeled GRP cruisers. With around 200 having been built in total the design has proven to be a very good sea boat capable of blue water adventures or just coastal cruising in comfort.
'Hilaryous' is a very tidy and well present example of this robust little cruiser and has been well maintained throughout her life. With a complete inventory the boat is ready to go sailing with her new owner. With a recent substantial price reduction and lying afloat in commission in Tarbert, Loch Fyne this boat is worth travelling to view with an owner who would consider any serious offer.
