The Jupiter 30 is a rarely found displacement cruiser built in Denmark, well suited to economic coastal, estuary and river cruising. Macaret appears to have been well maintained and offers a great blend of spacious accommodation, economic cruising and safe sea keeping which is very hard to find at this size. Early viewing is advised as diesel powered cruisers suitable for both sea and river work of this size and quality rarely come along. Price just recuded!
Viewing by appointment only through our Essex office on (01621) 785600.

This Jupiter 30 was built in by the Jupiter shipyard, Denmark in 1974 to a Knud Olsen design. Blue GRP displacement hull with white coachroof and decks with non-slip surfaces. Rubber rubbing strakes. Wheel steering to twin rudders.
Macaret underwent a major overhaul in 1999 including epoxy coating the hull beneath the waterline, rebuilt engines, modern electronics and more. Since then she has been regularly enjoyed and even took part in the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Pageant as a working rescue boat. Thanks to the sea kindly hull, naturally aspirated engines and low air draft she has proved herself equally well suited to sea or river cruising and very economical burning approximately 5 litres per hour at cruising speed.
