General Description

This LM 30 Pilot House Motor Sailor has been extensively updated under her current owners and in our opinion is in very good condition. She comes with a very comprehensive specification including new electronics, new cockpit enclosure & new cabin heating all in 2014. With a good size forward cabin & saloon that sleeps an additional 3, she is comfortable & functional. Fitted with a 36 HP Bukh engine that has only completed approx 980 hours, she has the ability to achieve 8 knts under power. She has a spacious wheelhouse with twin helm seat, good visibility & large sunroof as well as a galley, comfortable saloon with two large sofas& bathroom with quiet flush electric toilet. We believe this to be a well maintained, well built & capable Motor Sailor from this respected Danish Yard.. She is currently lying Portsmouth.

Brokers Comments

This LM 30 Pilot House Motor Sailor is exceptionally well designed & appears to have been very well maintained & is in our opinion in very good condition. She has a good sized cockpit complete with stowable extending table, from where she can be steered via her tiller & gives access to the Pilot house. All lines are led back to the cockpit for ease and comfort when sailing. Once inside the wheelhouse she has her second helm with a wheel, twin helm seats and all the engine & navigational instruments. Many of the electronics have been recently replaced including radar, plotter, fish finder & wind instruments. Also in the wheelhouse is the galley with cooker, sink & fridge. The pilot house leads into the spacious and very comfortable saloon which with two sofas & feels much larger than her size would suggest. Forward of the saloon is the heads to starboard, complete with newly installed quiet flush electric toilet and the main cabin in forepeak with double bed and hanging wardrobe. Throughout the cabin, headroom is generous with 6’4” in places.


LM Glass Fibre AS were a very well respected Danish boat builder and we believe that the LM 30 does not disappoint. Having all the advantages of a sailing boat with the convenience and simplicity to switch the motor on when the wind drops and motor at approx 9 knts, some would say that this boat has it all.With her excellent design, comprehensive inventory & equipment list, this LM 30 offers everything you could need for fun sailing around coastal waters whilst still being very capable of cruising further afield. She has plenty of onboard space for safe & fun cruising with family & friends, but is equally manageable short handed. She is currently lying in Portsmouth & viewing is highly recommended.
