There are many good reasons for the popularity of the CS30. CS Yachts produced a well designed and well built boat with the quality the yachting public expected at a very affordable price. Tony Castro designed the CS 30 and she definitely has some high performance characteristics. She is moderately light at 8000 lbs but has ample weight down low in her keel giving her a comfortable ballast ratio. This is balanced by a tall double spreader masthead rig with a good deal of sail area.
Her cockpit is roomy and the seats with angled backs are comfortable. Under the port cockpit seat is a large locker with a built in rack for the hatch boards and bilge pump handle and lots of room for sail bags, fenders and so on. Sail trim is handled comfortably with a cabin top mainsheet and traveler system that is easy to use even under load. Halyards are led aft to the cockpit, and both the halyard and mainsheet winches on the cabin top and the jibsheet winches are not only good quality selftailers but also standard features to boot.
As you come down the companionway, aft on the starboard side is a large double quarterberth that extends under the cockpit floor. Immediately forward of the double berth, facing outboard, is a small chart table with a hinged stool. The galley to port has a sensibly located deep sink, good high fiddles, two burner propane stove with oven and a roomy 12v refrigerated icebox with racks. The stove has a stainless steel safety bar in front. Galley stowage is generous, and lockers are equipped with suitable shelves and dividers for items of different sizes. There is a very comfortable dinette area with a large foldaway table for extra room when it’s not needed. The V berth forward features a nice drawer and locker unit. For great ventilation, there are three opening hatches in the coachroof in addition to the main companionway. For comfort on those nasty days, she sports a dodger, bimini and extension piece for her cockpit.
The wonderful care that she has had will be well reflected when you see her. It does not appear that she has been club-raced so there are no signs of wear and tear that you can be seen in many other sisterships.
