AKA Mull 30.7
Originally designed as a one-off for the St. Francis Yacht Club in San Francisco. The design was recreated as the Belvedere 30 in fiberglass by local San Francisco boat builder and rigging specialist Hank Easom. The hull design continued with modernized cabin top configurations to become the Chico 30 built in New Zealand.
Specs above are based on the reported specs for the Chico 30.
