S&S design #2014. See AQUA 30 for more details.
Also sold as the AQUA 30. Imported to US and sold as the PALMER JOHNSON 30. (actually there were 2 versions of the PJ 30, both different vintage S&S 30's.)
An earlier S&S 30 (S&S design 1999c) was built by Swarbrick Bros. of Australia as well as the YANKEE 30, by Yankee Yachts (USA).
Thanks to Owen McCall, PJ-30 owner, for supplying information on the different versions of the S&S 30.
