Boat Details

1977 Baba Cutter 30 ft



The master of the canoe stern, cutaway full keel, ocean capable cruiser is undoubtedly Robert Perry ? and the Baba 30 is one of his classics. This exquisite little yacht is beautiful to look at, superbly built with a solid teak interior, and has great functional accommodation and headroom. She is a wonderful sailor, unlike many full keel, substantial displacement vessels we see in the marketplace.
While designed to be capable of circumnavigating the world as an ideal couples cruiser, because she sails so well, she would not be out of place just cruising in our local waters. This is truly a vessel for the individual who appreciates quality construction that will endure for decades. Rebuilt motor, new rigging, new batteries and so much more check out the equipment list to see all she has to offer.

This vessel is located in beautiful San Carlos Sonora, Mexico, A short 250 mile drive on a safe 4 lane highway from Nogales, Az. San Carlos is a known boating destination/community, featuring breathtaking scenery, quiet anchorages nearby, great fishing, diving, two marinas, 3 haul out facilities and much more.
