1979 30' FAIRCHILD YACHTS Motor Yacht Scout 30 Fort Lauderdale Florida United States
In 1976, Fairchild Yachts commissioned noted power boat designer- Ben Oslund of Newport Beach, California to design a 30 foot raised deck cruiser in the classic style. A great deal of research and careful calculations resulted in the SCOUT 30, a vintage motor yacht with some valuable improvements, and carefully thought-out innovations.
The SCOUT 30, powered by the reliable Perkins 4-108 diesel, will deliver 20 mpg at 8 knots and will cruise for 1,000 miles, without refueling, on 100 gallons of fuel. 2000 lbs of ballast provide superb ultimate stability and the soft bilge sections remove the uncomfortable 'snap roll' experienced on hard chine yachts.
The SCOUT 30 is an excellent sea boat: dry and comfortable. She is quiet under power, both in the cockpit and in the saloon. Extremely efficient, the SCOUT 30 is obviously a good idea whose time has come...again.Contact the yacht broker to receive more information or schedule a showing of this 1979 30' FAIRCHILD YACHTS Scout 30 Motor Yacht Pilothouse Pilot yacht for sale in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA today!
