Oceania 30 - looking for info

I am going to look at an mid-80s Oceania 30 that is for sale up in these parts. I have never seen a trawler that size - it is a sedan style with no aft cabin. It has a 90 hp 4-cyl Lehman engine. Does anyone have any experience with this vessel? I may well find that it doesn't have enough elbow room for live-ability over an extended period, or that it doesn't handle weather well with that small LOA.

Judy - this is also for your recent PM. It took me half the day to fix my account to be ale to use my ipad. I finally gave up on that.

I have now visited the Oceania 30 twice. Photos:
https://photos.google.com/album/AF1Q...PuIsSPM3etQDsa

Pros:
- just as roomy in the salon (to my sense of it) as the MT34
- galley better because of the corner configuration
- engine room is roomy and there are 3 hatches for access from different areas
- gotta love bow thruster, hot water, heat and A/C
- 30 feet means lower cost for slip rentals, bottom work, etc., and easier for stupid old man to manoeuvre etc.

Cons: (not including those listed in the survey)
- no aft cabin (V-berth not the ideal place to sleep on any boat)
- no flybridge enclosure
- outdated nav equipment

Mainly surprised that a 30-foot trawler would feel as spacious as one 4 feet longer. I will offer on this if I can just get some action on my Albin 25!

I own this same 30í Trawler. Mine was badged a 1983 Clipper. I also have the sales brochure for it. Love the 80hp Lehman. With all Taiwanese vessels, the darn thing will leak if not kept up. Shoot me a PM if youíd like any info on it.

Looking for cradle measurements for Oceania 30

Anyone have schematics for a cradle?

Congratulations on your purchase.

I looked at this boat too. Mine didn't sell in time for me to make an offer. I still refer to it as "the one that got away". Now that I am boatless and on the hunt I would buy one if I could find it. Does anyone know of one of these boats (by whatever name it may be called) that might be coming up for sale in the Great Lakes area?

There don't seem to be many of them listed for sale. What other names might they be listed under? Are there any other similar 30 footers out there that have the lower helm access door for us singlehanders?

Thanks.

If it is out of the water you can make your own cradle. I start at the keel and measure out X inches and see how much the hull goes up. Then repeat until you get to the side or chine. Then I laid out the measurements on a sheet of plywood and cut along the lines. I took another sheet of plywood and made a duplicate. Then sandwiched the 2 sheets with 2X4 framing in between. Made another one for the bow. Then joined them together with 2X10s. I made some gussets out of plywood that went down the sides of the cradle for and aft and were screwed to the 2X10s.. Kept a 30í boat on the cradle for a couple of years while I took the boat down to a bare hull and did a complete refurbishment. When I redid the bottom for blisters we did all that wasnít on the cradle then had a crane come in and move the boat about a foot forward and then fixed the blisters that were under the cradle.

I think there may be a few more. We bought the Tung Hwa 31 Senator about 8 months ago. We are bringing it up to our standards. Mostly down to cosmetics. We love the boat. Has several attributes for a small boat that make it great for a couple of single hander. Large water tanks, large fuel tanks, upper and lower helm, side door, etc.

Here is some shots in a video about doing upgrades.


If I see one for sale ill be sure to send it your way
