|The story of Omega30|
Back in the 70' the 30-footers where an established concept. A lot of sailors thought that it was more or less an optimal size. When mast-head rigged vessels began to drop in popularity, in favor of partial rigged boats, a number of new constructions where launched. One of them was the Omega 30. It was designed, without rules (eg. IOR), by a world class designer - Ron Holland. The company that built the boat was swedish boat builder Familjebåtar AB.
The result was a pretty slick vessel with shallow keel, due to the target environment - Swedish archipelago.
Omega 30 is really a 31-footer if you look at the size of it, but since the 30-footer was so established and to harmonise with her larger sister-ship - Omega 34, the name was decided Omega 30.
Omega 30 was launched in 1983 - and she was built between 1983 and 1987. About 300 boats were built of this beatiful boat.
