Broker Remarks

1980 LM30
A very much loved and well cared for example of this popular Danish motor sailor that really sails. A delightful sailing boat, ideal for coastal cruising, anchoring up and 'chilling' whilst watching the world go by. Comfortable, easily managed and maintained, if one really pins down what most folk want to do in a boat, this LM 30 provides it all. Slab reefing and Bow thruster will appeal to those looking for easy boating.


The LM 30 offers 5 berths in 2 cabins. Her designers have made really good use of the space available by
designing the wheelhouse and cockpit to be an integral part of the accommodation. The saloon is closed off
from the fore cabin with a concertina door and from the wheelhouse with a mahogany sliding door. The settees
in the saloon convert to a single and a double with storage beneath upholstery finished in cream/beige velour.
The fore cabin, separated from the heads has a double berth with a wardrobe containing hanging space and
shelves opposite the heads which has a slide out washbasin. Storage beneath forepeak berth. A step up from
the saloon leads through a sliding door to the wheelhouse with helm and galley. The galley is equipped with a
two-burner gas hob, and fridge. The helm has a single seat, with a sliding Perspex hatch above the helm
position. The cockpit offers extra room with comfortable lounging and all-round visibility, together with space for
six around the foldaway dining table. Huge locker space under the cockpit seating. Webasto heating system.
Radio/CD, TV.

History and Construction
Designed by Bent Juuls Andersen and built in Denmark by LM Glasfiber. The LM30 moulds were later moved to
England, where production continued as the Scanyachts LM30 and later LM32 (this being based on the same
hull mould and is virtually identical). In the early 1990s LM ceased production of boats to concentrate on making
GRP blades for large wind turbines, in which field they are now the largest company worldwide.
They were always capable of producing excellent mouldings and this has proved the test of time when one
looks at 'Tangaroa'.
