VG-Open30

The 30 footer has always been a popular and practical racer, particularly with amateur boat builders. To capitalize on this and bring more affordable boats into the market, Van Gorkom Yacht Design have entered the Open30 arena with an exciting new 30 footer developed as a do-it-yourself (and a few good friends) kit-plan-package. This comprehensive package makes it possible for the sailor/amateur boat builder to construct a high performance one-off racer for a fraction of what a custom design would cost using the foam-plank, bead and cove, fiberglass construction method ( www.vgyd.com/Open30.html ).
