The CP30 is a delightful 30-ft. pocket cruiser. A larger 34-ft version is also available. Anyone who has read my ravings will appreciate my fondness for this design. I just love smaller boats. This design is even more special since it is a collabor-ation between our office and that of Chesapeake Marine Design. I have worked with CMD closely for almost 15 years. They have brought their experience to many of my projects over that long period. I am happy to be able to offer with them this diminutive gem for your consideration.
