Clansman 30 Fairlite
|Location:||Main Beach, 4217, QLD|
The Clansman 30 is a 30-foot class of narrow-beam full-keel yacht manufactured on the New South Wales Central Coast of Australia. Production ran from 1965 through 1985, with hull numbers from 1 to 108.
The Clansman was one of the first fiberglass production yachts in Australia and arguably was one of the strongest. The Clansman was laid up extremely thick, with solid glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) hull and GRP and plywood deck. The interior furniture was made of plywood and glassed in place. Although rough by today's standards, the fit out proved functional and strong.
It is an exceptional sea boat that has stood the test of time in performance in adverse conditions, with one of the class (hull number 7) having been sailed from Australia to the east coast of the USA.
The Clansman 30 was designed and built by East Coast Yachts in Gosford NSW. The builder was Bruce Fairlie who owned and operated the business. The Clansman was one of many yachts he built, however the Clansman was the only yacht Fairlie designed himself.
