    Blue Dolphin of Wight is a Circa 1963 Tripp 30 also known as a Santander 30. She is a fast classic yacht built to a design by American architect William H Tripp. She has excellent sea-keeping and handling qualities and a very comfortable full-length cockpit with tiller steering. Possessing stylish good looks, she attracts many favourable comments. Blue Dolphin was re-engined in 2010 with a Vetus M26 that still has very low engine hours. With the royal blue hull and a nice amount of wooden trim, she is a pretty boat that sails beautifully.

    Brokers Comments

    Blue Dolphin is a great looking boat. Friends that have crewed on her, tell me that she sails beautifully. She is nicely presented and has obviously been well looked after. The engine was recently serviced. She was last surveyed 2014. The seller is moving to a smaller racing boat.
