Ocean 30 Further Reading

This classic styled cruiser was produced in various forms by several different builders from 1967 onwards. This solid round bilge long keeled displacement boat handles very easily at low speed and many oceans have been across the North Sea. The John Bennett design was moulded by Aqua Fibre of Rackheath. Most styles were aft cockpit but single and double aft cabins were also made. The inteior layout was 2 V berths in the separate front cabin, with conventional dinette. Some versions features wrap round dinette. The interiors were of high quality timber usually varnished mahogany, some special orders featured teak. The first model was known as a Moonraker 30, built by Buxton marine services. This is distinguishable from other Oceans having a stout PVC upper strake, black marble formica toilet compartment and large decorative mast. Around 1971 Herbert Woods Potter Heigham took over production and then Dick Nunn from 1974 to 1977 after which a few were built by Ray Bondon.

The cockpit configuration varies from full canopy with folding windscreen to hard top with high screen and hard top with lower screen (usually with lowered floors) Engines were usually Mercedes OM636 diesel and Perkins diesel single and twin all conventional aft drive. The hire cruiser versions often had BMC 1.5 diesels. Over 200 Ocean 30s and 38 Moonrakers were built. Top speed was tested at approx 10 knots. The AF 30 mouldings were also used by many hire companies to build their own fleet boats. These often had the single aft cabin. The double aft cabin was generally built for private use.
