Fully offshore ready Golden Gate 30. S/V Quark is the boat from the book “Sailin’ South” by David Case. Quark is unlike any other Golden Gate 30, she had an extra layer of glass laid in the mold and has a fiberglass rib added every 16” for strength. The deck was also glassed to the hull full length instead of just bolted. This this is a modification done to many of the golden globe race boats but Quark had it done during construction.

Quark has and extensive equipment list and has recently gone through many upgrades including

If interested I highly recommend reading the book “sailin’ south.” Quick easy read all about the boat and the ts the boat handled like a champ.

I am selling her because I have recently been offered a job where I used to live in the Caribbean.
I’d be more than happy to take a picture of anything specific you would like to see. I recently sailed her from Oregon to La Paz and am currently living on her cruising in the Sea of Cortez. In the next few months I plan to either take her back to California or sail her to Hawaii to sell her there. Perfect boat for single handing or for a younger couple getting into cruising. If you don’t have any sailing experience and you can make it to the sea of Cortez I’d be more than happy to spent a week or so cruising with you to teach you her systems and make sure she in good hands before passing her on. At 30ft she is able to be put on a truck in San Carlos and driven to San Diego in about a day.

Feel free to call or text if you have any questions or want to see more photos. If I don’t reply for a couple days it’s because I’m sailing her around and don’t have service for a couple days at a time. Thanks.
