I have been contacted by one Rick M who wrote:
Hi, I’ve just discovered this class of boat and am very interested in considering buying one as my next step up. Could you offer any thoughts?
Has anyone replaced the packing on their sterngland if so how did they go about it. Does it require removing the engine as it seems impossible to do this without taking the engine out. Any advice would be welcome although it is not a problem at the moment. Bill
I have received an appeal as show below, where you can also see my reply. Any response via me, please, as Bernard is not registered with this site. Read more
Hello MG30 group members… and welcome to the new MG30 web site.
Hi all, just a quick update to say that Prima Donna has remained ashore this year due to family committments and work pressures. She will be sailing again in 2013 and I am now planning seriously for the proposed trip around the UK in 2014. You may recall I mentioned a little while ago I was thinking of doing this to celebrate 50 years since the Morgan Giles 30 design came out of the yard at Teignmouth.
Santana is back in the water after her winter refit and is in the Hamble.
I am trying to source a 2nd hand Roller reefed Genoa. Does anyone know the relevant sizes for a Morgan Giles 30, so that I can search the sail lofts.
I’m currently restoring Vagabond in Shoreham and then intend keeping her in Chichester Harbour.
It’s becoming more like a fleet!

sold his yacht Santana. Read more
Hi, not sure if people are still looking at this site but I am considering doing something to recognise that it will be 50 years since the inception of the Morgan Giles 30 or at least that is how I read the history? I am thinking of sailing around the UK in my boat Prima Donna and perhaps plan to meet up with as many other Morgan Giles 30 boats as I can on the journey? Just thought I would share this idea with you. I would be interested to hear from all you owners out there?
Bye for now,
