I'm selling my Newport 30 this winter...in Mexico.

I have had a wonderful decade with this 1976 Newport 30 Mk II.

Now, it is time to sell off the Alize and let someone else enjoy this sailboat.

Below is a photo I took last week in the Sea of Cortez.

Yes, that is right, the Alize is located in the southern tip of Baja.

She is currently moored in the Costa Baja Marina in La Paz, Mexico.

2018: anchored out at Espiritu Santo Island, about 20 nm from La Paz

30 foot Newport 30 Mk II from 1976, designed by Gary Mull.
See here for boat/sail dimensions.

The boat will be available for purchase approximately March, 2019 in La Paz, Mexico. This date is approximate because we are still working out the details on the timing of our last Sea of Cortez trip this winter. I will update with details soon.

Inventory List below photos.

Boat currently has a TIP (Mexican boat permit) in my name.

Sailboat comes with 9 foot inflatable Caribe dingy and new honda 2.3 hp outboard.

I sailed boat from San Diego to Mexico in December 2017. I obtained a 10-year TIP (Mexican boat import tag) in Ensenada. Boat in currently insured in Mexican waters with Markel Insurance.
Boat is moored in Costa Baja Marina and Resort in La Paz, Mexico.

I am still learning the details on the best way to transfer boat from seller to buyer in Mexico. It seems if buyer wants to keep boat in Mexico, they will need to transfer the TIP to their name.

Stay posted while I research these details further...

Thanks for interest,
Kevin Curran
