Tiki 30 for Sale

Mahiya is exceptional, with lots of attention to detail and many unique ideas and features. She is a custom, professionally built boat (at a licensed yard in the Philippines). I personally supervised and took part in the build. For 2 years, 6 days each week I and a well-trained, highly skilled crew worked meticulously and methodically. Construction started in January 2007. She was completed and launched December 2008, 23 months later. Outfitting continued for several years. After sailing in the Philippines for a year she was shipped to Florida. She is USCG Documented, and has a Jones Act waiver which allows her to be used for charter work (she has a Coastwise Endorsement).

She is unique in many ways. No costs were spared on building her. She was the first Tiki 30 ever strip planked. The hulls are beautiful. We used strips of lauan (a Philippine hard wood) milled on site and perfectly molded to create nice lines and eliminate the “step” at the water line. The hulls were then glassed inside and out using West System Epoxy and cloth. There is a 316 stainless strip run down the entire length of the keel for protection while beaching her.

She is powered by a Yamaha 9.9

The mast is carbon fiber, as is the aft net tube and the bimini frame, all custom built for me in New Zealand.

All 6 nets were custom build in Saint Petersburg, FL.

The working sails were made by Hyde Sails. The jib is on a Pro Furl (roller furling system) and has a foam luff added for better shape while furled.

The main sail has three reef points.

There is also a screecher sail on a continuous loop furler. All sails are on 2:1 purchases for ease of raising and she is set up for single handed sailing with all lines led back to cockpit.

All cockpit cushions are cut from marine closed cell floatation boat foam. All material is Sunbrella (cushions, bimini, sail covers, hatch covers, etc). And the thread used was also sunbrella.

She is completely outfitted:

  • Auto helm 2000 with Remote Control
  • SPOT Satellite transmitter
  • GPS
  • Barometer
  • Wireless Instruments (Tack Tick)
  • Sea Anchor with dedicated harness and lines
  • 3 Sets of Ground Tackle
  • 6 Solar Panels
  • Dorade Vents on main cabins
  • 2 Solar vents on every cabin (intake and exhaust)
  • Lightning system
  • Surge protection
  • Lewmar Atlantic Series Hatches and lights
  • LED lighting through out
  • Sony Marine sound system (speakers inside and out)
  • Pressure shower on aft net
  • 2 heads
  • Deck tent
  • Mosquito nets
  • Lots of extra line (dock lines, sheets, etc.)
  • Dock box
  • Dock whips
  • Fenders (including 2 large inflatables)
  • 10 ft folding skiff with Yamaha 2 hp
  • And much, much more!

She cost me roughly $150,000 to build and outfit.

Will sell for $85,000.
