Moores’ new project has vintage look, modern performance

James P. Moores, founder and president of Moores Marine, a vintage yacht restoration yard in Beaufort, North Carolina, has a new company, Moores Yachts, and recently announced the inception of its first yacht –  the cold-molded, 30-foot M30.

“The M30’s lines are a tribute to the great designers of the pre-war era,” Moore stated. “The ducktail in the transom is inspired by John H. Wells. Known for his fast-running commuters, Wells designed for Consolidated, Defoe, and the New York Yacht Launch and Engine Co. The transom is inspired by the late L. Francis Herreshoff and the bow is inspired by World War I battleships.”

Moore said the M30’s hull was refined to reach 50-plus miles per hour, handle like a sports car and turn in half its waterline length. A hard top folds forward so the boat can serve as a runabout or yacht tender. It can be towed, trailered, or stored on a lift, in a drystack or a garage.

“If you plan to use her as a tender, we will install lifting eyes,” Moore said.

Construction will begin on Hull No. 1 in January. For more information, contact MooresYachts@gmail.com.
