Originally built as a bluewater racer/cruiser.
It was the one and only racing boat built by Allied Boat Company during the 20 years of its existence.
Allied turned to one of the greatest racing boat designers of the time, Britton Chance of Hughes Aerospace, to design the boat.
Applying his renowned skills to the 30-30, he created an incredibly fast boat, particularly when compared to the other models of Allied, a company that made its name from overbuilt, ocean-going cruisers.
