    My three cents
    It's an old IOR warhorse with a sugar scoop added

    Who’s able to tell me about the Fraser 30 build in British-Columbia by De Kleer in the 70s’ because they seems sturdy fiberglass bluewater sailboats but info available is very limited, please let me know?

    Bajansailor,
    First, thank you for all those link, I already had viewed them, but it is good to see the info and pictures again.
    Second, by chance do you know what “MS” stands for? What would be the difference between a Fraser 30 MS and a non-MS?
    Tks a lot, Phil.

    I think that the 'MS' probably refers to what they call the 'motorsailer' version, which seems to have a slightly raised cabin in way of the saloon - however the forward windows in the 'wheelhouse' thus formed are not very deep, and the visibility out of them does not appear to be very good.

    Make sense. However, the one I am interested with is also a Motorsailor without the raised cabin.
