30′ Paul Rollins Cutter


This recently built cutter has benefitted from exemplary annual care. The current owner has expanded the boat’s capacity by installing a diesel engine and investing in the boat’s electrical package. Rachel Saunders is a lovely gaff-rigged cutter ideal for daysails and coastal cruising.

Additional images and surveys from 2015 and 2018 are available upon request. Rachel Saunders is available for viewing at Gannon and Benjamin in Vineyard Haven, MA.
