If you are considering taking a first step in the world of boating, our smallest Grand Sturdy 30.0 is your perfect introduction. A Linssen yacht is characterised mainly by its excellent sailing characteristics. And that’s what it’s all about of course: reliable technology, fantastic stability and easy manoeuvrability. In other words: carefree sailing.
The Grand Sturdy 30.0 is suitable for exploring all the inland waterways, rivers, canals and lakes in Europe. Many towns and cities are traditionally located on water, which means your can often moor your boat right in the centre.
Needless to say, you are not restricted to inland waterways. If you wish to go further afield, you can easily take a roundabout route to your destination along the sheltered coast.
AC or Sedan?
Do you want to steer inside or outside? What is the composition of your crew? Do you like a nice sheltered seating area close to the water or do you prefer to look out across the marina from the aft deck?
These are choices that help you decide whether an AC or Sedan version is better for you.
In the case of both versions, the saloon is the interior living area. Compact, but amazingly spacious for a 9-metre yacht. It has a galley and cupboards on the port side and a good-sized bench on the starboard side. The Sedan version also has the comfortable helmsman’s position on the starboard side.
Both the forward and aft cabins of the AC version have a double bed. Comfort for four people in other words. Are two sleeping berths sufficient to meet your needs? If so, the Sedan version may be an option. The wide, double, outward-opening doors allow you to transform the saloon and open cockpit into one large space.
Whichever alternative you may choose, it's always very easy to convert the saloon bench seat into a comfortable double bed using the Linssen Easy Sleep Convert System.

We have restyled the interior of our smallest Grand Sturdy. In this new style, everything revolves around light and space. We are setting a new trend in yacht building, as we have done on several occasions over the past seventy years.
We consciously decided to go from dark to light from floor to ceiling. When combined with the light flowing in, this colour structure ensures an optimal spatial experience. The 30.0 is the most compact of all the Linssen yachts, but you won’t feel “hemmed in” for a moment while on board. The saloon in particular, which is the central interior space in both the AC and Sedan versions, appears even more spacious due to the interplay of light and interior design. You can enjoy that ambience even longer on the spacious starboard-side couch. Or, if you prefer the Sedan, in the large space created when you open the wide double doors.
Floor with wenge finish
Whereas the classic yachting experience still dominates in the interiors of some other Grand Sturdy models,we opted for more contrast in the 30.0. This starts with the wenge finish on the floor. It’s no coincidence that this African hardwood is often used in the manufacture of luxury furniture. Its deep brown, almost black colour combined with the beautiful streaks in the wood creates a warm ambience on board. The floor is laid in wide strips to give a feeling of even more depth. Not only in the saloon, but in all the compartments of the 30.0 AC and Sedan.
Still cherry, but lighter
As you can clearly see from the artist’s impressions, the colour of the woodwork we use for the furniture and the overall finish is still high-quality okoumé hardwood with a cherry finish. Only now everything is a little bit lighter. On the other hand, the leather upholstery we use is just a bit darker. Of course, we left nothing to chance in deciding on these colours. To meet the requirements of our market, our interior designers have chosen a colour range that creates tranquillity, but at the same time is also rich in contrast.
