Ronautica Ro330

The Ronautica Ro330 was designed for the Spanish builder Ronautica SA by Barracuda Yacht Design of Madrid. The design is aimed squarely at the fast cruiser market, with a very civilised interior in a well ballasted hull with quite a large sail area for her size. The standard engine was a Volvo MD2020 19 hp, with an option of a larger 29 hp.

The design was built from around 2000 to 2005, with around 100 built. It was renamed the Ro340 later, without any real change in specification. Two versions were built, the yacht illustrated being the cruising/club racing version with 5' 5" draught and a bulbed iron keel, the other option being a racing version with deep unbulbed lead keel of 6' 3" draught.

Her nearest equivalents are probably the Beneteau First 30.7 or 310, the Jeanneau Sunfast 32 or the X302, though the Ronautica has a substantially higher ballast ratio and slightly larger sail area than all of these, with ballast ratio at 40% compared to the others 28-30%.

'Yachting Monthly' reviewed the design in 2003, at a time is was being imported into the UK by Europa Yachts, who marketed her as the Europa Ro330. 'Yachting Monthly' reported that she ".... proved to be a fun, rewarding and fast boat to sail" and ".... we can see her appealing to people who love a boat that offers good handling and performance and who won't miss wide-open spaces or stowage for long offshore passages".
