"Typhoon" sailed by James Geil

The Bermuda was the first model introduced by Cheoy Lee and the year was 1963 according to Practical Sailor although we have one owner whose Bermuda was built in 1961
Text from original brochure

The Bermuda 30 is a boat that commands instant admiration from "old salts" and "newcomers" alike. You will marvel at the wealth of detail thought that has gone into her. An adaptation of the well-known Herrshoff H-28 offshore ketch, she is a true family boat with plenty of room and livability both above and below. A single-hander if need be, she's to be reckoned with in any race. 

Although the Bermuda 30 slides through the water effortlessly, she is built also for cruising enjoyment. Her roomy forward and main cabins, storage areas, toilet room and galley are brightly lighted and well aired, and a six-footer can roam erect throughout her spacious interior without bumping his head. As many as ten adults can be accommodated in the cockpit of the Bermuda 30. She sleeps four. Optional equipment is available as desired, including sloop rig and Diesel engine.

Fiberglass Model

Reinforced Plastics hull with Lloyd's moulding certificate or built to Lloyd's 100A1 classification is also available for the Bermuda 30 to take the place of teak hull, while decks, cabin sides and interior remain in teakwood

Production Years: At least from 1962 to 1967 from data sent in by 27 owners.
