The Willard Vega 30 was produced from 1972 to 1975. During those four short years, an incredible 110 Vega 30s were pulled form Willard molds. Willard Marine produced more of this model than any other. This model was built in four different versions, Nomad, Voyager, Horizon, and Searcher. Today, a Vega 30 in good condition is worth twice what it cost new.

The Horizon version is a 'motorsailer' with low profile superstructure. There were 28 Horizon versions.

The Nomad version is a 'sedan' style with flybridge above on the boat deck. 29 of this version were built.

The Voyager is a raised 'pilothouse' style with a full width saloon aft of the pilothouse. There were 29 of this version built.

The Searcher is a 'fishboat' style with pilothouse and flybridge directly above the pilothouse. A total of 20 hulls were built.

In addition, 2 hulls were produced and sold as 'hull only'.
