Designed by David Thomas, and built from 1979 to the early 1980s, the Hummingbird 30 was a modification of the Elizabethan 30 cruiser-racer design, with more emphasis on cruising accommodation. The underwater body and keel/rudder are identical to the Elizabethan 30, but the coachroof is slightly higher, and extends further aft, to increase headroom and interior space. By a slight modification to the transom mouldings, the cockpit is also extended aft slightly.

The Elizabethan 30 hull form is regarded as a classic design, and in 2010 was named as one of their "used boats of the year" by 'Sailing Today' magazine, in which review they said: " has all the advantages of the Contessa fast, well mannered and extremely seaworthy" They also suggested: "If you like the Elizabethan, but are concerned about interior space, you could always look for the (rare) Hummingbird 30...."
