Broker's Comments

The Roberts 36 design is by Australian born designer Bruce Roberts, and can be built in steel or aluminium, normally cutter or ketch rigged.
Around 200 have been built around the world, and they have a good reputation as a solid long-distance cruising yacht.
There are a number of deck/coachroof variations on the design, this one is a steel cutter rigged sloop having an aft and deep cockpit.

A substantial go anywhere sailing Yacht built to a high standard with great detailing, with only 153 hours on the engine.

Built by its current fastidious owner from 1990 until its launch in 2009 following a full Survey. is even at 12 Tonnes capable of 7 knots. This Yacht would be fully appreciated by another owner who appreciates great workmanship in a safe sailing environment, for coastal hopping or crossing oceans as a livaboard.
