Maybe you think it can never happen for you.. what? you don’t deserve it? Here is how it has happened and might happen for you. If you want to sail away like you dream of, you might have to consider the time of life. Before you start a family or after they have left home seems favourite. You don’t have to be single, but a couple need to be well aligned to sail away together in what is always going to seem a small space. Not got the money? you will need to be practical anyway to sail far, so how about building your yacht? Bruce Roberts has been publishing first class plans and books for the amateur boat builder on bruceroberts.com for years. Many of his designs have been built and are a credit to his vision, knowledge and experience. Maybe you can afford this from Stephen Spencer, he wrote
…..our well traveled Roberts R50. We have owned her for 12 years and know her back to front. We have sailed many thousands of miles in all weathers and lived on board all year round. We are offering her for sale now as we have commissioned a new boat so will be moving on in the summer. She is ashore for a refit at this moment. The refit has included removal and inspection of the entire rig, engine and generator, a complete re wire and re plumb, new pumps and an internal update to the galley, shower, heads and cabins.. The ketch rig and canoe stern make this a most seaworthy design
Externally the last 20 years of paint and antifoul have been removed and she is all primed up ready for new paint in the spring [what colour would you like?].
We are open to offers and will discuss finishing to your specification on 07522395666
