PRICE REDUCED - A Bruce Roberts steel hulled cruising yacht. Designed and built for world sailing and live aboard accommodation. The hull was fabricated in the Bruce Roberts Europe yard in Holland, a country where steel boat building is an art. The fit out was managed in the UK by the current owner, and completed by shipwrights and engineers in Bristol and Wiltshire. Accommodation is well suited to a large family or two couples. Very spacious, open plan galley, large dinette / snug area and comfortable pilothouse area. The aft suite is very comfortable with vast stowage areas. A proven cruiser with the reassurance of a steel hull, she has been very well maintained by her one owner and also benefits from a major rig overhaul in Dec 2014.
The perfect yacht for high latitudes, ocean crossings and long distance cruising.
