I've already spoken with Bruce Roberts-Goodson about getting a set of plans. I'd be perfectly happy to pay for a set but the Offshore 38 hasn't been supported for years, the drawings were destroyed years ago, so what would you do? Anyway, it fell through and no one has contacted me since.

Re: Bruce Roberts Yachts - Any Owners Out There ?

I have a steel Bruce Roberts 45 RC built in Riga Latvia in 1999. I found it abandoned in a yard in Michigan. You can visit my website to see our progress over the last 4 years. Planning to move the boat to the Carribbean next year. I love to discuss it and have gained alot of knowlege about it I love to share. The folks at Bruce Roberts have been helpful. My plans were not with the boat although it was built from original plans. They offered to sell me a set but do not have specific modifications made to mine. I think they are quite reasonable in the big picture.
