Has no one mentioned Bruce Roberts designs? Probably one of the most prolific design names out cruising the oceans.

Tough boats built in all manner of materials but I guess most would agree that steel and GRP are most commonly seen. The steel boats are generaly either Hardchine or, slightly less common due to the extra expertise required to build, fully developed round hulls..

Prices are reasonable and the quality varies considerably according to the skills of the builder. Some of course are professionally built but many have been built by amateurs. Prices (UK) for a usable 43ft boat would typically range from 45k to 150k dependant on age and build quality.

BR also designed both large and smaller yachts.

My BR boat is a Mauritius 43 ( round hull ) 15 ton Ketch launched 2006 with great gear. I bought her a couple of months back in the West Coast of Scotland (I live in the South of the UK) , and was pretty suprised how little information was available on the web considering how many of these boats have been built, I guess many are out there cruising rather than decorating the marinas of the world !
