Re: Opinions on Bruce Roberts designs

Hi Jeff!

I can give you some info on the Roberts25.
What would you be interested to know?
In general, Bruce Roberts [the company] is /was helpful
with some info. Worthwhile to contact them.
Let me know if I can be of any help.
Best wishes, take care.

Dieter

Re: Opinions on Bruce Roberts designs

Last year I wrote Roberts to ask him a question about one of his designs.
He was kind enough to reply promptly and answered my questions, via email.

Any info would be appreciated mate, like how do they perform / sail?, were they strongly built?, easily handled by 1 person?, your experience with them?, the R.25 I am considering was built in 1984
Jeff.

Re: Opinions on Bruce Roberts designs

Hi
I saw your post and wondered if you are still interested in swapping information about the Roberts 25? I have had mine - keel version - for just over 12 months, built in 1990

Re: Opinions on Bruce Roberts designs

I have been told that every Roberts 25 was built with a 1 kg gold bar embedded in the keel. I have gone though my boat and found it cunningly hidden in the forward section. Has anyone else discovered the gold bar in their Roberts 25?
