I'm aware of this boat unless there are two of them out there. She is a 90s built steel single
chine boat (it may be a multi-chine) of a Bruce Roberts
design. She was built in 93+ by Topper Hermanson Builders then sailed extensively then sat for the last several years. She has a lot of interior
rust while I've not paid a lot of attn to the exterior nor seen the boat in person but only via online photos.
I'd say she'll need either media blasting (frozen CO2 would be a great choice here) then immediate metal treatment followed by a paint
system. It may require a fair amount of prep work before hand.
She needs plumbing
systems put in. i don't know about her mast
set or what shape the masts themselves or rigging
is in. The rigging
is over ten years old and the ship has had a lot of travel so I'd replace it all. I don't remember a lot about the winches etc. I'd need self furling
Then she'll need the entire interior
done and it does not appear much of that is still around and none installed.
allegedly needs to be rebuilt and it is underpowered for a boat that displacement
anyway. IMO. The shaft appears to be on the marginal small side and I can't say anything about bearings. I don't remember any special couplers although I think there is a Borg 2:1 trans.
Personally, I think I'd prefer an aluminum
boat but this one looks like she is very rugged and of course heavy. Obviously I've looked at her. I see her as a near ultimate single
handed blue water
boat with the ability to build your interior the way you'd like which would be open for me.
For the right price
and the right person then I think she could be an ultimate customized boat. I think you'll need another boat in the meantime.
