Re: Roberts 30 ft

I surveyed a Roberts 30 yacht that sold for $6000 here in Hervey Bay. It had a newer diesel engine but was in rougher shape than this one.
The inside of this Roberts looks a bit home built, the Bukh engine is probably getting a bit old, how old is the rigging, that kero stove is an acquired taste and horrible old ball gate valves behind the TMC toilet.
I think you can find better than this for $20,000 on Gumtree.
Cheers

And something above 30 foot we are a couple so i like the layout of the roberts as we can use the seat as a couch/ sleep and the v berth for a bed

Are you a member of Aussie Yachties Buy Sell & Swap? They have an S&S 31 on there for 17g. Looks an alright yacht.

Cheers

Re: Roberts 30 ft

There looks a really good Roberts on Sunshine Coast Gumtree at the moment. The lower hour Yanmar diesel is a bonus.
Cheers
