|Sontina is a beautiful example, (most likely the best in this country), of a Roberts Mauritius Ketch. A highly regarded design she is well appointed and carefully maintained. All her systems are of a high standard and no expence has been spared to ensure the safety and comfort of her crew. Her teak interior was professionally fitted out by a master shipwright to the highest standard, with a recent saloon upholstery upgrade in custom made high quality cream leather. Her solid dodger provides excellent shelter in all weather conditions.
She was recently slipped and anti fouled in May 2015, and a new bronze propellor fitted.
My wife and I have owned Sontina for 8 years, and lived aboard for 4 and cruised the East coast. The previous owners had her 17 years and cruised Bass Straight and the East coast extensively.
Sontina is the perfect vessel for a couple looking for a sea-change. Whether their choice is to circumnavigate, or just quietly explore our beautiful coastline, she offers practicality, comfort, incredible strength, seaworthiness and safety. An inspection won't disappoint.
