Don't miss this one, Owners have had a change of plans.

This vessel has been fully stripped and rebuilt and almost everything is as new and ready for true bluewater cruising. Redone using the best of materials (themolite panels) and stunning local Blackbean hardwood the next owners of this vessel will be rewarded with many years of care free boating. The Classic 45 Roberts Ketch has always been a favourite with true bluewater cruising abilities, This one has the added benefit of also being professionally built from the start and rebuilt by shipwrights.
