Roberts 40 Motor Sailer
"SERAFIN" is a 2007 launched 40ft motor sailer. One of the popular Bruce Roberts East Coast Fisherman, Trawler yacht designs, ideal for extended coastal sailing expeditions. The strong and durable hull was built to plan using Epoxy over 3 layers of 7mm plywood, and looks and feels very solid.
Featuring a large aft deck area that can be fully enclosed. This is the ideal spot to relax and lounge. Step through to the galley with cooker, grill and upright fridge freeze. Saloon area with a large dinette and wheel house to starboard.
Down stairs forward is a double bed with small settee, then walk past the central bathroom to the forepeak with 3 single beds.
The Cummins 4BT 110hp engine was installed new when the boat was constructed and has low hours. Top speed of around 10-12 knots will get you out of any trouble and cruise comfortably at 6 -7 knots. Add the assistance of the mainsail and genoa and you have a very economical, long distance cruiser.
This is a comfortable boat ready for a new owner to enjoy and place their mark on the Australian coastline.
People looking for an affordable, no fuss, manageable, live aboard / coastal cruiser, motor sailer, trawler, should have a look.
