This 1981 45’ Bruce Roberts Center Cockpit Staysail Ketch is now available for sale in Ft. Lauderdale. The current owner, a marine engineer, has gone through the boat and rebuilt or replaced most everything onboard to offer a new captain a well built sailing machine with all the goodies you will want for long distance passages.
The low hour 85hp Perkins diesel runs great and will offer 7+ knots under power or pullout all 4 sails and sail away to the islands. The full galley has all necessary equipment plus a 500 gallon per day watermaker to keep you in fresh drinking water while at sea. No need to take a quick shower as the vessel has a generator to run the watermaker and re-fill both water tanks in a couple of hours. The stern has the arch with davits to hold the dinghy and 2 solar panels, the aft deck has a manual windlass if you wish to throw an aft anchor and forward electric windlass to do all the hard work. If you like big spaces, the salon offers just less than 7 feet of head room and the entire interior was built with beautiful Taiwanese woodwork and trim. The full keel is encapsulated with lead ballast and offers great tracking making the autopilot work less and there is a second autopilot as a backup. There is a dodger and bimini to keep you out of the sun and spray and mosquito netting to cover the entire cockpit in case you want to sleep outdoors. And so much more at a very low asking price makes this boat a must see. If Baraka is of interest, please call Barry at 954-873-1800 and start you cruising lifestyle TODAY…
