Broker's Comments

My first time aboard a Bruce Roberts and I was unprepared for the sheer size and comfort offered in the vast saloon area.
I know these are home-build and come in a variety of layouts but this was simply outstanding. The galley area is equally spacious with the nav station nicely positioned on the starboard side. Passing through the starboard berth to the aft cabin with numerous storage lockers and the en-suite head, the access door to the small but very functional workshop area is found.
This is used as a liveaboard but I am pleased to say that it is sailed on a regular basis and is reflected in the good condition of the onboard equipment.
UPDATE, new underwater profile image.
