Broker's Comments

The Robber is widely acknowleged to be the most successful Quarter Tonner of all time. She is a light displacement cruiser racer, with a reassuring big boat feel. She would also make a fine, fast cruising yacht as she is stable and sea kindly. Her present owner hasn't raced her at all, hence the recent roller furling headsail, and she still has her racing wardrobe in good condition. Furthermore, I haven't seen such a comprehensive electronics collection on such a boat, though a little tidying up would be beneficial. A great boat if you're not scared of a bit of cosmetic tlc.
