Broker's Comments

The Robber 3E, one of the most successful Quarter Tonner designs, is the modified version of the earlier 1970’s variety. As a light displacement cruiser, the boat provides numerous attractive sailing options, from coastal cruising to competitive club racing.  Set-up for singlehanded sailing, the advantage of an inboard engine and a good sized cockpit.
This boat has benefited from recent investment and is presented in good condition. With it's open plan design and separate heads, it can sleep up to 6 people, including two forward, two saloon and two pilot berths.

When I visited the boat I was impressed by the quality of the potential sailing performance this boat has, while still having the feel of a seakindly cruiser.
