FROM - Mature customer - moving from sail to one of our Trawler Yachts.  I built this 43 ft sailboat from your boat plans in Alaska and sailed it approximately 10,000 nm before selling it.  Wonderful sea - boat admired everywhere  .... Older now and into riding on the inside of the boat here in the Pacific Northwest hence my request for information on your trawler designs.  David K.

Frank Foster writes....I noticed your post to the "Justice" web site. Thought I would mention that I was the builder of the "Justice".  We met once at the Newport Boat Show while she was under construction. She is mostly Roberts 432 with an "R-45" layout. Regards Frank

This attractive interior is typical of many Roberts designs that are built by their owners.

Some builders go to great lengths to customize their boat - this dinette table is typical of some of these owner / builder features built into these boats.

Hi Bruce,  I love my M43 ketch and I wish the technology had been around 25 years ago to easily build a steel hull. I built it alone on shoestring in 12 years. Then I had to teach myself to sail. It is an easy boat to handle and given to no sudden or nasty tricks. A most forgiving design. Often on the bay , I meet other boats of the same size that are heeled strongly while the M43 remains adamantly upright. I'm making the same speed so I guess I'm doing something right.  The Mauritius 43is very forgiving and very stable. Only for a person who never skippered anything but a canoe God was she massive!  regards RF


Hello Bruce.  Just a short message regarding one of your completed designs.  My father, Charles Bonds, built a Norfolk 43 centre cockpit, flush deck, ketch rigged sailboat named KANGATOO from your designs in our backyard in Mississauga, a suburb of Toronto (Canada).  He started building it approximately in 1981 and launched it in 1989.  He set sail for Florida and retired there.  Unfortunately he passed away this year but he had many years of live aboard enjoyment.  The boat is up for sale now, but I thought you might like to see a couple of pictures.  Kelly Bonds

Bruce:
We have built your Offshore 44 design in steel are very happy with her.  She is a wonderful, comfortable and well sailing boat.  We want to enter a couple of low key races this year with her before we go off cruising.  One of the questions on the handicap form is the year that she was designed.  What year was she designed anyway?  We started construction in 1985, launched in 2002 and have been enjoying her ever since. 
For your enjoyment I have attached a photo of her taken last September in Tamales Bay, about 50 miles north of San Francisco.  Thanks for such a great boat. David and Rose Eberhard s/v Valkyrie
