Roberts 36 Version A
Roberts 36 Version B
Several hundred of this design have been
completed and are in service
around the world. Many Roberts 36's have made complete circumnavigation and
countless ocean crossings are on record. This is a well proven design that, while
lacking in 'around the buoys' racing ability is a comfortable, well found cruiser.
