Roberts 28


Designed for multi-chine steel construction only, this design is available with both long and short keel options, as well as trunk cabin (Version A) or pilot house (Version B) layouts, and is an excellent small steel cruiser for family use. The pilot house version offers that extra comfort for those occasional  days when the weather is not so perfect.

The design can be rigged as either a Sloop or a Ketch and can easily be handled by one person.

The  STUDY PLAN PACKAGE has details on the construction technique and includes a materials list and accommodation layouts for both trunk cabin and pilot house versions. Only $38 plus postage
