This Pacific Coast Fisherman designed by Bruce Roberts is a substantial 40ft Ketch with Gaff rigged masts. With triple planked Iroko timber on oak beam construction, she has excellent sea keeping qualities.  Along with an incredibly spacious wheelhouse, a high volume interior and large practical deck spaces she could make an excellent multipurpose character home. The current owner has carried out an extensive programme of refurbishment and restoration so a new owner will be able to step on board and enjoy all that she has to offer.
