43' Bruce Roberts Norfolk by OceanStar Marine 1986

Steal Away

$98,000

Green Cove Springs, Florida

BRUCE ROBERTS NORFOLK 43, PROFESSIONALLY BUILT BY OCEAN STAR MARINE, INTERIOR FINISHED BY LITTLE HARBOR MARINE IN PORTSMOUTH, RI. Not launched until 1998.

Sail anywhere with confidence aboard this rugged and strong ice-breaker! Repowered with a Yanmar diesel in 2007, and just went through a full restoration. This is a steel boat that was built right!

"Steal Away's" construction is as solid as it looks. She is properly insulated above the waterline and coated on both the interior and exterior. See photos for insulation and finishing, as well as contrsuction photos. From her stainless steel Samson posts to her oversized Maxwell windlass, she's built to withstand anything. Her in-mast Hood roller furling main makes her easy to sail, and her wind and solar power give her self-sufficiency. She is truly a special boat--there are many Bruce Roberts 43's on the market, but none that were built like this! 

When you are shopping for steel boats, you will find many that were built in a backyard or built by novices. That is NOT the case with "Steal Away!" Built and finished by some of the most professional yards in the industry. There is not a spot of rust, as she has been coated and maintained properly. Thick insulation above the waterline but not below. 

This is truly a no-nonsense cruising boat designed to cross oceans--a far cry from the average fiberglass production boats seen today!

From the companionway hatch, you enter into a luxuriously spacious cabin with a salon table to port and well-appointed nav station to starboard. The engine is under the cockpit, allowing full walk-through access on either side of the engine compartment. The starboard side holds the galley and port a workshop which could also be converted to a cabin with berths. Aft of this and aft of the engine is a large master stateroom. 

Forward, there is a full head to port and a private v-berth.

One of the most impressive things about this boat is the amount of storage and the many access points where you can see into the bilge, inspect tanks, and properly maintain the vessel. This is truly a world-cruiser!

"Steal Away" just went back into the water after a complete restoration. She was painted top and bottom, and all her systems were gone through. She is ready to go, and the owner plans to continue to cruise her until she sells. This is a serious world cruiser! Call me and let\'s go see her!
