Sail Area 255 sq ft., Mast Height Above the Water 29' 6"
Designed by Ted Brewer. Built by Marine Concepts.
Sails are in very good shape and include mainsail, jib (w/furler), mizzen, and gennaker.
Mercury 6hp outboard, mounted in a motor-well.
Dual axle aluminum trailer.
This is a unique, well designed yawl.
it is easy to single-hand.
The sail plan is forgiving, allowing a number of ways to balance the forces of nature.
Do some research and you will learn that Ted Brewer designs great boats, and Marine Concepts did not skimp on the build (solid hull, generous use of teak and bronze) yet they stuck with the K.I.S.S. approach.
One of the many unexpected hidden qualities I find most convenient, is that the lead ballast is located in the centerboard trunk that doubles as a fixed shoal draft keel.
The boat can sail confidently in shallow water with the centerboard up.
To learn more about the boat, I'd recommend picking up a copy of 'Sailing Small' by Stan Grayson. There is a chapter dedicated to the Rob Roy 23.
