  3. 1984 Bruce Roberts 34

    November 10, 2012 by EVAN

    About this Sailboat:

    A rare blue water cruiser and live-aboard with exceptionally strong, one-piece hand laid up
    hull (done using C-Flex technology – see below), new mast, rigging, sails and multiple upgrades to safely take you
    south or around the world.

    We refitted this boat to go from Toronto to Bahamas and finally to Australia
    where most of our family moved some time ago. For the last two seasons we were
    doing some trial trips on Lake Ontario to test all the systems and very happy
    with refit done on her. Unfortunately, we have to re-think this plan now and
    need a bigger boat because there are two more people who wants to participate in
    the adventure and this boat is ideal for a crew of two or three. Five will be
    too much.

    Why Bruce Roberts 34

    Legendary performance of Bruce Roberts design
    Excellent performance numbers. For example: Motion Comfort is 33 and
    Capsize Ratio 1.74 make her an excellent choice for safe and comfortable
    ocean crossings
    Bruce Roberts 34 sailboats are used by many as a live-aboard take you
    anywhere boat for cruising Bahamas, Florida Keys and many ocean crossings
    She is nicely equipped and already re-fitted for off-shore voyages
    I hope you did your home work and know how much it costs to prepare any
    boat for off-shore. For 32′ to 36′ boat (new or used) a normal figure is
    between $50,000 to $70,000 depending on the boat manufacturer.

    Equipment on Board:

    Why we selected this particular boat

    Very strong body because hull is hand laid with solid fiberglass using
    C-Flex technology – it is a high strength (67,000 p.s.i. tensile) material,
    which contains fiberglass rods and continuous fiberglass rovings. Such hulls
    are getting close to steel construction in strength without the weight and
    corrosion problems.
    Semi-fin keel encapsulated into solid fiberglass as part of the hull so
    it will not fall-out in the middle of the ocean leaving several 6″ holes in
    your hull. This gives you performance of a fin keel and strength of a full
    keel hull
    Heavy displacement gives you cruising comfort and enough enclosed storage space
    for several week long non-stop passage for 2-3 people
    Rudder supported and protected by a massive skeg
    Heavy duty rudder system with wheel to chain to rack
    & pinion connection (not flimsy cables)

    What was done to prepare this boat for crusing
    Hull and Deck

    Bottom is treated with epoxy, 5 coats of Interprotect and Interlux
    Micron CSC antifouling paint
    New Interlux paint on hull (2011)
    KiwiGrip anti-slip deck coating (2012)
    We replaced hand rails to all around stainless still tubing – much safer
    than a wire
    We installed a new stronger off-shore rated main hatch
    Added two solar vents to keep cabins dry

    Mast and rigging

    All new Klako mast and boom, new Andersen winches and oversized standing
    rigging installed in 2005 – this part of the upgrade alone rigging coasted
    over $35,000
    All rigging and hardware attachment points were reinforced with new
    backing plates for heavy weather
    Fully battened main sail with lazy jacks and MackPack (2012) for easy
    main handling by a shorthanded crew.
    We installed a new rigid boom vang (oversized)
    Genoa sail (2011) on Profurl furling (2005) and new Harken furling leads
    for smooth genoa handling
    We rigged a removable forestay and all running rigging and hardware for
    the storm jib so we can safely hove-to in heavy winds
    Rigged lines and bocks for asymmetrical spinnaker (very easy to handle)

    Mooring and Anchorage

    Oversized 35LB Bruce (2010) and #22 Danforth anchors
    Electrical windlass with 200′ of 5/8″ rode and 25′ chain
    Mooring cleats were replaced and backing reinforced
