ROBERTS 493

Roberts 493 - Radius Chine Steel or Fiberglass ... Plans & Frame patterns

There are two different versions of this design - the Radius chine steel version that features a wing keel and the Fiberglass version that has a regular keel / skeg combination.

This design has appealed to many serious cruising sailors. It is available for construction in Radius Chine Steel or Aluminum or FIBERGLASS in either C-Flex, Foam or Balsa Sandwich or Single Skin Glass. A recent wave of "performance cruising boats" from a number of designers has obscured the fact that a good design always strives for the beat performance consistent with it's objectives. The Roberts 493 is an example : a stylish luxury cruising yacht for four to six people, capable of making fast passages in any weather and on any point of sail. www.bruceroberts.com
