Major price reduction! Custom steel Bruce Roberts 44!

Outfitted for cruising or for charter. Conveniently located in a DIY boatyard in Green Cove Springs, FL, "Melody" is ready to go back to sea with a loving new owner. She is a solid and seaworthy steel boat, with a proven design, a very strong engine, and a fantastic amount of living space.

"Melody" was sailed and loved by her owners, who sailed her throughout the Caribbean. With her open layout and robust build, she is perfect for dive excursions or watersports charters. She is a craftman's dream, with a full workshop forward and great access to all her systems. Her custom pilothouse design makes her perfect for heavy weather sailing.

"Melody's" steel hull is solid and strong, and she is powered by a 140 HP diesel engine--far bigger than most boats her size. Her owners were serious cruisers who valued self-sufficiency and wanted to be able to outrun a storm or perform repairs in distant places, and this is exactly what the boat is set up for.

She has a custom teak hard top, and her interior is finished in pine and teak as well. She is truly a special boat! Please view the photos and video and call me if you'd like to see her!

Upon entering the companionway, you are met by a large salon surrounded by berthing. This setup was used for camp and outreach programs, and would transition well into a watersports charter boat. There is an indoor helm station as well as an outdoor, and a very large and comfortable u-shaped galley to port.

Stepping down, the head and owner's cabin and v-berth are primarily dedicated to storage, with a full workshop and all the spare parts you could need. This boat is loaded with parts, as the owner did all his maintenance himself. You have to see her!

Engines

The 140 HP Perkins has been cleaned and painted white, and is a powerhouse for a boat this size. Impeccably maintained by the owner.
