1985 Bruce Roberts Offshore 44 Sloop Sailboat in green cove, Florida

Stock #149981

This 1985 all steel Bruce Roberts Offshore 44 has all the makings of the great cruiser she was designed to be. But she needs some love.

She was splashed in November 2017 after spending the previous 5 years on the hard. The current owner focused all of his efforts on seeing that the boat was made watertight and that the mechanicals were in tip-top shape.

The 1984 Perkins Range 4 135 diesel motor (Model 6.354.4) had the water pump recently rebuilt and the engine fully serviced by a master mechanic.

The cutlass bearing was recently replaced, and two new starting batteries were added, along with a PowerMax PM3-75 power converter (charger) The boat also has 6 2 ft x 4 ft.solar panels that keep the starting batteries charged.

Much of the cabin of this boat is unfinished. There is lots of room but very few comforts or conveniences. There is amidships bunk and a head and hand sink. This cabin is basically a "blank canvas" for the new owner to make his or her own.

Topside the boat appears to be in serviceable condition. There are some spots where there needs to be some repair to the steel, primarily grinding, sanding, and painting for cosmetic purposes.

The standing rigging appears to be in decent condition however it looks like the running rigging will need significant attention. The current owner is not a sailor and it's evident this vessel has not been "under sail" in many years.

The sail inventory consists of five sail bags that have not been opened for at least six years. There appears to be a main, a Genoa, and a drifter, as well as two sail bags that are unmarked. None of the bags have been opened or the condition of the sails evaluated.

Bottom line - "Melody" has the bones to be a great cruising sloop.But it will take someone with the vision to see through her scabs and the will to make her the grand dame she can be.

Is Melody calling your name?

Information On Condition

According to the Seller, this vessel is a work in progress and any Buyer is advised to engage an independent marine surveyor to closely examine the hull and all systems prior to purchase.

Design Note: Melody has a unique, Designer Authorized modification of adding a skeg and second rudder to the aft section of the hull . They are slaved together (the rear rudder and skeg is the modification) for better handling in heavy seas and maneuverability at slower speeds.
