Renowned for their Bluewater capability, excellent sailing performance, and spacious interiors, the Robert 434 has proven to be one of Bruce Robert's most successful designs. Many have cruised extensively with one even completing a singled handed circumnavigation in just 218 days! This vessel is a superb example of the design and has been cleverly extended to feature a modern sugar scoop stern. Built to a very high standard by the current owners, the vessel features a round bilge construction, exceptionally fair hull, and stunning New Guinea Teak fitout throughout. Since its launch in 2004 they have enjoyed extended cruising around the Victorian Coastline, Bass Strait Islands, and around Tasmania. Very well set up for long term cruising, this impressive vessel features a 6KVA GENSET, KATADYN WATER MAKER, 2.7M TENDER WITH NEW 2023 MERCURY 3.3HP OUTBOARD, HARD DODGER AND BIMINI WITH CLEAR INFILL, NEW 2023 RAYMARINE AXIOM CHART PLOTTER WITH AIS, NEW 2023 3000W INVERTER, NEW 2023 ENGINE, GENSET, AND ANCHOR WINCH BATTERIES, STAINLESS STEEL GAS BBQ, 4 MAN LIFE RAFT IN CURRENT SURVEY, the list goes on! Having just returned from exploring Port Davey on Tasmania's rugged South West, this impressive vessel is ready for its next adventure. Whether you want to cruising in comfort with family and friends, or fulfil your most ambitious sailing aspirations, this is a vessel that can do it all in safety and style!

Stepping inside, the quality of the teak interior has to be seen to be fully appreciated. This paired with the clean white finishes and professionally made upholstery creates a warm and welcoming ambience. To port is the generous folding leaf dinette, with seating for 8 in comfort on the settees. This is a great space to entertain or simply relax after a days sailing. The spacious galley is well laid out for preparing meals at sea, and is sure to impress the fussiest chef! It is very well equipped with 2 burner gas stove with oven and grill, microwave, coffee machine, large top loading fridge and freezer, double bowl stainless steel sink with H/C pressurised water plus foot pumps for both fresh and salt water. The accommodation is ideal for extended cruising with friends and family. Aft is the beautifully appointed master suit. This amazing cabin would be the envy of many 50 footers, and includes a queen size centre line island bed, excellent storage, and full ensuite with electric toilet with holding tank, H/C shower, and vanity. The second private cabin is forward, and can be configured as two singles or a double berth. This also features a ensuite. There are also two single settee berths in the saloon if additional accommodation is required. The interior is completed by a large chart table which will please the most discerning sailor.

Outside, the cockpit is well protected by the hard dodger and bimini with clear in-fill. Adorned with flexi-teak and luxurious cockpit cushions, it is a great space to relax and take in the views. The vessel has been very well set up by experienced sailors to be easily managed short handed, with all lines lead back to the cockpit, self tailing 2 sped winches, main sail in the NEW boom bag with lazy jacks and furling headsail. At the helm is the NEW Raymarine Axiom touch screen chart plotter, plus a full suite of Navman instruments above the companionway. There is easy access around the wide side decks, and plenty of room for all the water toys. The modernised transom with sugar scoop makes for easy boarding from the water or a tender, and the vessel is also well set up for catching a fresh feed of fish.

This vessel is powered by a well maintained and reliable Perkins 80HP Diesel Engine. This provides easy cruising at 6-7 knots. The engine room access is exceptional for a vessel of this size, with the Kubota Genset and steering cables also in easy reach for hassle free servicing.

With its superb presentation, spacious accommodation, and true Bluewater capability, this vessel simply ticks all the boxes! Sure to impress on inspection, this is a vessel not to miss. For more information please call Jo Breen on 0432031100 or John Radonic on 0459322862.
