This trailerable sailboat has been very popular and performs well in either the shoal draft or regular keel versions, both of which are included in the study package. While not as sleek looking as the latest offerings from other designers this design will always remain popular because of its voluminous accommodation and good, safe handling characteristics making it a wonderful  boat for the whole family.

This design can be built in either Moulded Plywood / Wood Epoxy or Fibreglass - C-Flex, Single Skin or Foam Sandwich.

Thank you for your email.  I wondered where the REAL Bruce Roberts was. 
 
I purchased my boat plans for a Roberts 25 from Bruce Roberts in about 1975.  A couple years later I purchased a Hull and Deck from Morrissey, Port Moody, Canada, and finished out the Roberts 25 in Mesa, AZ.  In 1981, my then 11 year old son and I took my month long shake-down cruise on the Aarian in the waters along the West coast of BC. 

Since then I've cruised in the coastal waters on the East and West coasts of the US, West coast of BC, Puget Sound, and the Gulf of  California, as well as on some of the lakes in AZ.    The Aarian is now loCATAMARANed in San Carlos, MX, on the Gulf of Californian, an area offering great day and weekend sailing and coastal cruising.   Although I did modify the cabin design just a bit, I have no complaints with the Roberts 25 design. 

The interior of my boat, with  6' head room (I'm 5'9") is as roomy as most 27' boats.  You did an excellent job.  Thank you for your part in years of enjoyable  cruising. Denny L Graham
