Roberts 310 Pilot House version built by Duncan & Jill Mason - at 8.5 knots

Roberts 310 Version A

ROBERTS 310R/C Steel, Fiberglass or Wood / Epoxy
This design may be built with either a regular trunk cabin or a pilot house.  It is a  pleasant, speedy little cruiser that has found many admirers. It is also an economically sized yacht to build and this vessel is quite capable in terms of strength and comfort of sailing around the world.

You can build the Roberts 310 with a round bilge hull out of fibreglass or wood epoxy or in a multi-chine or radius-chine hull using steel or aluminium as your building material. The complete boat plans include many sheets of large-scale drawings, plus full-size patterns for the hull frames, deck and cabin top beams, etc.


Hi Bruce, as promised some time ago that I'll let you know when we have one of your 310's, she is on twin fins as per your drawings and rig as per boat plans. Sailing performance is superb, better than expected. We had the pleasure for 2 days of sailing here with Dick Durham (Yachting monthly news editor). She is to be featured in August issue. We managed to sustain 8.5 kts running beam to wind in 17 kts of wind. I think this proves that you know how to design an excellent smallish steel yacht. Jill and myself and Duncan Mason would just like to say thanks for an excellent design. She is a great talking piece in our local marina in Cearnarfon north Wales. Ive enclosed a pic of here under sail on the test day. If you would like any other pics please let me know and ill send some. Best regards Duncan & Jill. We think that the magazine feature will put it in better words than we ever can. (SEE PHOTO ABOVE OF R310 - PILOT HOUSE)

R434CC.jpg (21027 bytes) On the left we see the Fiberglass being installed on a hull mold as described above. Similar methods are used to install core material such as Corecell or Airex foam.

 

On the left we see hull rolled over to the upright position and then the mold is lifted out of the hull shell. The mold is sometimes removed in one piece as shown here or in parts depending on the shape of the hull and the method used to laminate the hull.
