ROBERTS 370 - MULTI CHINE version built in Norway.

ROBERTS 370 - WOOD EPOXY  built in Australia.

Hi Bruce, Firstly the boat has given us a great deal of pleasure and yes she sails very well. Our first real shake down cruise was a trip accross the gulf in conditions which  were forcast to be 25 to 30 knots.  we very soon after found that the conditions were not as to be expected.  the majority of the trip was in conditions of 35 to 40 knots blowing from the SE on our port stern quarter.

She really powered along with no vices at all.  The depth soon shallowed as expected so were surfing 2.5 to 3 mtr waves.  when we reached our destination it was just to risky to attempt to anchor in the haven we wanted so went back to sea and spent the night riding it out.  Her performance was very impressive. Thank you for a great boat,  Graham and Shirley.

This boat was built in Turkey and you can see that the builder did a nice job of building from our boat plans and frame patterns.

Here is one of Your 370Cs near the Adriatic coast (Croatia). Since You were so nice to re-send me "The metal boats", I decided to Thank You with the picture I really like. She has a registered top speed of 12 kts, and has been built in Zagreb, Croatia eight years ago.  Best regards, J. Palcic
 


Dear Bruce,  I  am glad to communiCATAMARANe you in case of the 20-th anniversary of  my HELIOS – Robert's 370 launching - June 22, 1993. It was a great adventure to build myself such a boat, and it is still a great pleasure to sail it. In the past 20 years we had lot of traveling at Adriatic sea and Mediterranean, but didn't realized my initial goal – around the world trip, due to the crazy war in Croatia.

Your design is really GREAT, and I would reccomend it to anyone dreaming to sail !

Included are some photos – from the beginning, up to present days. Would be very glad to offer you a sailing trip around Dalmatiam coast. Many thanks & best wishes to you - on the land and at the sea !  Sincerely :  Konstantin Kostov, sculptor Sibenska 9j, 23000 Zadar Croatia
