Description: Roberts 53 Centre Cockpit Ketch and 16m Marina Berth Encumbrance Check?
Reluctantly selling "Margarita", our easily handled cutter-rigged ketch. Launched December 1993 in Adelaide, we have extensively sailed the East Coast as far as Lizard Island with several years in the Whitsundays. Now returned to Adelaide, she is for sale due to health reasons, together with her 16m marina berth (combined or separate sale, boat $145,000; marina berth $120,000, all offers considered). A comfortable, sea-worthy boat, ideal for living aboard, she was professionally re-rigged in April 2014. Surveyed in December 2013, the surveyor commented "A well-built, well-maintained off-shore cruising yacht suitable for all oceans"
