Description: Roberts 53 Custom
Divinity is a beautifully presented steel sloop, designed full world cruising. Custom built be Allan Ellis, Ballina Boat building.

It was commissioned for the current owners who wanted a strong, safe, reliable, and very comfortable blue water cruiser.

They have enjoyed sailing over the years with friends and family around the Pacific.

This super strong steel vessel(6mm hull, 4.5mm deck) with solid teak interior was built to go any where. The easy to use in mast furling and self tacking staysail with all lines lead aft to the cockpit for easy handling.

Below deck is a lovely bright and airy deck saloon with owners cabin rear and two guest cabins forward. The saloon area will happily entertain guests, while the galley is fit for a master chief. Three large fridge/freezers, huge water and fuel tanks, water maker, genset, make long range cruising possible.

The cockpit where a lot of your time is spent is well covered to avoid the hot sun and has all the comforts and gear needed to make the most of the Pacific cruising lifestyle. BBQ, fish boards, rod holders, SS davits for tender, dive compressor.

The owners are keen to see Divinity go to a good home. She is ready to throw her lines and go.
She is on a private berth in Raby Bay Brisbane and inspection available by appointment.

Service History:

Engine and cooling system serviced May 2016

10 anodes replaced Nov 2015

4 Blade Vari prop was installed ($10K) Propspeed Nov 2015

Hull was painted in Sterling epoxy paint 2009

Internally all interior has had 3 part system Sterling 2524 applied to prevent and corrosion.

Below the water line was sand blasted back to remove excess antifoul and was thoroughly treated and coated with 2 coats Sterling 2524.

Every engine service anti friction was added to the oil and engine filters were always changed at each service.

There is also a fuel polishing system on board as well to prevent any poor fuel quality reaching the engines.

There are also many spares like a spare alternator for the generator. A spare starter motor, a spare water pump, spare seals for the gear box, spare filters for both engines, spare gaskets, spare fan belts, spares for the hydraulic steering, spares for the dive compressor etc. Etc.

It is also fitted with Ultra Sonic anti foul assist as well($1500 cost) and this extends the Antifouling for up to 3 times the norm slipping. She was slipped last NOV and painted with SEA QUANTUM 3 coats. This should give us 3 to 5 years before needing to slip again.

The owners have never cut corners when it came to maintenance.
