Description: Bruce Roberts 53 by Christensen Yachts Encumbrance Check?
Cruise in comfort and safety, in this most beautifully built steel yacht, wherever you want to go: from Pacific Islands to High Latitudes, this yacht let's you explore the most amazing places in the world. The pilot house is your new home, the place to hang out at anchor and keep watch. On Jade Akka (ex Western Grace) you feel safe & comfortable in all conditions.

Cutter rigged, steel hull with a lot of stainless, very solid sailing equipment, complete cruising equipment, complete electronics (dual helm stations), 3 en-suite staterooms, walk in engine room, solid railings. An amazing vessel, built for safety and comfort, to go anywhere. For a family, couple or also charter operations (the vessel was built and certified for charter in Canada). Just sailed from Pacific North West (Canada, USA) to Australia via Fiji, Tonga, French Polynesia.

All systems well maintained and ready to use, from water maker to hydronic heating and air conditioning, not to mention safety equipment and all the daily use features of a mile-eating cruising machine. Luxuries for galley, laundry as well as maintenance include microwave, washer/dryer, and also fully electric oil exchange pumps and more. Big overhaul in 2013, constant maintenance, addition of 1kw peak solar panels in 2017, upgraded indirect LED lighting. Turn key condition, ready to go.
