Martzcraft 35 - Under Contract



Brett Martz took the popular Roberts 35 design and put his own stamp on it. The yacht quickly became a very popular choice for cruisers enjoying that extra interior volume, neat design ideas below, and of course, the sea going abilities.

This yacht was built in Sydney to commercial survey standard with the attendant stage inspections. She has been a liveaboard since 1993 and is only reluctantly for sale. Well equipped and a host of spares go with the sale.

Features to note here would be the encapsulated keel, new standing rigging in 2009, teak decks re-caulked in 2016 and meticulously maintained engine c/w maintenance and service records.




Inspection by appointment with YBC.
