Roberts 44 - USD 75,000


A comfortable, well-kept and proven blue water design, Icicle I is fitted out for extensive cruising.

Her spacious covered cockpit extending from a hard dodger provides a breezy, cushioned living area and a well protected helm.

A wide saloon area features u-shaped dining table and long settee as well as polished wooden bookshelves and neat woven-rattan cupboard fronts. The saloon and galley are well lit by wide portholes fastened by adjustable latches to allow for airflow.

The forward cabin features two tiered berths, a cushioned step seat, vast wardrobe space and extensive stowage both above and within the sleeping berths. The aft cabin features both a wide double berth and comfortable seating space.

A long and open-style galley features a large stove, wide stretches of countertop, microwave and fridge and freezer compartments. This open space is invaluable for engine access, backing onto the tall starboard-side engine panels below the companionway.

A sizeable navigation table and adjacent chart table provide a broad and uncluttered workspace, with easy access to both switchboard and radio. Behind these the tall port-side panels beneath the companionway afford extremely convenient access to the engine.

The head features a shower compartment with a tall mirrored-door, electronic head, stainless steel sink and neatly and compact cupboard space.

Icicle I has crossed the Pacific and spent many happy years with her owners exploring the remote island of southern Asia, and now awaits her new owners.
