Built by the Clark Boat Company in Kent, WA - the reputable builders of the popular San Juan sailboats. The Offshore 44' was a Bruce Roberts design popular among serious cruisers. The owners chose version D - a center cockpit sloop rig. The hull is laid up thick, so it is a strong and stable boat, and is less prone to hull damage than its modern counterparts if you were to hit a log or run aground.

Broker's Comments

This 44' Bruce Roberts Offshore was custom built in 1981 and is offered for sale by its original owner. It has only 2000 hours on its 62 hp Perkins. This boat can comfortably sleep six, and is spacious enough for long cruises with the whole family. The center cockpit with aft master stateroom layout is well-suited for living aboard or extended cruises. The interior needs a little cosmetic work as there are a few areas where water leaks have deteriorated the wood under a few windows and the galley floor. Otherwise, it is a stout vessel with a well-regarded design. She's ready to sail and is priced to sell. The seller just recently spend $1000 on the engine doing some needed maintenance plus a new 4D start battery. The seller says, "Bring on offers".
