New engine, New electrical system, New sails and everything onboard overhauled and updated.

"The sturdy pocket cruiser "Roobarb" has had a five year renovation for a longer cruise, when a new job unfortunately forced me to postpone the trip. I got as far as La Rochelle in the Biscay before I turned back in 2010."  Owner quote.

Most equipment is replaced; sails, standing rigging, winches, upholstery, new engine (three cylinder 25 hp Vetus M3.09, 2008), New icebox + Isotherm ASU fridge (unused, yet to be connected), dark blue two-comp paint on hull (De IJssel), all 3 sails are new or near new (old ones can be included) and much more.

Inside some of the mahogany has been painted off-white to brighten the interior. The two bunks have luxury spring mattresses and as they are higher than normal there are huge storage underneath, low and central.

If more info is wanted of what has been done; three books are written about the renovation of ”Roobarb”, (Adlard Coles Manual series -

On Google Book excerpts can be found.

A copy of all three books will be included in the purchase.

Note: Roobarb is in Sweden - great opportunity to explore one of the best cruising grounds in the world; the Baltic and the Swedish and Finnish archipelagos with its more than 50 000 beautiful islands. The weather in summer is better than in UK - though season is shorter. Peak water temperature in the archipelagoes around 20-24°C.
