Robert Clark 50 Ketch (1981) - €67.654,-

A GRP mid-cockpit ship for longer journeys, possibly with passengers. Given its design, it is well suited to the somewhat colder regions. The hull is a semi-splant and is heavily built. Designed by the famous yacht designer Robert Clark. This must have been one of his last designs, but otherwise little is known about the ship. Unusually, his designs were made in polyester. This ship was built in the mould, so has no gelcoat layer but is finished with polyester and then painted. Because of this, there is no chance of osmosis in this ship. Striking is the safe, small cockpit with fixed spray hood. The ship has well walkable gangways. The masts are placed in sturdy mast boxes on the deck, which makes them easy to lower. The cockpit is equipped with a recent cockpit tent. 

 

The interior is spacious with a traditional layout: on starboard the (new) chart table with new switch panel and the necessary gauges. On port side the spacious galley. Behind the galley, there is a passageway to the aft cabin. In the passageway is the access to the engine room and a pilot berth on port side. Opposite the entrance to the aft cabin is the large wet room, with shower and toilet facilities. Forward of the ship is the second cabin with four single berths and a separate toilet. The length of the berths in the front is 2 metres, in the rear the berths are a little shorter: 1.90 metres. there is ample headroom > 2 metres everywhere. 

 

The ship is equipped with a solid, good working diesel engine. The electrical system has been partly renewed, with an isolation transformer, inverters and battery chargers. Much is double and of recent date. The ship has a new hydrophore and a Kobola stove to which the hot water supply and the radiators are connected. 

 

This ship was for some time the subject of a legal dispute, therefore the refit that had already been started was halted and the maintenance work was suspended for some time. Apart from cleaning the vessel and normal maintenance of the underwater part of the vessel, the following jobs still need to be done Refitting of the two toilet and shower rooms, possibly renewing a part of the electrical wiring (a part has already been renewed), The teak on the gangways has to be removed and the deck and hull have to be finished again. New halyards have to be re-installed (new lines are on board), a place has to be made for a washing machine in the galley, a new refrigeration compressor has to be installed and all instruments have to be renewed, as well as the connections.
