Robert Clark 45 (1957) 

Robert Clark 45 (1957) - €88.900,- 

The CORABIA is a fully renovated classic cruiser/racer. The beautiful classic lines and long overhangs will appeal to many a sailor. We are looking for a new owner for this ship who brings the ship back on the water and who can also take over the careful maintenance from the current owner. For this you will receive a perfectly maintained ship that has undergone a complete refit in recent years. The Corten steel hull is completely rendered in a modern paint system. The new cockpit is made of aluminium, the structure of teak and the deck is made of plywood.

Designer

Robert Clark is on a shortlist of English naval architects who while not perhaps as iconic as Fife or Nicholson, nevertheless designed boats that were fast, beautiful to behold and winners. While Clark’s artistic temperament might have been at odds somewhat with the RORC Rating Rules, it did not stop him creating the likes of ORTAC, ERIVALE, LARA, JOCASTA and CAPRICE OF HUON – all of them race winners under the Rules. 

 

History

CORABIA was built in 1957 for Mr Kars of Rotterdam to take part in the Dutch Admirals Cup Team; participating in 1957, 1961 and 1963. After the untimely death of her owner she was sold to the Royal Dutch Navy Yacht Club and owned by them for many years. She continued to participate in many regatta races and won several prizes. In the 80s and 90s under the ownership of Mr Jongerius she voyaged to Scotland, the Faeroe Islands and as far as Iceland.

Since 2000 the current owner has had CORABIA restored professionally. Following the restoration she has sailed to Scandinavia and England several times. She has also raced successfully on the classic racing circuit with a number of firsts in recent years. 


CORABIA was part of the Dutch Admiral’s Cup Team in 1957, ‘61 and ’63. She embodies Clark’s thinking with her generous overhangs and turn of speed. This boat has benefited from the care afforded by her current owner – and with her steel hull is a dependable classic cruiser as much as a winner of races.

Interior

On either side of the entrance there are two quarterberths, further forward the large chart table, after that you enter the sitting area with L-shaped bench and table, with opposite a bench that can also serve as a berth. Then follows the galley and the heads on the other side and in the front a separate cabin with two V-shaped beds. In the bow there is plenty of storage space for sails and ropes. 

 

Engine and Electric system
The electrical wiring is completely renewed. All navigation equipment has been renewed and the engine is recent.
