The Roberts 43 is a popular steel long-distance cruising yacht. She was designed by Bruce Roberts. Most are amateur-built, to varying standards of quality, and frequently with differences in internal layout. Of the two examples used in these pictures, one was amateur built, and the other by a professional steel fabrications company. Whilst the hull shape is generally similar between all Roberts 43s, there are very many variations in deck and coachroof layout, almost all builders incorporating their own ideas in the construction.
