Pros:
Cons:

Built by the Aquacraft Boat Corporation, Tamshui, Taiwan. Fiberglass hull built like a tank with lots of teak below decks. Very stable at sea. Built for cruising so it's not the fastest boat around. Roomy and comfortable. Center cockpit gives a huge aft cabin and privacy. Very pleased with all aspects.

Pros:
Cons:

Owned a Roberts 45 Classic (full keel version) for five years. Did mainly coastal cruising including a three week offshore trip (Abrolhos Islands)

Good points
- solid steady boat, family felt safe in a blow
- was plenty of room for a family of five
- nice looking boat
- cheap boat to buy

Bad points
- ordinary design, better designs available
- upwind performance weak. In +20kts could not make headway unless you motor sailed
-resale value will be poor irrespective of boat condition / equipment levels
- build quality variable, especially for one's home built
- with bowsprit and davits the overall length was 53ft 5". Need 15 / 18m pen.
