Further Comments

You cannot get more traditional lines than on this 1993 30’ Rosborough Destiny Ketch. This was the last wood vessel Rosborough ever built before moving to fiberglass hulls. Built by Rosborough Boats up in Murphy’s Cove, Nova Scotia and the last one after 150 others were built starting in the 1940’s. The current owner sailed “Annie Laurie” from Halifax, Nova Scotia to Ft. Lauderdale, sometimes single handling and other times with crew. She has made many upgrades over the last 9 years and has had her bottom painted every year since purchase with no worm problems. The boat has been in brackish water most of her life and she shows in very good condition. This ketch sleeps 4 owners and guests on 1 double berth and 2 single berths. She has refrigeration, autopilot, air conditioning, opening ports and hatches, a large head area with new toilet and loads of storage capacity. Her teak and holly sole was recently varnished and has opening floor hatches to access the bilge. Her engine access is on 3 sides and runs great with only 2400 hours. She sports a rebuilt transmission and fuel pump, cabin heater, wheel steering, wide open cockpit and proper ground tackle. This sailing machine just returned from a 2 month cruise to the Bahamas and the owner has decided to move up in size. If this classic looking ketch is what you are looking for, call Barry at 954-873-1800 today and start your adventure.
