About this Arthur Robb Yawl

Arthur Robb’s designs are notable by their balanced hull form, full forward graduating to lean aft; typically with a short doghouse forming the aft end of a low trunk cabin – ROB ROY matches this description perfectly!

In her current ownership ROB ROY has cruised and classic raced on both sides of the Atlantic eating up the miles, safely and effortlessly. The boat appears reassuringly original in feel, and honesty, almost hinting that the important things have not changed and her soul remains intact. It is probably the sign of a successful design that some boats look to be pressing forward even when tied to the dock - and ROB ROY has this in spades.
