The Voyager 495-2 is an offshore passage making performance cruiser available in both fin keel and full keel configurations. She is based on our extremely successful Roberts 532 but executed in a slightly shorter length. The Voyager 495-2 has all space and performance of our Roberts 532 but is less length which resulst in a easier handled cruising sailboat for both shorthanded and fully crewed cruising.
The layout of the Voyager 495 centers around the low profile pilothouse, which is the main gathering space in the arrangement. There are forwarth & aft double berth staterooms both with adjoining heads and showers. A third stateroom with upper and lower berths round out the arrangement. The galley is situated down from the pilothouse and a settee is located opposite providing a comfortable space for eating and cooking. As with any of our kits, the arrangement can be custom tailored to suit your needs.
The Voyager 495 hullform is based on our extremely successful radius chine hull as we have used in our Roberts 53 and Roberts 434. Radius chine hulls provide the best of both multichine and round bilge hulls. They are easy to assemble while retaining the good looks and hydrodynamic properties of a fully- round bilge hull. As in all Bruce Roberts radius chine kits, the radius chine hull plate come pre-rolled form our cutting shop to further reduce assembly time. The Voyager 495-2 is available is both a fin keel/skeg hung rudder underbody and a long keel with an attaché rudder. The coice is Yours!
As with all of Bruce Roberts Design’s sailboat kits the Voyager 495-2 is structurally designed to meet or exceed ABS’s requirements for offshore racing yachts and motor pleasure yachts. She is available as CNC cutting files or delivered as a steel or aluminum pre-cut package.
