The Voyager 655 is an offshore passage making performance cruiser with a full keel configuration. She is based on our extremely successful Roberts NY 65 but with a revised hull form similar to the hull used in our Voyager 495-2 . Her styling is based on the Voyager 495-2, but we have used some styling cues from very pretty Roberts NY 65. The Voyager 655 has more space and performance than the Roberts NY 65 due to her longer waterline length and she will be easily handled cruising sailboat for both shorthanded and fully crewed cruising.
The layout of the Voyager 655 centers on the low profile pilothouse, which is the main gathering space in the arrangement. The galley is situated down from the pilothouse and a settee is located opposite providing a comfortable space for eating and cooking. Currently there are various arrangements for the staterooms of the Voyager 655. All arrangements can be customs tailored to suit your needs.
The Voyager 655 hull form is based on extremely successful radius chine hull as we have used in our Voyager 495-2 and the Roberts 53’s 434’s. Radius chine hulls provide the best of both multi chine 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 our radius chine kits, the radius chine hull plates come pre-rolled from our cutting shop to further reduce assembly time.
The Voyager 655 is structurally designed to meet or exceed ABS’s requirements for pleasure yachts. She is available as CNC cutting files or delivered as a steel or aluminum pre-cut package.
