Roshika is a fast and comfortable boat to sail. She is easily single-handed in under 25 knots of wind, and she often surprises/outsails many modern "faster" sailboats. With a big 155% Genoa she goes well in light air, but also has a wonderful ride in a seaway/high winds. Earlier this fall in 15 knots of wind we were close hauled doing 6.5 knots, and as we cracked off onto a reach we averaged 8 knots while having a great time.

The primary jib/Genoa winches are bronze selftailing, and the main has a new Harken 5-1 sheeting system that makes handling very easy. The primary self tailing winches are easily reached from the helm. She has lazyjacks and a "tides track" system on the mast so raising and lowering the main can be done with one hand. She handles well at any speed, and will ghost along in light airs or blast along when it's blowing! There are no running back or check stays to deal with, which makes handling her that much easier.

She has a wonderful interior with lots of varnished mahogany, velvet and bronze and is very comfortable both above and below decks and would make a great day sailor or cruising boat that would be the talk of the harbor everywhere you go.

2/13/06 Status Update: It's time to get ready for another season. She is still looking great after all of last years work, and she got a number of updates over the course of the season. A new Balmar 80 amp alternator and smart regulator, 2 new Rule bilgepumps and float switches, and more. Last spring she has new bottom, topsides, and cabin paint, as well as 8 coats of varnish on all the brightwork. I rebedded and refastened all the deck hardware and stanchions, cleaned the diesel and water tanks, tuned the engine and greased the winches. By all accounts she is in great cosmetic and structural shape. She is a turn key proposition ready to sail or motor just about anywhere. She will turn heads in any harbor, sails wonderfully and looks great. Please call or email for more information and to schedule a viewing.
