A trustworthy aluminum ketch for voyaging, St. Roque embodies a functional utilitarianism and time-proven cruising features. The Owner's brief called for a durable yacht capable of exploring high-altitude cruising grounds while looking after her crew in the process. New England Boatworks' many years of expertise in aluminum construction resulted in a tough hull, deck, and structure for St. Roque. Key to the project's design is an all-weather pilothouse from which the Owner and crew can sail the yacht and keep watch while protected from the elements. St. Roque has voyaged far and gained admirers along the way for her no-nonsense construction and NEB's realization of the Owner's dream of a rugged world-cruising vessel.
