Owner's Comments

We have owned Wild Rose for 33 years, continually restoring and rebuilding and upgrading her.
She is a wonderful sailing boat, comfortable and quiet without violent motion.
We have sailed Wild Rose from Long Beach, California, to Panama since 2010.
We transited the Panama Canal in 2014.
You may have noticed her interior is not typical of Robb 35 interiors but has been redesigned
for more storage and comfort.   All the photos are current – taken in November 2017.
My wife and I prepared her to sail in 2017, but our plans changed.  Thus, she is ready to sail now.
