Roxanne is a 60 aluminum-hulled cruiser with fiberglass/foam composite deck and carbon fiber hard dodger designed for speed and comfortable passages. When the vessel was a developing concept in her owner's head, her designer Tom Wylie asked the owner what he wanted in a boat. The answer:A fast, fun boat with no bad habits. She indeed embodies those traits and, after 23 years of cruising and living aboard, the owner's not-so-skilled-at-sailing wife can also add this:What I like most about Roxanne is her forgiving response to my sailing lapses.Built to be a full-time floating home for the owners and their two sons, Roxanne has been sailed extensively and rapidly throughout the north and south Pacific since departing San Francisco in 2000. Before she departed in 2000, she made her first blue water passage in the 1998 Pacific Cup, when her owner and one other crewmember raced her from San Francisco to Hawaii and missed beating the double-handed record, which still stands in 2019, by less than 30 minutes. What you'll notice first are her clean lines with reverse sheer, stylish hull side windows, hard dodger with open/close canvas top and roomy cockpit. Even when she's not moving, she looks fast! Give her wind, though, and she slices through the water and makes swift passages averaging 200 nautical miles per day.

Roxanne is a 60’ aluminum-hulled cruiser with fiberglass/foam composite deck and carbon fiber hard dodger designed for speed and comfortable passages.
When the vessel was a developing concept in her owner’s head, her designer Tom Wylie asked the owner what he wanted in a boat. The answer: “A fast, fun boat with no bad habits!” She indeed embodies those traits and, after 23 years of cruising and living aboard, the owner’s not-so-skilled-at-sailing wife can also add this: “What I like most about Roxanne is her forgiving response to my sailing lapses.” Built to be a full-time floating home for the owners and their two sons, Roxanne has been sailed extensively and rapidly throughout the north and south Pacific since departing San Francisco in 2000. Before she departed in 2000, she made her first blue water passage in the 1998 Pacific Cup, when her owner and one other crewmember raced her from San Francisco to Hawaii and missed beating the double-handed record, which still stands in 2019, by less than 30 minutes.
What you’ll notice first are her clean lines with reverse sheer, stylish hull side windows, hard dodger with open/close canvas top and roomy cockpit. Even when she’s not moving, she looks fast! Give her wind, though, and she slices through the water and makes swift passages averaging 200 nautical miles per day.
With a watertight 11’ forepeak and 18’ engine compartment astern, weight was kept out of her ends. Her lengthy waterline and light displacement makes her responsive in light wind. An added advantage of her light displacement is that loads are reduced on her rig, running gear and crew (even short-handed crew). A hundred gallons (400 litres) of fresh water can be transferred between port and starboard outboard tanks for additional stability. All through-hulls, with exception of knot log and depth transducer, are hard-plumbed with aluminum pipe above water line. Anchor locker is deck accessible with room for secondary Danforth anchor, rode, snubbers and buoys. Forepeak has primary chain rode receptacle and generous space for asymmetrical spinnaker, dive tanks, staysail, storm jib, dock lines, sheets, buoys and assorted boat toys. Interior is simple painted surfaces with minimal wood trim. Cabinet doors have lockable push button latches. Storage available beneath bunks, cabin sole and settee. Interior can be heated with diesel hydronic unit which is plumbed with baseboard units, heated towel rack and forced air in the salon. Hullside windows and overhead hatches let in daylight and combined with neutral interior create bright, open appearance in main salon. Nav station has double stools with rotating C-arms which support the occupant on either tack. (stools and settee covered in blue leather) Galley is U-shaped, enabling stability in raucous seaways—Corian countertops have high fiddles to grab, functional midline sink position, gimbled stove and tambour cabinets that slide up and close (like a roll top desk). Fresh water (delivered via pressure pump) and salt water (delivered via foot pump) empty into deep double basin stainless sinks. Microwave and customized clear acrylic fruit/veg bins, holed for air circulation, are mounted on port shelf. Ample space is available in top loading fridge and freezer. Forward cabin has generous sleeping space for 2 adults, expansive counter area atop shelving, zippered gym bags (which slide into track mounted on bulkhead) and hanging locker. Double hatches over bed provide breeze for sleepers. Large, single head with stainless sink has retractable shower hose, under-counter Maytag twin-tub washer and adjacent holding tank. Heated stainless towel rack mounted on bulkhead. Starboard aft-cabin has double berth with adjustable angle pipe cot, hanging wet locker, cabinet with shelves and 2 zippered gym bags (which slide into track mounted on bulkhead). Counter top currently mounted with 26” digital television. Port aft cabin has single berth with pipe cot above, storage shelves, 1 zippered “First Out” bag (which slides into track mounted on bulkhead), EPIRB and access to midline battery compartment. Currently, port aft cabin serves as pantry with strap-down bins for storage. Both aft cabins are at Station 7 (least motion underway making for most comfortable sleeping areas). Large, comfortable cockpit with hard dodger which has battened canvas top that slides forward on tracks, allowing in fresh air and light. Instrument pod sits to port with 2 full-function displays, 12V outlet and plug for autopilot remote. On starboard is chart plotter/radar and command mike for VHF. Steering station has 5-foot wheel and binnacle-mounted compass. Engine instruments and throttle to starboard of wheel. Hydropilot panel is to port of wheel. Main traveler, winch and hydraulic control panel are mounted just forward of wheel on alloy island (image 6, right pic). Beneath steering station is storage for 2 outboard fuel tanks, 2 jerry jugs, dinghy anchor, dinghy wheels and assorted cleaning necessities. Aft of wheel is hatch-accessed lazarette which has two 9-kilo LPG bottles, drawer for snorkeling gear and room for additional items such as BBQ, fishing supplies and hoses. Flexi-teak covered swim step has latchable life raft locker, folding swim ladder and retractable hot/cold shower head. Robust roller for stern anchor mounted to port.
Engine room (18 feet long) is accessible through large hatches port and starboard in cockpit, allowing for exceptional access to both sides of main engine. Soft patch above engine allows easy removal. Genset is mounted midline aft of engine. To starboard is watermaker, tool box, stainless water heater and electrical panel. To port is refrigeration compressor and daytank. Steering quadrant, cables and auto-pilot drive are easily accessed.
