Bruce entered the marine industry and for several years operated a boat yard in Brisbane where he completed an informal boatbuilding apprenticeship. In 1968 Bruce founded BRUCE ROBERTS INTERNATIONAL YACHT DESIGN in partnership with Andrew Slorach … Andy is still involved in the business. In 1972 Bruce opened his first “International design office” in the USA.
