Bruce Roberts 42ft Spray for sale. Here is a very interesting opportunity to acquire a part completed Pilot House Gaff Ketch Rig Spray. The vessel is built in steel with fully assembled hull and deck which features a Pilot house. The hull was constructed in 2009 and remained inside a boat shed within a Nottingham based boat yard as a potential project that sadly never completed.
The hull and deck are in super condition having been stored inside, she has been fully insulated. The rig is intended as a gaff rig ketch with beautiful hand made wooden mast and spars which are supplied. The rig has been designed by James Byam Shaw of Maldon and sails and rigging (which need to be purchased) are all measured and ready to be made by Jeckells sailmakers if required.. The boat is currently fitted with a Ford Thornycroft 2700 (80HP) Engine. This has approximately 100 engine hours and was reclaimed from another vessel, however the owner may be able to supply a different engine if required. A bow thruster has partly been installed, and part of the hydraulic steering system is also installed (please see photos). Window frames have also been crafted, Some interior panelling has been installed too (see photos).
There is a list of additional equipment suited to the vessel which can be purchased by separate negotiation. A list is available upon request.
The vessel has an EU Declaration of Conformity and design and construction assessment for category A (ocean) but a full RCD will need to be obtained when the vessel is complete.
In the brokers opinion, we believe the end result once the build is completed could be a beautiful Bruce Roberts Spray, the overall colour scheme combined with the varnished wood mast are sure to make this an attractive yacht which will turn heads wherever she goes. Her volumous hull will provide a light and spacious interior, and her shallow draft will allow her to explore
