This 52ft Spray Pilothouse Ketch was designed by Nautical Architect Bruce Roberts and we understand that she was built in 2000 by a Foreman at Sunseeker and some Sunseeker components can be seen on the boat.
She is constructed with a 10mm steel hull (8mm on original designs ) and 8mm superstructure (6mm on designs) and the quality of the hull is evident to see.
Following a full inspection of the hull for rust we have given her primers, 2 mid coats and 3 top coats of Jotun Mastic, she has two coats of Jotun Seaforce antifoul below the waterline.
New Marleon seacocks have been fitted throughout and she was launched for the first time around December 2017.
I have started to modify and fit her out to a high standard for a Blue Water Cruising Yacht. (Or potential liveaboard) this includes house electrics, heating, mastervolt 3000w invertor / charger, 4 x 200am batteries, LED lights throughout and some plumbing.
4.5ton of ballast. There is no engine or stern gear.
A mast plus sails from a 44ft Cat is included(potentially to have adapted as mizzen mast) Additionally, selection of stainless steel rigging for the mizzen and the main believed to be from previous owners.
As the new owner with the vision to complete this Bruce Roberts 52 Ketch, if she is finished to a high standard, this yacht has the potential to be a very nice looking boat and could even be an investment.
Although time and money still needs to be spent finishing her, once complete she will be a very spacious yacht that could be lived on for long periods of time with plenty of storage for all your gear.
