Very rare Bruce Roberts design Spray 28 gaff sloop. This is a design based upon the famous ‘Spray’ sailed by Joshua Slocum, the first person to sail and circumnavigate the world in 1895. Many sailers dream of owning an old gaffer but shy away due to the work involved with owning a wooden boat. My boat however has the great advantage of having a grp hull. She is 28ft.10 inches long plus bowsprit. A wide beam of 10ft.6inches means a very stable craft with lots of room internally. There are two cabins and 3berths that could be increased. A lovely galley area with gimbled as new cooker, double sink unit, lots of cupboards. Seperate heads compartment with sink, sea flush pump toilet. Pumped water. There is a cosy solid fuel burning stove for those chilly days or evenings. Brass lamps make for a cosy glow in a very cosy cabin. Strip lights in the galley area. Chart table in the first cabin with one berth to starboard. There is a large storage area aft which could be converted to a fourth berth. The fwd cabin has a folding large table with stove. There is a single berth on each side. Lots of stowage with access to a large foc’s’le. Hatches in both cabins. The auxiliary power comes from a 40 hp 4 cylinder Ford diesel on shaft drive. Updated charging system. Two heavy duty batteries. Steps up to the cockpit area which is self draining. Instruments include vhf, log, navigation. Rigged as a gaff sloop, there are two jibs, mainsail and top sail. Most control lines run aft to the cockpit for single handed sailing. All in superb order. The mast and boom are aluminium to ease maintainance. With the wide beam there is a large deck area . Two anchors with chain. A superb go any where character vessel which any one would be proud to own. Registered at 7 tons. Moored Essex. I will consider power or sail boats, cars or what have you in part exchange. Private sale.The mooring could be available by negotiation with the yard owner. Fees are paid up to date. My phone number is 07770 792454.
