Details
A fantastic opportunity to purchase a well proven true bluewater cruising yacht at a great price. The Spray 40 design has been successfully used by many long distance yachtsmen and this is not your standard Roberts Spray. Her flush rear deck with Clipper bow styling combining the spacious deck saloon make this a "stand out" vessel in her class. The builder has carefully thought out and improved on the Roberts plan to incorporate all the good features for a live-aboard long range cruising vessel. Her three cabin layout with separate owners cabin aft has accommodation for five or more adults in two doubles and single berths. The vessel has been set up for short handed sailing with twin headsail furlers and halyards leading back for cockpit operation. A fantastic opportunity to purchase a well proven true bluewater cruising yacht at a great price.
She has seen a complete osmosis treatment in 03-2015 that saw her get a full peel to the waterline, hot-vac heat treatment, re-laminating hull and rudder using vinyl ester resin and 725 double biaxle and chop strand mat.
