FOR SALE:
SPRAY 40 FIBERGLASS.

Hull deck & superstructure with much of the fit-out included and a stack of equipment including the engine etc.  Here is what the owner has to say:

This is more than a hull:  - It’s a beautifully constructed replica of Joshua Slocum's Spray. The decks, bulkheads and some of the interior cabinetry are completed to a high standard. 

This boat has been built to exacting specifications, with precision and expert advice. We have lovingly crafted this sailboat but, regretfully, we are unable to complete it due to health issues. It is currently housed in a pole building in NE Ohio, has always been protected from the elements, and has been very well-cared-for and it's definitely worth a look!  Definitely a great buy at $12,000 !

FOR SALE Roberts 34 

Bruce Roberts 34  steel -  34 foot long, 10 foot beam, 6 foot  draft.

If you are looking for a used steel boat this is the best buy you can make I myself  am a toolmaker  I built the boat myself in 1983. At that time I did all the research possible to protect the steel hull and deck from corrosion , inside and outside.  When the hull was completely  welded I let it rust a little bit to get a good mechanical adhesion from the paint to the steel.

Inside and outside were well sandblasted and the inside of the boat had a coat of paint that would accept the a high density polyurethane foam that would accept

less than one percent of moisture.  All inside was sprayed like that from the top down to the keel within about eight inches.  The outside, after sandblasting

was coated with hot zinc spray and then  given a proper paint job of All-grip paint. All of the steps taken above is evident today for how it stood up to the elements.

The equipment on board is:

Electric winch,  38hpVolvo diesel with 90 hours running time, a monitor wind vane, vhf radio.  The boat was rewired seven years ago and equipped  with: Auto pilot, a whole new battery charging system, satellite navigation, ray marine radar,  navigation screen in the cockpit that has the capability of superimposing the  radar onto the navigation screen with c-pac navigation chip, Four years ago I installed a stainless steel arch to accommodate a solar panel and  wind vane to generate electricity to support power to all electronic equipment while under sail.  The boat is in good condition and was appraised 2 years ago.

Centennial  SPRAY 38 - round bilge steel.

Hi Bruce,

Now, unfortunately the time has come when I must put my loved Kermit for sale, and I would be happy to have him at your brokerage page.

Spray certainly need no further presentation, but I must say that it is a fantastic design in every way. She sails extremely well and stable and can be loaded into virtually any amount.


Kermit is a round bilge steel Centennial Spray 38, built in Sweden (finished 2009) to the highest standard when it comes to both materials and construction and by the best craftsmen. The result is a top class interior, made of solid oak and pine and in a design that matches well the boat in general. The boat is intended for blue water cruising and living onboard. I enclose two pictures but there are many more.

The boat is lying in Stockholm, Sweden. For more information and a more complete description don’t hesitate to contact me at Sverker.H@spray.se  or +46730555526.

Asking 1 995 000 SEK (about 220 000 Euro), but will listen to any offer!

Best regards, Sverker Hagberg 

PS. I would be happy if these two pictures could be used in the ad. More pictures to be send in next couple of mails. DS.

Hi, Bruce! Our lovely R-38 Ketch - Donna's Diamond - has been sold.  Thanks for helping! I think her new owner is going to love this boat, as we did.  She is sound and ready to go!

Once again, thanks for your help!    And thanks for one fantastic boat! Regards Dennis Fria

Hi, Bruce!   Well, the time has come for us to sell our much beloved Offshore 38B  Ketch.  Donna's Diamond was launched in 1992 and we have sailed her to the  Bahamas from Texas twice, plus lots of offshore races and other fun.   She is a superb vessel and we love her dearly.  It breaks my heart to  sell her, but I need to do so ASAP.  Your son Dane has been a friend and a huge help through the years, and I helped  him sell at least one BR design several years ago (I used to own  Mustang Island Yachts, but recently sold the company).

Scorcey was sold to John Sterling of southern California two months ago. He intends to keep her somewhere in Mexico on the west coast.  It is currently at Ortega landing in Jacksonville Florida while I train him on all of her systems. 

Janet, my wife, and I lived on Scorcey a 620 for nine and a half years and loved every minute.  If anyone wants a sunset or sunrise picture we probably have over a thousand.

Subject: Re: SPRAY 28 listing

Well our boat has sold and I need to post this on the Bruce Roberts' sight under our 28ft Spray SOLD!  Thanks.  Pat Muller

Boat is lying in Wisconsin and has only been used in fresh water.  She is currently sitting on a triaxle trailer which will convey with the boat.

The Spray 28 is a wonderful, trailable pocket cruiser.  She has the space and stability of a much larger boat with the ability to go most anywhere.  Thousands of Sprays have been built world wide and their owners love them.  If you are considering a true, go-anywhere, small cruising sailboat you must consider the Spray 28, and “Gypsy” is a fine example.

FOR SALE BY BUILDER.

NOW SOLD.

Hi Bruce,  My late brother’s boat has sold.  Thanks so much for all you kindness and consideration during a very trying time for us.  You are one in a zillion, you know.  Thanks heaps. Felicity ...   Felicity Smith

HELP - BOAT FOR SALE - CAN YOU HELP!

Hi there Bruce, this is drawing a REALLY long bow but I wonder if you can help us at all. 

I live just outside Brisbane, my sister-in-law in Windhoek Namibia.  My brother died suddenly a few months ago.  His UK registered ketch Siobhan is lying at anchor in Luderitz.  My brother had just left Cape Town having refitted the yacht for extended cruising and was on his way up the coast to pick up my sister-in-law but then his liver failed and he died.  The problem is I am in Australia, Antje knows nothing about boats and we can’t get the boat back to Cape Town because the weather windows just aren’t there at this time of year.  There are no brokers in Namibia and the yacht is in a big open bay.

This is probably just silly writing to you like this, but I thought I would give it a shot, we feel so lost.  Kind regards, Felicity Smith.


Bruce,

"Clarity" is finally sold and my wife is happily investing the proceeds in our new home!  "Clarity" will winter-over in Deale, MD; then she will sail to her new home in Muskegon, Michigan.

Please remove from your website, or mark it sold if you prefer. I want to thank you for your consistent responsive support throughout both the building and more recently, the process of finding her a new home. The entire adventure has been fun, rewarding, and fulfilling for me. I am and will remain a true advoCATAMARANe of your designs, your service to your
followers, and of you, Bruce.

If I can ever return the many favors, perhaps in the way of an experienced advoCATAMARANe, I would consider it an honor and privilege. Also if you and yours ever travel through western North Carolina, Teresa and I would feel honored to have you here for a layover.  By the way, I would also like to make you aware that the professional broker I worked with, Mr. Nick Dykert of Denison Yacht Sales in Ft Lauderdale, has become quite knowledgeable about Clarity, about steel, and about, perhaps most importantly, the human psychology of boat building. He has mentioned that he wants to pursue specialization in similar 'project boats'.  It occurs to me that the two of you should be aware of each other, for future reference.  For what its worth, I found his work to be professional, attentive, trustworthy, consistent, and thorough. Happy sailing always! Bill Russell
