boat plans include Gaff rig
. Bermudian rig . Junk rig

NEW: TWO VERSIONS NOW AVAILABLE AS KITS - A & C.

KIT....BIGGER, BETTER  offshore cruising pilot house sail boat. The Spray 460 is longer plus the beam has been increased to maintain the proportional beam of the other proven Spray designs, this greatly increases the livable interior space and allows wider side decks. This boat sails more upright as is the case with the other Spray designs which rarely exceed 10 degrees of heel ... you family will love this feature.

There are over 5,000 Sprays already sailing world wide plus over 1,000 currently being built from our boat plans and kits. We have been willing to listen to every combination of idea's about this wonderful boat and several layouts have been drawn. Many of these features are interchangeable between the various versions.

This boat is designed in accordance with Lloyds  for category 1 (unrestricted operating / sailing area), which is much better than the EU and other Classification Societies and the  CE-A require. Complete stability calculations are included in the design package. All calculations are also cross referenced against ABS requirements to ensure that the design meets world-wide standards and specifications.

In the case of KITS, all plate parts belonging to the hull, deck and superstructure that are accurately cut to size are included. The parts are marked with the appropriate part number and engraved matching marking lines to assist in the assembly and location of the part in its position. Cutting method is Plasma / Oxygen, ensuring highest accuracy and smooth edges.
 
Plate parts are cut from Lloyds approved A Grade Shipbuilding quality STEEL that has been coated with factory applied Sigma weld MC welding primer.  We use and recommend steel plate that has the official designation ISO standard 10474 or EN 10204 with 3.1.B certificate.

Many of these Sprays have completed complete circumnavigations some more than once & usually with crews consisting only of two persons !
