Dear Sirs, We purchased your project of Centennial Spray 45
and my friend - Zihni Butuner,
built the beautiful Melissa1 in his factory - Tire Profil in Izmir Turkey.
(attached some photos).
She was finished and launced in 2007 and since then she is sailing in the Eagean and he is very happy with her. She is now in Teos Marina - Turkey. Thank you, Gideon Tur

There are over 5,000 Bruce
Roberts’ SPRAY SAILBOATS in service world-wide plus another 1,000
SPRAYS being built from our boat plans and patterns. We have been
willing to listen to YOUR ideas about this wonderful boat and several boat
plan layouts have been drawn with many features that are interchangeable
between the various versions.
The Centennial Sprays are designed for
building in Round bilge
steel or Wood/Epoxy, and can be rigged with a variety of sail
boat plans including a gaff schooner, Bmu cutter, junk rig etc. Custom sail boat plans and
additional accommodation layouts may be drawn to suit your requirements for
a reasonable fee.
Many of these Sprays have completed complete
circumnavigations some more than once &
usually with crews consisting only of two persons !

Hi Bruce, Finally we
had our first test sail on 3 of August. She handles great and we did
good speed in the light winds. (4-5 knots in 3-5 m/s wind). The rig is
hollow glass-fibre spars of our own construction.

BRUCE's COMMENTS: The builder
has customized his boat by adding a pilot house similar to the one that is
shown on our Spray 52 and several other Spray models. We agree that
the boat is a credit to Johan and Lise.
Centennial SPRAY 45
We ordered preliminary boat plans for
the Spray from Bruce and started adapting our layout to the 45 foot hull.
When Bruce released his round bilge version, the we were convinced this was
the perfect hull for us. The hull characteristics were a major for our
layout without compromising the sailing characteristics.
We sent our deck and cabin
layout to Bruce and contracted with him to do a set of drawings using them.
A wonderful thing happened when working with Bruce. We had originally drawn the deck
with a doghouse over the companionway. He, faithfully, had a doghouse in the
drawings that he did for us, but he also made a slightly different version
of the cabin which used a pilothouse with a steering station on a platform
on the starboard side. He sent this alternate design to us as a gift.
We so much like the idea of the open
pilothouse creating a bright open space out of the saloon and galley that we
adopted it. We were able to take the general
concept and implement it in the final design.

I can tell you my own impression of sailing
the Centennial Spray 45. I made a trip cross the Baltic sea.
herself really, just need to carefully put sails on right position. I did
not touch the steering wheel for more than 20 minutes, just look at compass. Excellent
performance, just nice. Thank you very much for smart design.
Best Regards, Victor V. Tchaburko
Dear Bruce, We have now built NINE steel boats to your boat plans.
One of the best things to happen to builders is when former customers
come back for another new boat. Yes the customer for whom we built a Robert 58 in 1998 has
ordered a new Spray Classic for delivery completed this year including the interior.
very proud and happy to build boats from your boat plans for people who have such a high
estimate of your design & my workmanship.

"Bruce, I and two Estonian master mariners
motored Mother of Perl to Vastervik, Sweden for sails and rigging and sailed her back to
Tallinn in the end of October. A truly great hull in every respect. We also barely touched
the steering and this was going straight downwind under sail. With a little
experience, I know that I could balance this boat on any point of sail. Fantastic! I'll
let you know more about our adventures with Mother of Perl as we travel this next few
years on both sides of the Atlantic and hopefully Pacific.... Regards Ben Smith"

My name is Gary. I had ordered two sets of boat plans for the Spray,
one in fiberglass, one in steel from you. I followed your recommendation and went
over to Sweden and arranged with Sven to build the Spray in tribute to my wife who had
passed away, There was a big write up in Sweden and the U, K. about the "Nancy
She's getting quite well known. We
stopped at the Azores and this whole family came running over to the "Nancy Ann"
They had pictures of her and had also heard about me. Am sending pictures of
"Nancy Ann" and my last discussion with Sven.
I feel that you should be kept well
informed of the history of the "Nancy Ann" as she's designed by you. Am
hoping that your enjoying your trip, your pictures will be waiting for you when you return
to the U.S.

|Bruce, We will be re-launching in
October so I'll gladly send some then.
I am 1.94 (6ft 4") - and
she was the first yacht I could walk around without banging my head - her
fitting out, and feel of quality was overpowering. To say both my wife and I
are still smiling - is an understatement. Best regards, Tim from Oman
