Broker's Comments

This Bruce Roberts Spray is a rare find it has without doubt been constructed and maintained to a very high standard - the best one I have seen by a long way.
It is also a very capable Blue Water cruiser with pretty much all the inventory you would need to set sail over the horizon. The current owners from new are reluctantly selling due to ill health.
The accommodation is very suitable for living aboard with the Centre Cockpit layout she has a good sized Aft Cabin as well as the Saloon area containing an extensive Galley with lots of storage space.
The forward cabin has a single berth to port with a useful workshop area to starboard.
Take a look at all the details above plus the photographs. This boat is a serious proposition for anyone looking for a boat to go places.

These boat details are subject to contract.
