Broker's Comments

This Bruce Roberts Spray 40A is a very interesting project boat. The hull was started in 1999 and completed in 2018 but the rigs, engine and instruments have been fitted and the boat was launched in 2019.

The boat lacks the interior which at this stage of near completion makes her a very interesting project. Her propulsion, rigging and navigation/safety equipment is already fitted and we believe in in full working order, however to allow for any accommodation the boat still needs to be fitted inside.

This project is a fantastic opportunity for anyone who has their own vision of their dream boat layout on a very much new boat without the cost of a custom newly built boat.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
