    Built by her shipwright owner over nineteen years and launched in 2006, this is a craft that benefits from all the many years experience that her owner has gained building boats. 


    "Cora Jean" was built to cruise the world comfortably, safely and self sufficiently with ample power supplied by her diesel generator and two wind generators.

    This is an extra deep draft version of the boat which the owner built to lower the centre of gravity and substantially reduce leeway.

    Built only using the finest materials (high tensile steel and Burmese teak), this fine yacht is perfect for those looking for a comfortable live aboard with long term cruising in mind.

    Please see the following comprehensive details for a lot more information.

    If you would like to arrange to see "Cora Jean", please call Peter on - Click here to reveal phone number - r email - Click to contact - to arrange an appointment. The owner is more than willing to meet those seriously interested and explain fully as to how the boat was built.

    Owner's Comments


    "Cora Jean" was built to Bruce Roberts Spray Issue No 420 A Plan, developed from Joshua Slocum's yawl "Spray, which was the first yacht to sail solo around the world. Slocum's book has never been out of publication and is reprinted every year with all Spray's line drawings and an evaluation by naval architects of her design.

    "Cora Jean" like the other Sprays, has a perfectly balanced waterline so she nearly always sails herself and does not need constant attention at the helm. She offers good speed in all winds, very low heeling angle, huge deck space and big interior space. "Cora Jean" being built of steel, is strong and I fitted her with a large engine. 

    The design has varying keel options and I opted to draw the keel down further and again, in regard to the fore foot, to lower the centre of gravity to reduce leeway. This was done after talking to owners and constructors of Sprays. I have kept the the bought plans and have drawn the deepened keel on them. As a result of this and a larger rudder, i believe "Cora Jean" sails better than her stablemates. Her deep draught is still only 5'10", still not excessive. The ballast is of lead.

    There are many thousands of Sprays around the world, both factory and home completed using different materials. Many circumnavigations have been documented and various books written. There are loads of owner's adventures on YouTube.

    "Cora Jean", like the others, is a brilliant sail boat. If you are interested in buying her I will be more than happy to take you out for a sail in any weather - you are most welcome to be impressed!
