Over 500 Spray 22s have already
been completed and we have received many favourable reports from the various owners. One
example was built at our Marine Park in Australia and rigorously tested; these reports are
included in Bruce's book "Spray. The Ultimate Cruising Boat". This well proven
small Spray can be built in either a Multi-Chine Hull shape with Steel, Aluminium or Wood
Epoxy utilising sheet ply, or in Round Bilge with Fibreglass (C-Flex or Airex Foam). To the original gaff rig shown, we
have added a Bermudan sail plan as an alternative.
The full size boat plans come complete with trailer boat plans,
details folio, fully lofted frame patterns, all construction details and our full back up
advice service should you need while building.
There are over 5,000 Sprays already sailing
world wide plus over 1,000 currently being built from our boat plans and STEEL OR ALUMINUM PLANS & CUTTING FILES. 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.
After several builders asked
for a trailerable stretched version of the Spray 22, we produced the Spray 27.....This
boat is incredibly popular ... over 300 sailing world-wide. There are two basic
layouts - either regular or pilot house - and either can be rigged with a gaff sail plan
or as a Bermudan sloop. Both regular Trunk cabin and Pilot
house versions for each material - STEEL, ALUMINUM, FIBERGLASS & WOOD EPOXY as applicable to the particular boat plan - with up the boat plans.
Gaff sloop shown above. Bermudian Sloop & Junk rig also included with boat plans & study boat plans.
Hi, I received the boatboat plans last week, I was
almost overwhelmed by all the information, but/and it looks great: I
will study it more carefully when I have some time off from work, and then I
will come back to you with more feedback and questions. Best regards,
SPRAY 22 OWNER - Seeking extra information.
Hi Bruce and Andrew, Thanks very much for the
information and plans you attached. I'm astounded by such a rapid and
comprehensive response! Have a good Easter,

Here are the three views of the
Spray 22; deck plan and profile plan show the attractive forward end of the
cabin; we have seen this feature on some completed boats and it looks great. The accommodation as designed
allows for generous sitting headroom; a pop top arrangement over the main
hatchway in the area of the galley allows for full standing headroom in that

The Spray 22 is easily trailerable and
although we do not recommend this boat as long distance voyager; many Spray
22's have made some interesting passages.
Aluminum is one option to build the Spray 22;
here is a nice example being built in Europe; more on this boat is our

Hi, Here are some of the pictures from the weekend , We
had a slip for 5 days and made the most of it. We did raise the mast up and
a jib and we took her sailing, it handle really well. the winds must of been
around 20 kmh and we had good speed ... The little engine pushes her at 10
kmh . it is vary quick to respond whether it be under sail or power. I
couldn't be more please. everything worked as it should and for a small boat
its vary stable. lots of good comments from other boat owners.
Unfortunately we had to take her back out. That was a little depressing. We
are going to paint her up now and finish all the rigging and hardware.

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Patrick Slevin and I have been an
avid Spray fan for many years. Having just recently acquired access to the Internet
through work (hence the email address), My first web-site visit was to yours.
I purchased a set of boat plans from you in May 1985 for a timber Spray 22 which I
proceeded to build with much assistance from my father.
The boat was launched on 4th November 1989 in the Huon river south of Hobart, and until
now has been kept in various ports in southern Tasmania.
I have recently moved to Melbourne, Victoria for work and have relocated my boat
to a yacht harbour in Westernport Bay. I thought you might
find it interesting that my Spray 22 is not alone there as there are two others located at
the same marina. One built from steel and the other is fibre glass. As yet I
have not been in contact with the owners but intend to do so as summer rolls around.
For three boats of the same design, built from three different materials, it is surprising
how they all differ as each owner/builder has their own ideas etc. for example there
are three slightly different rigs, the
portholes are all different, the steel version appears to have wider decks and a deeper
cockpit. I have also come across a fourth Spray22 built in steel and she is based at
Smithton on the northwest coast of Tasmania.
I am looking forward to hearing from you and of some information on the Spray 22's being
posted on the Spray home page.
Hopefully once summer gets here I may be able to obtain photos of three of these boats out
sailing together and will pass these on.
Regards Patrick Slevin
The Spray 22 accommodation shown in this photo
was built to our boat plans but of course you can customize the interior to suit
