This Bruce Robert spray 42 is one of the finest examples of a Slocum Spray ever built. 

Solid does not begin to describe this ship and it's very sturdy hull, built by OL Sylvester in South Africa to handle the rough waters off Cape Town and the African coast. 

Heritage has made her way across the Atlantic and Pacific oceans and is now looking for new owners to continue the adventure.

The original cruiser is made for exploring, and in heritage you will find a ship without equal, a boat to get you to any harbour in style and comfort.

The history, the woodwork and the finishing touches add together to bring a ton of charm without sacrificing the amenities.

With all the equipment on board, she is ready to sail away across oceans or the islands.

The second you step on board you can see that all owners of heritage have taken Immaculate care of her.

The centre-cockpit design allows for a safe, comfortable and convenient sailing.

Walking into the salon you are greeted by an open area space with nice air flow through all the windows vents and hatches.

The salon can accommodate 7 comfortably and can sleep three with new upholstery in 2019.

The U- shape galley allows for easy cooking while underway, with ample storage and work space. 

The workshop to the right of the galley is well organised in addition to housing all the tools needed for repairs.

The V-berth at the bow slips to within an ensuite head with shower, toilet and hand basin.

The V-berth also has tonnes of storage as well as access to the anchor locker and extra sails.

Leading aft you pass through the navigation station which has all the charts, radios, electronics and electrical panel for the ship.

With easy access to the engine room via the nav. passageway there is plenty of room to work on the engine. Access is also available via the workshop, giving you every angle on the engine.

In the aft, there is a huge captains quarters with a queen size bed, lounging settee and ensuite head and shower

There are two closets as well as six large hatches in the aft cabin for all storage needs.

Owner’s comment: “The builder of Heritage has thought every aspect of sailing and what a ship needs for easy, comfortable living. 

Heritage has been our home and our life for the last three years and while it will be bittersweet to say goodbye we want to share the adventure that she has bestowed upon us on to you. Come take a look! I guarantee you won't walk away disappointed.”
