Cora Jean is a stunning 45ft (length on deck) by 14.3ft sailing yacht. She was built by her ship builder owner to Bruce Roberts Spray Issue No 420 A Plan. This was developed from Joshua Slocum’s yawl Spray, being the first yacht to sail around the world solo. Subsequently, Cora Jean is a sailing yacht that can travel the world with the comfort of being built with the highest quality materials and having self sufficient power on board. Like the other Sprays, Cora Jean has a perfectly balanced waterline so she does not need constant attention at the helm. She offers good speed in all winds and has a deep draft at 5’10” with a lead ballast.
Although the design has varying keel options the owner 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. As a result of this and a larger rudder, the owner believes Cora Jean sails better than her stablemates.
The vessel is constructed in steel and fitted with Burmese teak. The hull has been grit based both internally and externally then epoxy coated. She has a large Perkins 120hp engine with a Paragon 2:1 gearbox and 25” MaxProp feathering propeller. Electrics include a 3.5kw Onan diesel generator, 24v alternator from the engine, 2 x 12v alternators from the main engine, 2 x inverters, 60amp battery charger and 2 x wind generators which have been mouthed on the mizzen mast.
Internally, the quality of the vessel is evident with solid teak joinery throughout and is spacious enough to comfortably live aboard or spend long periods cruising. There are 4 berths with 2 double berths within 2 separate cabins. Both of these cabins have Taylors diesel fired heaters. The saloon has an Italian finished L shaped settee, a teak drop leaf dining table as well as ample storage. The galley is fully equipped with 2 x induction hobs, electric oven, Panasonic microwave oven, twin stainless steel sinks, fridge, freezer and again, ample storage. 2 x bathrooms on board which are both ensuite. The wheelhouse had a watertight door that separates it from the saloon. The houses the helm and engine controls, chart area and bench seating. This room is heating by a radiator run off the engine cooling circuit.
Cora Jean has a ketch rig with aluminium masts spars, twin spreader masts stepped within tabernacles for easier lowering, self tackling inner headsail with aluminium boom, heavy duty stainless steel standing rigging, slab reefing with lazy jacks, spare halyards, new stack bags and sail covers. In terms of winches, there are: Lewmar 40 self tailing mainsheet winch, Barient 32 self tailing primary winches, Lewmar 40 self tailing, Barlow 25, Herken 48.3 and 48.2, Barlow 20.

There are also sail storage lockers on the foredeck and within bimini.
Navigational equipment includes: Sestral compass, Cetrek Pilot 750 autopilot, Cetrek Chartnav 390 GPS/Chartplotter, Cobra DSC VHF radio, navigation lights.
The ground tackle on board includes: 5 x anchors, dual heavy duty brass anchor rollers at the bowprit, Maxwell 250 2,500lb pull power electric anchor windless, manual stern anchor winch.

BUYERS & SELLERS
When you buy a boat from us you pay all monies in to our company clients trust account which means that the buyers and sellers money is protected. This is the same account that solicitors set up for house sales .This money does not belong to the company it belongs to the buyer until the sale is complete and then we pay the seller from the company clients trust account. We cannot release the money from the Clients Trust Account to the seller until the vessel has been accepted and handed over to the buyer because if there was a fault with the vessel and the buyer refused to accept it and wanted their money back we could not do this because the seller would of already had the money. This could become a very costly and messy problem for all parties.
This money never enters our company current account. This also means that we cannot use customers money for other purchases/reasons. If at any point the company went bust then the buyers/sellers money is safe and it would go back to the rightful owner of the money.
We have had this company clients trust account set up from day one to protect our customers money. This account is a secure holding account. We pay the seller monies due from this account when the buyer has signed to accept the vessel.
