Gratis is a solid fibre glass pilot house 48ft Roberts Spray, based on Joshua Slocum’s famous original. Gratis has a displacement of 18 tons, beam of 14’6”, and is rigged as a mast head cutter with twin fore sails for downwind legs. Undertaking her third world trip, Gratis is a comfortable home, especially in some of the ugliest seas.
