The DRUMBEAT is an early Bruce Roberts design based on Captain Joshua SlocumĀ“s SPRAY.  She was built by Al Ferguson and at this writing is lying in the waters of the Rio Dulce, Guatemala.  The DRUMBEAT has always drawn a lot of attention where ever she has taken us.  We feel that she is an unusual and interesting boat.  In an attempt to answer the many questions that have been asked and to take the pleasure of showing you around, we have provided this web site.
If you have any questions or would like to correspond with us, we can be reached at

Truly yours, The Captain and the crew of the DRUMBEAT.
