Built by the famed Nautor yard in Finland, she was delivered as Flawless in 1991.
Designed by German Frers SPIRIT is a unique custom yacht. Her hull is the same mould as the Swan 86 but extended and with a pilothouse.
During 2014 the vessel underwent a complete and thorough refit in New Zealand.
The cost of the complete refit, including new sails was in excess of 2.7 million US Dollars.
The aft cockpit / deck area was modified and modernised to provide a twin wheel set up and stern hydraulic swim stairs; the pilothouse was modernised and refitted (the wheel removed); the whole interior was completely redecorated and refurbished; the forward area was made into a good double guest cabin with ensuite; 2 new gensets, plus all equipment refitted or updated; hull painted; new sails; … and more!
She is Category 1 equipped (in preparation for the Sydney-Hobart 2014).
The rig & sail handling set up was upgraded for easier use.
Yet she retains her Swan pedigree inside and out with excellent performance and high quality fit out and engineering.
In June 2015 she had a haul out and annual service in Langkawi.
