Built in 1991 by Nautor Swan to design by German Frers, SPIRIT is a beautiful 26.6-meter sailing yacht, perfectly suited for all yachtsmen.
After a refit in 2014 by Yachting Developments, located in New Zealand, SPIRIT is more vibrant than ever. The refit’s key concept was to create a more modern look while retaining the yacht’s strong sea-going abilities, safety, solid cruising performance and reputation from a quality builder.
The work included removal of the aft deck and cockpit the addition of a new cockpit seating arrangement under a semi-fixed Bimini and the addition of twin wheels in place of the original single wheel. A new, larger, owners cabin was installed aft and accommodations on board increased with the addition of a new guest cabin in the forward sail stow area. All interior spaces were refitted. The yacht was completely rewired and received a twin generator, a full repaint and brand new sails. Skillful use of composite enabled an overall weight reduction of five tonnes, resulting her extra speed and manoeuvrability when underway.
SPIRIT now is able to accommodate up to 10 guests in four comfortable staterooms. She runs with three crew members. She offers an open layout plan and alfresco living in her cockpit area. SPIRIT is a sleek and contemporary yacht, ideal for families.
