Spirit is the real deal. She will take you anywhere in the world where you have 7 feet of water under you and nothing blocking your mast 70 feet above you. On board, she offers the comfort of a small waterfront condo, but she is not rooted to the ground. Her galley offers every modern convenience except a dishwasher ( you) and a garbage disposal. Her main salon includes two comfortable settee's and a custom made table with storage for crystal beneath it. At each corner is an NFT loudspeaker with a Polk sub-woofer below. There are two large overhead hatches and there are windows all around. She is serviced by a Wabasto diesel heater ( as is the whole boat) and partially cooled by permanent AC. There is an extra portable service unit. Aft she has a king sized double mattress with cedar lined hanging storage and drawers. Her aft head is electric and her shower is fed by 3 aluminiium water tanks connected together with stainless steel tubing.
There is alot more but back to the headline. There is magic in the open ocean. Sunrises and sunsets, the night sky away from land lights, even the occasionaly meteor shower. There is bio-luminescence which will leave a trail of stars in your wake. You might even run into a school of glowing squids who will then rain down your bow wave onto your deck making you feel that you have boarded your own space ship. Then, too, there is the fun of making port and making new friends along the dock who each of come from somewhere else looking for adventure and loving the sea.
If any of this appeals to you and you have the experience and skill to manage a seemingly large vessel, then Spirit will favorably compare with anything on the market at this time. "Seeming large" is certainly true in the harbor, but once you are a mile or two off shore, she is the right size for long range cruising which include living on board.
