Exploring the Accommodation & Deck Equipment of Spirit 65DH, SPIRIT OF JOSEPHINE
In a time when it is imperative to be kinder to our planet, SPIRIT OF JOSEPHINE delivers. Of WEST construction, the renewable properties of this method of construction are obvious and her decks are of ligna. On deck her beautiful dog house and other deck furniture is built of solid Sipo Mahogany and coated in Awlwood which has a life of 10 years. Of course, all this fantastic brightwork has covers to protect it from the weather when she is not in use.
Her sails were built by OneSails and are 4T FORTE which means that at the end of life they are intended to be recycled. In addition to her sail power, she has a couple of electric Ocean Volt SD15 ServoProp regenerating propulsion systems. Which means when wind powered speed through the water is 6 knots or above she will regenerate in excess of 1.5kw. into a 21kwh bank of Valance lithium ion batteries. For those dead calm passages on a deadline there is an in line 18Kw Fischer Panda generator which will charge the batteries significantly faster than the electric motors will draw down when motoring at 6 – 10 knots. .
SPIRIT OF JOSEPHINE provides carbon neutral yachting, as well as turning heads always.
Her interior is extremely special and bespoke. It provides a comfortable and special place in which to spend time. A glory of walnut joinery with exposed Sipo Mahogany frames, lignia floors and grooved white overheads, it is also full of custom touches.
The lovely dog house has great vision and a helm seat in the style of an Aston Martin DB5 car seat. The interior upholstery is by Tetrad – with lovely and very comfortable armchairs in the lower saloon and an intimate seating area which opens onto the galley which has a stunning natural zinc worktop. Even the crockery – Curious Animal by Wedgewood in custom drawers, is special.
