The incredible Spirit 65DH SPIRIT OF JOSEPHINE – barely unwrapped…
November 24th, 2022
SPIRIT OF JOSEPHINE was delivered to her current owners in 2021. She is an extraordinary sailing yacht that is not only beautiful, but also kind to the planet with twin Ocean Volt electric drives. She also boasts a livery of One Sails 4T Fourty Mainsail and Jib, which is the only proven fully recyclable sail cloth currently available, as well as an extraordinary interior which is truly bespoke and very beautiful, making the most of her world class timber and coatings.
You can see a walkthrough video of SPIRIT OF JOSEPHINE here:
She has captivating good looks and you can see her under sail here:
She is also being sold with full yard warranty from her Spirit Yachts for 12 months from the writing of this blog. The majority of her onboard systems carry their own warranties beyond this period which is also backed up by the lifetime support offered to all Spirit Yachts by the builder.
SPIRIT OF JOSEPHINE has also benefited from a very close management relationship with the Project Manager at Spirit Yachts, which has ensured the critical eye and attention to detail of her commissioning and sea trials have continued, right through to her winter preparations. This intimate knowledge and practical experience of SPIRIT OF JOSEPHINE will be a great support to the new owner, as they join the Spirit Family, with the support that entails.
SPIRIT OF JOSEPHINE has been only sparingly used by her owner. This is demonstrated by the watermaker and dive compressor having received their initial commissioning by Spirit Yachts, and subsequent winterisation, and no further use. They have been left as new and are ready for the next adventure.
The owner of SPIRIT OF JOSEPHINE is determined that she is perfect and so she has enjoyed 14 months of shake down and snagging for which details can be provided upon request. The shake down process includes a passage from Ipswich to Lymington which is where she now lies. She has been slept aboard for only 3 nights to minimise wear on the yacht. She looks and is, a new yacht.
SPIRIT OF JOSEPHINE is the 75th Spirit Yacht to launch out of a total fleet of 80 fabulous looking sailing yachts. All Spirits are bespoke and SPIRIT OF JOSEPHINE follows this tradition.
A new build Spirit 65, to a similar style and specification would see a production schedule of at least 30 months, excluding the initial lead time to start production.
Spirit’s construction process consists of a sustainably sourced wood epoxy construction, which provides exceptional strength, alongside low weights and significant environmental benefits. The stunning AWLWood exterior lacquer is considered second to none, and provides high durability, with great UV protection and durability.
