Broker’s Comments

In July 2017, SOUFRIERE was uprated for 2-handed performance sailing. She can now execute a start like a Dragon – i.e. unfurl the jib on the line at the gun with speed. The result is that she came second on IRC in the Dun Laoghaire to Dingle 300nM race double handed division.

Spirit Yachts are rather special and they turn heads always with their elegant good looks. Their design allows them to compete successfully in regattas both in the UK and internationally. They are competitive under IRC and they are well balanced and easy to handle both in a regatta situation and also for family sailing. Crew work onboard can be straight-forward and uncomplicated as she races without a spinnaker pole to manhandle and sails with asymmetric spinnakers. She was originally set up with a spinnaker pole, which is still in place, with the appropriate sail inventory so she can be sailed this way also.

There are now 54 Spirit Yachts afloat and during this time they have shone on the international circuit. SOUFRIERE herself has an enviable regatta record –

  • 2007 the Fitzpatrick Salver at the Howth Yacht Club annual regatta – Lambay Island race
  • 2009 the Spirit Trophy at the British Classic Yacht Club Cowes regatta.
  • 2009 Class 1 trophy at the British Classic Yacht Club Cowes regatta.
  • 2009 Ladies race at the British Classic Yacht Club Cowes regatta.
  • 2010 the Spirit Trophy at the Panerai British Classic Yacht Club Cowes regatta.
  • 2010 the Lutine Cup Class 1 trophy at the Panerai British Classic Yacht Club Cowes regatta.
  • 2014 the Spirit Trophy at the Panerai British Classic Yacht Club Cowes regatta.
  • 2014 the Lutine Class 1 trophy at the Panerai British Classic Yacht Club Cowes regatta.
  • 2014 the Long Inshore Classic Boat trophy at the Panerai British Classic Yacht Club Cowes regatta.
  • 2015 the Ladies race at the Panerai British Classic Yacht Club Cowes regatta.
  • 2015 line honours in the Round the Island race at the Panerai British Classic Yacht Club Cowes regatta.
  • 2017 line honours in the 300nm Volvo Dun Laoghaire to Dingle race double-handed division.

Outside these outings SOUFRIERE has been sparingly used and has much more to give as a fast and responsive cruising yacht. Her interior is atmospheric and works well for day sailing or when cruising and overnighting. She sleeps 4 comfortably with a twin owners berth aft and a double berth forward. There are 2 further berths in the main saloon and a heads compartment and shower. Aft she has an oilskin locker which could be reinstated as a second heads if required.

Every year she has been laid up from October to May with the mast racked and stripped of all halyards, rod rigging, alloy spreaders and mast head instruments. All stripped items are always stored inside. She has a timber strong-back and fitted breathable Regentex winter cover to allow for varnish maintenance to be carried out whilst she slumbers. In 2015 she returned to her build yard for some special Spirit love including new Awlgrip topsides paint and a full re-varnish of her lovely mahogany both inside and out. The upholstery was also replaced at that time.

During Covid 19 she was stored afloat but wearing a complete overall cover from deck to water. She is now in commission for the 2021 season.

A very special modern cruiser racer with epic good looks, she is being offered at a fraction of replacement cost.
