The 35m (114.8ft) SPIRIT was built in composite to ABS standard by New Zealand Yachts, with exterior design and engineering by Brett Bakewell-White's Auckland studio and interior design by British designer Ken Freivokh.
SPIRIT is the largest wave piercing power catamaran superyacht currently for sale globally. Her 10.8m (35.4ft) beam makes her very stable underway and at anchor, and slender hulls with a shallow draft of just 2.1m (6.9ft) mean she is easily driven so very fuel efficient.
At 304GT, has the volume of a yacht 10m (30ft) longer and, like her smaller sistership ULTIMATE LADY, she could be fitted out to become a world class sport fishing yacht.
She was delivered in 2005 to award winning acclaim and extensively refitted in 2016-17. During the refit she was thoroughly overhauled mechanically, upgraded technically including AV/IT, her hulls, both double skinned for safety, were repainted and her interiors were refurbished. She also received a foredeck jacuzzi, two new tenders and several upgrades to her sport fishing capability.
MCA compliant, SPIRIT is a hugely popular charter yacht in Australia, Papua New Guinea and the South Pacific. The yacht comes with a fully registered commercial Charter and Management business. This include a GBR cruising permit, a fantastic website, social media accounts and a multitude of forward bookings bringing a potential new owner an enviable income.
Her sun deck has a U shaped sit-up bar beneath the hardtop, a flybridge helm station forward, sunpads aft and versatile deck areas for gym equipment, BBQ or entertainment. A spiral staircase port aft leads down to the bridge deck aft, which is the private terrace for the owner's suite with bar and seating.
The suite itself has an office, sofa, dressing room, en suite and the bed is diagonally positioned with a rotating pop-up TV at its foot to serve both bed and lounge. Walkaround sidedecks make sightseeing and marine life spotting easier and also provide access to the six-person jacuzzi on the foredeck, surrounded by banquette seating with optional shade from awnings.
The main deck aft features a large decked space with open air dining. Aft is a huge hydraulic platform across the space between the two hulls that expands the entertaining space on the main deck aft. The platform lowers to 1m (3ft) below the water for ease of access to and from the water and also for recovering the tenders and toys.
Inside there is lounge seating and a games table port aft with a bar and dining table to starboard, with plenty of natural light and views through large picture windows. Forward is a feature staircase in carbon fibre that links bridge and main decks, and there is a day head off the lobby. A corridor leads forward to the main deck guest suites, off a lobby naturally lit by decklights, with two double cabins and two twin cabins, each with an additional berth, completing accommodation for 12 guests in five cabins. She also sleeps up to 10 crew.
She has a 5.5m (18ft) Brig Navigator RIB guest tender and a 3.5m (11.5ft) inflatable rescue tender. Two 2019 jetskis are stowed on and launched by the hydraulic platform. SPIRIT also has a Bauer dive compressor and a selection of other toys.
Twin 1,400hp Caterpillar diesel engines, one in each hull, give her a top speed of 18 knots, a cruising speed of 10 knots and a maximum range of 1,800nm.
