STOP PRESS – The owner would consider taking a part exchange. Please contact us to discuss suitability. This futuristic custom designed sailboat was built by world renowned boat builders Marten Yachts in New Zealand for an experienced sailor whose last yacht was a Nautor Swan on which he circumnavigated. The remit for his new boat was for a faster long distance blue water luxury cruising yacht to a very high specification and standard of construction. No expense was spared during her design and build. Unlike many ?comparable? yachts on the new and second hand market such as Shipman, Wally or Baltic she was specifically designed to be capable of making transoceanic passages sailed by only two people, and occasionally single-handed. Since the boat was launched she has completed almost thirty thousand trouble free miles. This includes three passages averaging more than two hundred miles a day from New Zealand to Tahiti and back, one of which was undertaken alone by her then sixty nine year old owner. Most recently ?Spirit? was sailed double handed from Auckland, through the Timor Sea to Bali and since then double-handed across the Indian Ocean to the Seychelles, finally arriving in Durban in 2009. In January this year designer Merfyn Owen sailed together with her owner from Durban to Cape Town for the purpose of reviewing the yacht as part of the sale and to help organise a refit work list. During the four day trip in which I was brought up to date with her history it was clear that the yacht has never been in a better condition to fulfil her original brief. In cosmetic terms she has been looked after, is in immaculate condition down below and requires only some paint touch up, new canvas work and polish/valet work on deck. Mechanically Spirit of Adventure has been continually professionally maintained and improved during the last seven years. Her last refit was carried out in New Zealand in 2007 which included hauling to enable a scheduled inspection by the builders, mast and sail manufacturers. As recently as 2009 a new modern high load generator was fitted to replace the original. In Cape Town the yacht is in the hands of Jaz Marine (custom builders of Owen Clarke Class 40?s as well as Gunboat cruising catamarans). ?Spirit? has since been hauled, fully inspected by her original build manager and a maintenance program/cosmetic overhaul is now underway. Spirit of Adventure is reluctantly for sale. With her owner now in his seventies, after this coming season he no longer wishes to make the long distance passages that keep him away from his family. Spirit will be his last sailboat. This true high performance blue water cruiser will be available for viewing in Cape Town, South Africa, from July 2010. Merfyn Owen May 2010 ************************************************ In styling the yacht the client particularly wanted to maintain some consistency with the form of an Open 60, whilst improving comfort and protection from wind and weather. Lead designer Allen Clarke had the delicate job of balancing the requirements of comfortable sea keeping, comfort and a luxurious accommodation with the ever-present greed for speed. The result is a wide powerful yacht with twin wheels, separate working cockpit and a full-length undercover lounge cockpit sheltered behind and under a large coach roof. The saloon area inside the coach roof seats eight for dinner with exterior views and the main accommodation is divided into two comfortable staterooms aft and four other berths. At the owner?s request the area forward of the mast was left empty, as the intention is to cruise quickly and with the minimum of people whilst still having the ability to lavishly entertain in harbour. Subsequently simple, light accommodation was provided in the forward compartment for additional guests. It was envisaged that this area could for future owners be adapted to a cabin with a full fit out, possibly for a pr
