"The deckhouse range is designed with the option for long distance cruising in comfort, with full visibility and easy communication from the helm but with a style and performance that's very hard to find these days.”

- Spirit Yachts CEO and head designer Sean McMillan

Spirit DH60

The magnificent Spirit DH60 was first launched from the Spirit yard in 2013, and in the same year she made her racing debut at the Antigua Classics. Proving Spirit Deckhouse designs are more than capable of competing successfully, the DH60 picked up three ‘First of Class’ awards, including a first in class, concours class win and first in the single-handed race.

Finished beautifully varnished mahogany topsides, the Spirit DH60’ displays superb modern construction technology, ease of handling and legendary performance. The DH60’ differentiates herself from the Spirit Classics with increased volume down below for enhanced comfort on long passages and when worldwide cruising.

As with all deckhouse designs, the heightened coachroof provides weather protection and a great social area with comfortable seating and a full navigation station with all-round visibility.

The brief for the first 60foot Spirit Deckhouse was a classically designed yacht that could easily be sailed short-handed and was comfortable enough to spend long periods on time living onboard. The result was a stylisy, yet practical yacht that now spends its days cruising around the Caribbean.

With superb quality of design and build throughout the 60DH can be customised to an owner’s particular requirements if required.  Spirit offers total flexibility regarding interior layout, rig design and specification with minimal compromise on sailing performance.

The 60DH is brilliant for both cruising and racing and can be sailed with limited crew or a full-on racing team, she can also be easily set up for short or single-handed sailing.
