The 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.
The brief for the first 60foot Spirit Deckhouse was a classically designed yacht set up for easy short-handed sailing that was comfortable enough to spend long periods of time living onboard. The result was a stylish, yet practical yacht that now spends its days cruising around the Caribbean.
As with all deckhouse Spirits, the raised coachroof with panel windows provides near-360 degree views of the horizon. An interior a navigation table within the deckhouse offers a helm position protected from the elements. The raised coachroof also houses a great social area with port and starboard sofas. Natural light floods in from the panel windows and crew and guests can watch the passing coastline or horizon in comfort.
The DH60 is primarily a cruising yacht but as mentioned above she can be adapted to compete at regattas if required. Her lightweight hull, carbon spars and modern deck equipment facilitate performance sailing for both cruising and racing. The Spirit DH60 has accommodation for six across three cabins and two bathrooms. An open plan galley on the starboard side serves the dining table and seating area to port. Alternative layouts can be configured based on owner preference and itinerary.
