"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 DH63

The deckhouse design of the Spirit DH63 incorporates a raised coachroof, which provides protection from the elements. Panel windows incorporated into all sides of the coachroof facilitate near 360-degree views of the horizon from the chart table.

Carbon spars and nitronic rod rigging are paired with a OneSails sail wardrobe comprising a fully battened mainsail and mizzen, a 105% jib and a custom electric furling asymmetric for outstanding performance.

Handling is smooth with a 48” mahogany and stainless-steel wheel fitted with a steering brake and the throttle and gear change are within easy reach.  A bow thruster, Raymarine navigational instruments and Lewmar remote deployment anchor are in place to assist with manoeuvring and mooring.

The cockpit has been designed with electric winches within easy reach, a fold-out table with built-in drinks fridge and wide, full-length seats to create a comfortable seating, sunbathing and crewing area.  A boom light is fitted to illuminate the cockpit, allowing alfresco dining.  A starboard aft locker opens to reveal steps down to an opening section of the transom and a custom fold-out swim ladder; guests also have access to a hot and cold aft deck shower.

Air-conditioned throughout, the interior is bright and airy with modern upholstery and overhead hatches, complemented by natural teak flooring and white eggshell timber with a mahogany trim.  Accommodation is for six across three cabins and two ensuites.  A spacious saloon allows open plan access to the well-equipped galley.

Lazarette lockers cater for stowage of a dinghy, outboard engine, gas bottles and all cruising equipment.  A Fischer Panda 15,000i water-cooled generator is equipped with a 3 cylinder-engine and offers variable speeds for ultra-quiet running.  A water maker, carbon passarelle, Anthony Gallo sound system, washing machine and sun awnings add to this already well-equipped cruising yacht.

The maintenance aspect of long distance cruising and liveaboard has been considered throughout the design of the Spirit DH63.  Access to the engine room, which is fitted with hi-density sound proofing, is via the deckhouse, saloon and guest cabin to give multiple access points for servicing.

With a 110hp Yanmar engine, the Spirit DH63 has a maximum speed of 9 knots and a cruising speed of 8 knots, and an approximate cruising range of 820Nm.  A 400ltr fuel tank is supported by a second 240ltr tank for longer passages.
