Designed as a simple yet elegant day sailor, the Spirit 30 is a new addition to the Spirit Yachts portfolio. Sporting a 1930s-inspired, modern classic design and uncluttered decks, she is aesthetically beautiful and simple to sail. The ideal yacht for coastal cruising on a sunny day with family and friends, the Spirit 30 is also set-up for single or short-handed sailing. Her light displacement, modern hull design, and performance rig and sails deliver speed on the water and the option for competitive regatta racing.
The Spirit 30 comes equipped with a Torqeedo Cruise 4.0 FP electric drive system powered by lithium ion batteries (1 x 48-5000) and a Torqeedo 650W battery charger giving a range of circa 16NM at 5 knots. Increased range can be gained with optional additional battery capacity. The batteries can be recharged by shore power or via solar panels that mount over the cockpit cover.
Durable, sustainable decking gives way to a Sipo mahogany cockpit with tiller steering. Sail controls are carefully positioned to maintain a clear and comfortable seating area. Rigging is nitronic rod rigging complemented by carbon fibre mast and boom.
Halyards are led through the mast to a below deck manual winch and clutches. Headsail and spinnaker sheets are led to a pair of self tailing deck mounted winches. The standard headsail options are either a self tacking jib or an overlapping racing jib. An optional masthead asymmetric sail is also available.
Interior layout can be tailored to suit an owner’s requirements. The hull’s varnished Douglas fir planking and sapele ringframes showcase the craftsmanship within the yacht’s construction and give a warm, natural feel to the interior. At only 9.15m long with a displacement of 1.6tonnes, the Spirit 30 can easily be transported on a road trailer, adding to the versatility of this simple yet classically beautiful yacht.
