The award-winning Spirit 50CR (cruiser-racer) offers a balance of sailing performance with added interior volume compared to the Classic Spirit designs. The overall design stays true to Spirit’s timeless, modern classic style with the addition of increased interior headroom and beam for cruising comfort.
The ‘racer’ element of Spirit’s ‘cruiser-racer’ (CR) designs is evident when looking around the Lignia deck* of the 50CR. Carbon fibre mast and boom with nitronic rod rigging support a OneSails performance sail wardrobe. A Ritchie 5” steering compass is fitted to the binnacle and a 42” Mahogany and stainless steel wheel fitted with steering brake sits centrally in the beautifully crafted cockpit.
The spacious aft deck provides plenty of room for relaxing when cruising. Small lazarette lockers are self-draining and a larger lazarette offers additional stowage with access to stowed dinghy and all cruising equipment.
Mooring is facilitated by the primary anchor; a Delta 15kg mated to 75 metres 8mm calibrated chain mounted on at the bow with self-stowing rollers. A Lewmar vertical windlass comes with remote deployment and stowage from the helm and foredeck.
A Mastervolt mass combi ultra 12/300-150 charger/inverter is fitted with the option to add solar charging. A Mastervolt Alpha 12/130 second alternator charges a bank of 2 high capacity MLI Ultra 12/2500 Lithium Ion batteries. Mastervolt AGM 12/90 engine start battery and AGM 12/130 dedicated bow thruster battery.
Fixed push pits and pull pit and demountable stanchions fitted with flush deck sockets and s/s guardwires are in place for deck safety.
Down below, the slightly raised coachroof allows for added headroom, whilst the yacht’s 3.5m beam offers ample interior space for daily life onboard and entertaining.
A forward owner’s suite houses a king-sized bed with bedside tables, and overhead and reading lights. Low level mood/night lighting is also fitted. The cabin’s en-suite facilities include separate toilet/basin and shower cubicles, both with overhead hatches for light and ventilation. Plentiful hanging locker space plus multiple cupboards and drawers.
Guests will be more than comfortable in the port-side double cabin with adjacent bathroom. The cabin comprises a queen-sized bed with bedside shelves, and overhead and reading lights. Full height wardrobe with further hanging space, cupboards and drawers sit outboard.
The large saloon has a dining/seating area for six around a central table opposite a sofa arrangement on the starboard side.
The saloon is filled with natural light from the port and starboard side portholes, and provides open plan access to the galley. The well-equipped galley includes a 100ltr front opening fridge, a three-burner gas cooker with grill and oven below, and a double sink with mixer tap.
The starboard-side navigation table sits in front of a single navigator’s berth for use during overnight passages.
Alternative layouts to suit an owner’s preferences and itinerary are available.
