Launched in 2021, Spirit of Josephine is a hybrid-electric drive cruising yacht that oozes style and world class craftsmanship

The Spirit 65DH (Deckhouse) Spirit of Josephine was designed by Spirit Yachts to fulfil a couple’s dream of cruising in the UK, Mediterranean and Caribbean. The brief from the owners was to create a beautiful yet practical cruising yacht that leaves minimal impact on the environment. Family life is at the focal point of the Spirit 65DH, with stylish open plan galley and breakfast bar that incorporates a contemporary brushed zinc work top.

Spirit of Josephine has a Bermudan sloop rig with carbon spars, nitronic rod rigging and 4T FORTE™ recyclable sails from OneSails. The yacht has eco features throughout and includes twin Oceanvolt variable pitch sail drives, which will regenerate 21kW Lithium Valance batteries. A Fischer Panda 48v generator has been installed as a backup if required.

On deck, all controls are within easy reach in the cockpit to facilitate short-handed sailing.  Running rigging is led aft and Lewmar electric winches make life easier under sail. Large lazarette lockers in the stern provide plenty of storage for diving and watersports equipment, as well as an inflatable tender with Torqeedo electric outboard. A deck socket and crane with accompanying winch has been fitted for easy launch and recovery of the tender.

Smooth, flush decking gives way to the raised Sipo Mahogany coachroof, which forms the deckhouse section of the yacht. With panel windows on every side and 360-degree views of the horizon, the deckhouse doubles as an interior navigation station with Raymarine instruments and a guest seating area.

Down below, the natural upholstery colours selected by the owners complement the walnut cabinetry and exposed Sipo Mahogany ringframes. White timber bulkheads and deckheads retain a light and elegant feel throughout the interior.

Upon descending from the deckhouse, passing a starboard-side Pullman cabin, the interior reveals an open plan galley and saloon. Unlike many Spirits, the 65DH has a breakfast bar with high stools incorporated into the galley, which serves as the dining area. The galley is well-equipped for long distance passages and cruising in style with a fridge, freezer, four-hob electric oven, dishwasher, filtered drinking water tap and coffee machine.

Forward of the galley is a lounge-style saloon with an L-shaped sofa to port, which faces two Chesterfield armchairs on the starboard side.

Aft of the galley, on the port side, is a double cabin with accompanying head comprising an electric flushing toilet, basin and rain shower.

Situated forward of the saloon is the en-suite master cabin. A double bed with steps either side and storage drawers underneath is complemented by a starboard-side table with integrated storage compartment and mirror.

The port-side en-suite comprises an electric flushing toilet, basin and rain shower.

LED lighting, air conditioning and USB ports throughout complete this spacious interior designed to have all the comforts of home.
