With the immaculate good looks and performance you expect from Spirit, this 50 ft design with her deckhouse makes this a very practical cruising boat. The deckhouse not only provides extra protection from the elements on extended cruises but brings a lot of natural light to the interior. It’s sometimes the lack of that in flush deck boats, which can lead to criticism of them. With her cruising capabilities and such a name we are not surprised to find ROVING SPIRIT in California.
