In our view, the 46 and 52 were among the most successful Spirit Yachts designs, and for good reason. But at 65 feet, the deckhouse proportions really work and the concept probably reaches its sweet spot - a beautifully timeless aesthetic - and could easily be sailed by two people only. Elegance combined with modern handling above and below the waterline, and great craftsmanship, are of course a Spirit Yachts specialty, but it takes commissioning owners with vision to create a boat like SPIRIT OF JOSEPHINE. From natural zinc surfaces to Harris Tweed Chesterfields, she leaves you wanting to spend time aboard. This is no average boat: SPIRIT OF JOSEPHINE is a modern classic with an awful lot of soul.



SPIRIT OF JOSEPHINE was a five year project from initial discussion to completion. She was built to embody some of the very best things we enjoy and hold dear, and was a fabulous coalition of ideas. First and foremost, she is a beautifully made and elegant sailing yacht. Light, responsive, fast and genuinely fun for two people to sail. She is also an indulgence: we recognised that when we built her, but we also recognised that our fortune in being able to build her did not give us license to overly pollute or damage the environment. So she is primarily made of natural, sustainable materials and has an electric regenerative sail drive system to supplement the wind!

The saloon does away with a traditional u-shaped table in favour of a zinc bar and leather bar stools, allowing comfortable chat over meal prep (style cue from the Covent Garden Hotel where we have been known to spend a number of hours!). The brass bar lights are a modern adaptation (LED bulbs) of old steamer lights. Her saloon sofa and chairs are made from Harris Tweed and the arm chairs in particular were installed to allow comfortable relaxation in a glorious space, albeit with an abundance of hand holds.

The crockery storage is beautiful Spirit Yachts cabinetry and just makes you smile. Its about detail, finish and ingenuity. No one needs a 30 piece bone china set of crockery at sea, but then no one needs a 65 foot yacht.

All the mattresses are natural (marine proofed) materials and supplied by Natural Mat. The sinks are from the London Basin company and match our house sinks, and in a nod to our favourite spy the nav chair is modelled on the passenger seat of an Aston Martin DB5!

We hoped to build an interior that was elegant and that would age gracefully. A place where we felt comfortable, secure and surrounded by beautiful things.
