Broker's Comments

SPIRIT is hull number 15 of the impressive Sou’wester 50 Yawl series. Much upgrading has been done over the years, including hull and deck paint, engine replaced, electronics replaced, and she is very well equipped. The current owner has based the boat in Narragansett bay, and just uses the boat for light cruising, in Rhode Island waters. During the winter, she is hauled and has a canvas deck cover.

There are twin furling headsails, although the staysail furler is currently off the boat and at the owners house. The mainsail is electric in mast furling for easy handling, and the mizzen is on a manual in mast furler. There are 4 electric winches.

Below decks, the boat is crafted in Oak, and has 3 double cabins forward of the saloon. There is a head and stall shower shared by the 2 larger cabins, and a second head aft, to starboard. The Saloon is slightly raised with the engine underneath, and is light and airy. To port is L shaped settee, and chart table area, and to starboard is the galley.

Access to the generator is by opening the hinged stairs. The boat has 2 zone air conditioning for those hot summer days. With her centerboard, she is able to cruise shallow areas, and in the past has done several long offshore passages, including to the Med, so is very well proven.


Offered to co-brokers on a commission split of 50/50.
