2008 Island Spirit 401 - Owner Version

Single owner boat - cruise ready - ICW friendly - exceptionally well cared for!

This beautiful example of the Island Spirit 401 is now up for grabs. Lovingly cared for by her first and only owners, who oversaw her complete construction, she represents very good value for a ready-to-go global voyager, in excellent condition. Island Spirits are safe, sea-worthy blue-water boats, offering plenty of space and storage combined with a decent turn of speed.

Her saloon and cockpit space/layout are arguably superior to that of most 45' cats. With lots of solar, wind charger and recent water maker, frequent marina visits are a thing of the past. Brand new sails, batteries and anchor chain fitted end of 2016. This truly is a wonderful boat for those looking for a safe, comfortable, blue-water cruiser, easily handled by two and with lots of space.
