Re: Island Spirit 401 talk to me

I suggest you go here Caribbean Charter Sailing,Sailing Vacations, Caribbean vacations. and contact the website owner. He has owned a couple of Island Spirits including, I think, a 401 and he is probably the most knowledgable Island Spirit person around . He is out sailing in the Caribbean right now and I don't think he is a member here so you'll have to contact him.

Re: Island Spirit 401 Talk To Me

Perhaps I can help? I designed the Island Spirit and have been following the recent builder debacle as a concerned party.
Do you need specifics of the boat (it isn't being built currently) or are you in the second-hand market. The design is quite old now (1980's) and it has been superseded by the Maverick 400.

cheers

Re: Island Spirit 401 - Talk to Me

The Maverick is the lottery boat but the Island Spirit although as you state an older design, I consider one of the best within my budget restraints. Wondering if you could comment on the feasibility at a reasonable cost of modifying one hull in a 4 cabin layout to a semi owner’s configuration of head with separate shower stall plus small utility area?

Re: Island Spirit 401 - Talk to Me

Hi Cameron, I know some of the Island spirits have this arrangement so it is very possible. Did you want a new one - I know of some hull, deck & bulkhead boats around in SA. Otherwise it is quite a lot of work.
