I like both boats. The island spirit is huge for a 37foot cat. Ive sailed on one for over a month in the carribbean several years back. I would suggest the Tpi lagoon
would sail better, but havent sailed one. I believe the island spirit to be of good build quality and a reasonable performer although the low bridge deck
does slam quite easily in chop, its the only real downside i see. Its also very beamy for its length (22ft ?), which ive been led to believe is not ideal ( not that i know). Tpi was considered a high quality builder
, ive just sold my boat
which was a tpi build and my experience confirms they built solid boats. The lagoon has a better bridge deck
clearance, most likely sails
better but is older and smaller.
