Description: Surprisingly spacious w/ 63-inches of headroom and lots of storage. Plus, many new refits & upgrades! Definitely a MUST SEE before buying any other coastal cruiser. She really looks as good in person as she does in the photos!

Wind Spirit is a upgraded 1985 Capital Yachts Newport 30 Mark III; a surprisingly spacious, fast sloop beautifully upgraded for comfortable sailing for two. All lines lead aft to the cockpit, so she is easy to single-hand. Wind Spirit is a great couples boat for long-term cruising in the Bahamas and Caribbean.

After removing and upgrading the engine in 2014, my wife and I shipped our Oregon fresh-water boat to Indiantown, FL in September 2015. We painstakingly rebuilt her on the hard from the outer-hull inward for years of safe, reliable sailing. We sailed to the Bahamas in May 2017 and returned a few months later to Indiantown Marina. Now our teenage grandkids want to sail with us each summer, so we bought a larger boat.

Fortunately for you, the hard, grinding and shockingly expensive work of getting her refitted and upgraded has already been done... especially the crucial physical/mechanical details that often go unappreciated until you survive a potential disaster.

We live on our other boat in a slip near Wind Spirit, so any time is a good time see her. Well also be here to assist you with questions after your purchase.
