For filmed walk through and additional information:

(The Tom Harney film on the site starts with a picture of another boat but moves on to Spirit)

For information concerning her designer, please go to:

Prior to forming his own firm, Gary Grant worked alongside Bob Perry. The vessel on sale here is the first of the 535 series and the only one with the designer’s hard dodger installed. She has circumnavigated and can do so again. Some have described her as a Norseman 441 on steroids.

She has fresh bottom paint and zincs. Bearings for her in-mast furler and connecting hydraulic hoses to her Lewmar Commander in the bow have just been replaced at a cost of . All of her furling gear will have been inspected prior to your purchase. Much of her wire has been replaced.

Her Mercedes OM 352 6 Liter Diesel Engine is described here in her oil analysis from Blackstone Laboratories:

"RICHARD: Your OM 352 is wearing well based on this data. Universal averages for this type of engine
show typical wear levels after about 65 hours of oil use. You went 100 hours on this oil and wear metals are
average or lower. That shows internal parts are in great shape at 8,900 total hours. That means we don’t
see any reason to rebuild this engine just yet. It’s wearing well!"

Engine may be started on the hard as fed by fresh water through strainers. Ditto, Genset with 1480 hours.
Her Mercedes OM352 diesel compares in longevity with a Luger. Her Genset diesel is a Luger. Both of these engines are non-computerized meaning they can be serviced anywhere. They are legendary.

Speed under power at 2200 RPM, is 7.0 knots. Max power is at 2400 RPM. Under sail, she will make 8’s. With Spinnaker, 12’s. She is a 200 miles per day cruiser. For the Bahamas she only draws 6.5 feet. Her mast height makes her unsuitable for the Intracoastal.

As a liveaboard she compares favorably with a small condo the difference being she can be docked anywhere in the world.
Price is negotiable but only with serious buyer who has gone on board and has compared her with others similar vessels.
