Take a strongly built, Canadian made, proven offshore hull and spend several years and over $100,000 upgrading all major systems. You now have the beautiful Free Spirit, ready for any adventure.
A Spencer 44 centre cockpit is known for its traditional design, sea keeping ability and offshore capabilities. It’s been thoughtfully upgraded in all the right ways to make cruising and passage making safe and secure. Upgrades were completed by well established professional service providers to ensure the finest quality work.
The cutter rig is strong, capable and gives you lots of options for a well-balanced sail plan. The large cockpit, 6'6" headroom and separate fore and aft cabins makes it a flexible and roomy cruiser.
A custom-made hard top dodger with offshore rated windows and full canvas enclosure, keeps the captain and crew warm, dry and secure in any weather.
The entire rig has been upgraded. From a new stainless steel compression post in 2013, new chain plates in 2015 and all new stainless-steel rigging replaced in 2016 by Ocean Rigging and Hydraulics in Vancouver, BC.
The entire electrical system was removed and re-wired in 2015 by Pacific Northwest Yacht Services, including all wiring, connections, and custom breaker panel.
The plumbing system was replaced in 2016 with cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) pipes and Sharkbite fittings to ensure you don’t have to worry about the comings and goings of your water and waste system.
The list of upgrades continues but the takeaway is simple. Free Spirit is a great boat that is capable of taking its new owners just about anywhere they want to go.
