LIBERTINE is one of three Spirit 46’s in the US. Spirit Yachts are highly desirable custom-built yachts designed by Sean McMillan and hand-built in Ipswich, UK.  All Spirit Yachts are exceptionally light and capable of surprising speed. The 46’ is no exception and can attain speeds in the low teens on an afternoon sail and sister-ships have logged 18kts with a crew in the appropriate conditions.  (A similar Spirit 52’ is the boat featured as Bond’s boat in Casino Royale.)


LIBERTINE is an exceptional example of this Spirit boat. It has an Antigua race winning history, wonderful weekends and many day sailing adventures to brag about. It is well cared for and in perfect condition.
