description

Sailing Yacht Spirit of Lusitania;

measures  57 ft, (17,80 m)  is cutter rigged and has a central cockpit. She was designed by Bruce Farr and built by Beneteau shipyards, in France, in 2006.

Her first owner bought her in that same year and brought her to Lagos in the Algarve, where she has had her summer home base ever since.

In 2015 she was sold to a new owner and went through several upgrades conducted by Augusto, our Captain and boat manager.
Some refits done in 2016 are; a new teak deck, new rigging, new upholstery inside and outside, new navigation instruments, and safety systems. Before the summer of 2017, she was equipped with a full set of new sails, including a symmetrical and an asymmetrical spinnaker.

Safety onboard:

Augusto’s slogan is “Safety first, and always afloat”.
Everything has been done to guarantee the safety of the boat and its passengers.
We are equipped with up-to-date satellite navigation, and radio communication systems. A man-over-board system, and a 10 person life raft.

All the cabins are equipped with their own fire extinguisher, and we installed a smoke alarm in the galley.

She is an extremely comfortable, safe and fast yacht to sail, and has sailed many seas of the world in the 12 years of her life. From the Greek waters to the Caribbean islands.
