General condition and any additional information

Wind Spirit is a well-maintained 1985 Capital Yachts Newport 30 Mark III; a surprisingly spacious, fast masthead sloop beautifully upgraded for comfortable for cruising, coastal exploring and casual racing. With 63-inches of headroom, lots of storage, fresh-water vacuum head, energy-efficient fridge and pillow-top bedding, Wind Spirit is unique thirty-foot sailboat that feels like a much larger boat. We sailed her in the Abacos, Bahamas for several months and she performed beautifully.

After refurbishing her engine, we stripped the bottom and applied four coats of 63% copper barrier and and three coats of hard anti-fouling bottom-paint. Then installed PEX plumbing, Blue Sea electrical panels, Ultraleather cabin cushions/bedding, a custom teak head with a SailVac vacuum waste system, new standing and running rigging, efficient Engel refrigeration, and more for years of fun, reliable sailing. Wind Spirit looks as good in person as she does in the photos and is seaworthy today.

We are now living and working on another sailboat in a slip near Wind Spirit, so any time is a good time see her.Temporary air-conditioning while on the hard makes Wind Spirit a pleasure to see on hot days, too!

Improvements to the hull, deck, rigging, engine, or interior
Engel 42-Quart Counter-Top AC/DC Refrigerator/Freezer
Wind Spirit’s refrigerator draws a stingy 1-2 amps and is compatible with solar panels.
“One of the advantages of a compressor-driven portable refrigerator is that it can also serve as a freezer. And compared to thermo-electric coolers, they require fewer amps to do the job.” — Practical Sailor
