  1. 24-meter Wind Spirit Lunched By Lloyd Stevenson
    New Zealand based Lloyd Stevenson BoatBuilders have launched their latest yacht. A 24-meter sailing vessel called "Wind Spirit" and it is more of an expedition ketch. The vessel built for an experienced owner who wants to take the vessel in the high-latitudes and to some remote locations although the homeport/berth is Brest, France. You might know of the name Lloyd Stevenson BoatBuilders as they are the ones who built the futuristic-looking tenders for sailing yacht "A".
  2. As for Wind Spirit, she splashed towards the end of 2022 and still represents the yard's largest build to date. Already being a sail yacht that makes the vessel more environmentally friendly by utilizing the wind to help her move from destination to destination. To help make her even greener, she will have alot of her power generated by solar panels as well as two hydro-generators which help to charge the lithium-ion battery bank onboard. Her hull was cold-molded using yellow cedar and an exterior shell of Kevlar and e-Glass. Her rig, masts/booms are all carbon.
  3. Accommodation for guests is in two twins and two doubles as well as two heads to share. The interior d├ęcor and style is a bit understated but comfortable and certainly does not feel like you are on a utilitarian vessel. Anigre wood paneling lines the interior creating a light and mid-tone atmosphere. White accents also line the walls for crisp contrast. All the creature-comforts of home are onboard including a sizable galley area. As the vessel is designed to take on long expeditions it is well-equipped to handle the missions.
