The 67-foot (20.42m) custom performance sailing sloop HIGH SPIRITS is now available for sale with Northrop & Johnson Yacht Broker Hank Halsted. The yacht is priced at $829,000.
HIGH SPIRITS was built by Bellieure Yachts with design by Ron Holland. Conceived as the largest yacht a couple or family can comfortably handle without crew, her powerful sailplan is controlled automatically from the cockpit. She has a very pleasing profile while offering an exceptional level of light and unrestricted visibility from her raised pilothouse and main salon. The sailing yacht’s elegantly crafted interior provides all amenities for comfortable living aboard in port or far at sea.
Originally launched in 1985, HIGH SPIRITS has always had exceptional maintenance. The yacht’s maintenance was accelerated to the extreme under her present ownership. She received an all systems refit from 2019 to 2021, leaving all aspects of the yacht in nearly new condition. From her masthead to bilges and stem to stern, all essential systems have been renewed.
HIGH SPIRITS generously accommodates six in three staterooms, two of which are configured as owner/VIP staterooms, and the third is well appointed for either guests or crew. The sailing yacht’s raised salon offers a panoramic line of sight visibility at deck level, and comfortable dining for eight as well as additional seating, a flat-screen TV, entertainment center, refrigerated drawers and custom glass storage.
The sailing yacht’s galley is open to the salon and fully equipped for gourmet food preparation with all new cooking equipment and appliances (2020). There is also abundant counter and cabinet space and plenty of storage for extended cruising. The companionway to the cockpit, four steps up, is on centerline aft in the salon and the stair down to the nav station and aft owner’s stateroom is outboard to starboard.
The comfortable center cockpit aboard HIGH SPIRITS surrounds the helm and full control station aft, adjoining a large, varnished teak dropleaf table with comfortable seating for eight and an integral drinks cooler. All sailing controls are within easy reach of the helm and the engine and navigation equipment are displayed on the console. The yacht’s cockpit is protected by a full dodger and Bimini with all new clear panels, a full set of solar panels above and Zenon lighting.
HIGH SPIRITS is a timeless yacht in exceptional condition, ready in all respects to cruise all oceans. Her original Ron Holland design assures her exceptional performance, and the remarkably detailed recent refits have all systems in nearly new condition. She represents a remarkable value on a remarkable yacht on today’s brokerage market.
