Projects: Sea Spirit 51 Passagemaker, Sea Spirit 55 Passagemaker, Sea Spirit 75 Passagemaker

After succesfully launching its first 60 Passagemaker model Sea Spirit follows it up with farther projects confirming its attention to make a complete line of full displacement explorer yachts all designed by the renowned Sparkman & Stephens studio firm. The 60 Passagemaker so far delivered in four examples has been acclaimed by the press for its timeless style, efficient arrangement, exquisite finish and extraordinary cruise range. The 51 Passagemaker will be Sea Spirit's entry level model, and will offer a similar style to its bigger sisters. Sea Spirit estimate a 9 knots top speed with a single 250hp Lugger engine, which give a range of up to 5000 nautical miles. Its lower deck accommodation offers a twin double cabins plan with two heads. The owners master stateroom is located to midship which gives less water slapping noise and rolling. The Sea Spirit 55 Passagemaker wants to be an intermediate model between the entry level 51 and the 60 models. Sparkman & Stephens again followed the exterior looking lines with a small ship style design. Sea Spirit have forward little detailed specification but what you get more to the smaller 51 is surely extra space in every part of the 55. Sea Spirit offer again a similar plan below decks to the smaller 51 with a full beam owners cabin to midship and VIP guest cabin to fore. The 75 Passagemaker is the second in size bigger project from Sea Spirit, being only smaller to the planned 88 Passagemaker. Displaying at a light load weight of 83 tons the 75 will offer various alternative layouts with a total of seven different choices between flybridge, main saloon, and lower deck plans. Without going into much detail the variety is surely in the choice for the lower deck which is available in four different choices. Here you can choose between a three or four cabin version, and a master stateroom to fore or aft.
