The Spindrift 43 is a very solid and traditional canoe stern cruising yacht, that is safe and comfortable to sail. She has a full keel, cutter rig and centre cockpit. They were designed to cross oceans and extensive cruising. The current owners prepared and fitted out the vessel for an extended world cruise in 2012.

They rebuild or restored almost all systems on board before the start, sparing no expense. They include: new rigging 2012, major engine overall in 2010, complete rewire, plumbing replacement and new bow sprit etc. Please see the inventory and dates to see how comprehensive this work was. 

The decks are safe with a proper pulpit, bars to work at the mast, high bulwark and stanchions, very secure centre cockpit. The aft deck houses all the desirable cruising kit, including dinghy on davits, with Solar and Wind generator, life raft, BBQ and even a stern electric windlass for those unique anchorages. 
Below decks the traditional feel continues with a warm teak fitout. Phylis is a two cabin layout with twin heads, large galley with large fridge and ample storage, separate navigation station, even a workshop. 

Phylis has just arrived on the Gold Coast, Australia and is now Australian Tax paid. She represents a fantastic opportunity to commence your cruising dream right here.
