This High-Tec performance cruising cat has a superb pedigree, she was built by the famous Australian Multihull identity Geoff Cruse who is well known for his range of Crowther Windspeed catamarans he built back in the 80's and 90's, his pioneering sailing and building of Multis in the early 70's and in recent times as Australia's leading Multihull consultant and surveyor.
Free Spirit presents in excellent condition and is ready to start her cruising life style again. It would be great to see her explore the South Pacific region or even be sailed back to the USA to show the Americans what a well designed and built catamaran is capable of. Maybe even do a few of their coastal races such as the Newport Beach to Ensenada race. That would turn a few heads.

This fine vessel has been built in foam wrapped in lovely yellow Kevlar and sealed and bonded in the best epoxy resin. This makes the boat very light and incredibly strong, the mast is a beautiful work of art in carbon fibre.
Free Spirit is a big cat with a wide beam for stability and room below for family and friends, she has 2 x big double cabins and a well equipped galley down in the starboard hull.
She has done plenty of cruising to some of the more remote outer reefs of the Queensland coast and has been a popular fun boat often with the decks laden with many body enjoying the WAGS (Wednesday Afternoon Go Sailing) out of RQYS in Moreton Bay. I have been told there has also been the occasional fun nights on board at the many cruising location within Moreton Bay.
The builder Geoff (Crusey) Cruse has always been the one who's in charge of doing all the maintenance on her over the years. It comes with a huge wardrobe of exotic sails.
This is an incredibly capable cruiser that can kick up her heels and eat up the sea miles in comfort to get to those far away locations with ease. Her Sister ship "Bligh Spirit" completed a cruising circumnavigation of the globe with a crew of 2.
Don't miss this opportunity to invest in this fun life style of a quality performance cruiser at a bargain price. She is ready to sail away over the horizon to explore the Pacific and beyond.
