'Wind Spirit', Newport 30 Mk III Racer/Cruiser for Sale

by Bruce Dunn
(Indiantown, Florida, USA)

Over $16,000 of recent refits & upgrades!

'Wind Spirit' is a renovated 1985 Capital Yachts Newport 30 Mark III; a surprisingly spacious, fast sloop beautifully upgraded for comfortable island cruising for two or more. All lines lead aft to the cockpit, so she is easy to single-hand.

After removing and upgrading the engine in 2014, my wife and I shipped our Oregon fresh-water boat to Indiantown, FL in September 2015. Over the next two years, we painstakingly rebuilt her on the hard from the outer-hull inward for years of safe, reliable sailing. We sailed to the Bahamas in May 2017 and returned a few months later to Indiantown Marina. Now our teenage grandkids want to sail with us each summer, so we bought a larger boat.

Fortunately for you, the hard, grinding and shockingly expensive work of getting her thoroughly repaired and upgraded has already been done. All you have to do is add your own personal touches and go sailing! We look forward to having you see her in-person.

We live on our other boat in a slip near 'Wind Spirit', so any time is a good time see her. We’ll also be here to assist you with questions after your purchase.
