SPIRIT is a 2008 San Juan 48 Flybridge in excellent condition and has very low hours. Professionally maintained and it shows. Superbly designed and finely built this is an opportunity to own on a top of the line DownEast style Flybridge.  This is a beautiful and special yacht.


SPIRIT is a beautiful Flybridge example of the San Juan line of top quality performance yachts. This 48 Flybridge offers an outstanding level of custom craftsmanship and expert fit and finish. The Gregg Marshall designed hull combined with proven structural engineering and a Composite Resin Infusion building process delivers a solid offshore vessel capable of planning speeds of over 30 knots.

The Flybridge is a center helm configuration with, custom polished stainless steel hand rail and seating frame, centerline double Stidd helm seat, and Bimini top. There is a full lower helm station, wet bar, additionally lounge seating in the cockpit. SPIRIT has a two-stateroom cabin layout, with Galley down and a large main salon Settee.

The San Juan is a beautifully built boat with a 30 knot cruise speed. The 48 Flybridge is aesthetic and performance perfection. SPIRIT must be seen to be truly appreciated.
