The Spirit line of boats was built for Glastron by North American Yachts and designed by Robert Finch who was a designer for Islander Yachts, Catalina, Coronado & several other West Coast builders. Known for good quality and stout construction, the Spirit 28 is an excellent sailing boat with excellent handling qualities under sail or power and my experience is that she is a good backing boat while under power too.  She’s classified as an IOR cruiser/racer and can be compared to many other popular boats of this size.  She’s considered more stable than most because of her 40% Bal./Dsp. Ratio which incorporates the more vertical keel first championed by Doug Peterson. It seemed after the Peterson keel, designers were using that shape their racer/cruiser models and many boat owner shucked out the extra cash to swap out the new design for their original keels. Her extra displacement of nearly 25% more than many of the Spirit’s competition makes her a better great lakes boat – not being so tender.   Her lush teak interior, looking much like a reverse of an Islander 28, has 6’2” headroom and can accommodate 5 to 6 family members on newly replaced upholstery. The head is completely enclosed for privacy.  The galley is L- shaped with large top loading ice box, SS sink, two burner alcohol stove with cutting board and plenty of storage space. The head has a nice vanity with SS oval sink and good room.  The Yanmar inboard can be accessed with the companionway step removed. The cockpit sports a tiller and is quite roomy. This is a nice, fresh water boat that is in excellent condition and well maintained.  The exterior wood bright work is excellent.  The owners are moving into a larger boat and are anxious to move this one along.
