More about Spirit of Oysterhaven:
In 1971, a French yachting enthusiast commissioned naval architect Frederick Parker to design an ocean-going yacht meeting Lloyd's 100A1 classification. The hull was constructed by Joyce Brothers in Hamble, then shipped to France for interior work with luxurious materials like Burma teak, walnut, and teak-holly flooring.
Commissioned in 1972 as "Senouire," the yacht sailed the Mediterranean for private use and charter. After a change of ownership, it became embroiled in questionable activities near the Bahamas, leading to impoundment by the US Coast Guard and eventual sale in Fort Lauderdale.
In 1997, the yacht caught the attention of someone seeking a vessel for yachtmaster training. Following its purchase, it underwent a thorough refit in Cork Dockyard and was renamed "Spirit of Oysterhaven," gaining a Passenger Licence. The yacht appeared in a TV series and sailed to various events, including the Tall Ships event in Dublin.
Spirit of Oysterhaven's journey continued in 2002, with an Atlantic crossing and an inspiring voyage chronicled in Theo Dorgan's book "Sailing Home." Subsequent refits and travels took the yacht to the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Azores, and more, participating in regattas and sail training programs.
Between 2013 and 2017, under Sail Training Ireland, Spirit became a prominent sail training vessel in Ireland, earning recognition and awards. In 2017, it participated in the Antigua Classic Regatta once more before further voyages in the Atlantic, ending with a refit in Galicia.
Now based in Galicia, Spirit of Oysterhaven invites prospective buyers to experience its exceptional sailing qualities during summer months in the Rias of Galicia.
