2005 Fortuna 40′
*Option to transfer slip with sell of vessel, currently at Sabine Marine, Pensacola Beach Florida*
The first models, IS 35/36/37 were built in the mid to late 90’s and quickly became a much sought-after vessel, due to the revolutionary design which offered both optimal space and superior sailing performance. An IS 400 version followed in 2001 and Amanzi-Marine redesigned and launched the IS 401 in 2003. The Island Spirits have been awarded, Sail Magazine’s Top Ten in 2001, 2003 and 2005, with a 2003 Boat of the Year nomination. Although a lesser-known boat, they are stout and capable blue water catamarans. In fact, every boat was delivered on their own bottom to owners all over the world. They are constructed with solid glass below the waterline and balsa cored decks. Each hull is separated into multiple compartments with a sealed crush compartment fore and aft making them extremely safe. There are very few catamarans that offer this balance of performance, safety, and excellent living accommodations.
Quote from Sail Magazine Review (2003 w/2017 update)
“The Island Spirit 40, designed and built in South Africa, has many of the characteristics people look for in an offshore boat: solid construction, simple, robust, and accessible systems, safe and efficient sail handling gear, a roomy interior, and good sailing performance…
… Our verdict is simple: The Island Spirit 40 is an attractive, comfortable offshore cruiser that just happens to have two hulls.”
Quote from Yacht World website:
“Known for their sailing catamarans, the Island Spirit boats generally have a deeper draft and very wide beam, characteristics that make them popular and well-suited for a variety of commercial and recreational boating activities.”
Built to be lived aboard, the Island Spirit 401 has more living space, storage and comfort than any of its contemporary catamaran designs, up to 45 feet. A 2020 haul-out, with complete electronic refit, fresh bottom paint, sail drive/engine service and a full inventory of spare parts to compliment her cruising gear, S/V Twisted Angel is ready for her next adventure at a moment’s notice!
