The beauty and quality of a Morris 48 and Hinckley 50, with the custom-designed performance of a proven, ocean-tested racer, is this one of a kind Mariner 47.
Already storied for her adventures in the book “North Atlantic Odyssey, Sailing to the Arctic Circle”, Free Spirit has been completely modernized by an insatiably avid sailor determined to constantly refine her performance. She has been refitted with new engine, GMT carbon fiber mast and boom, redesigned high-tech keel by Empacher, and taffeta protected, carbon fiber/Vectran sails. These high tech improvements contributed to a highly successful racing career:
Won the Mass. Bay Sailing Association Season championship with wins in 8 of 16 major regattas.
Overall Class B racing class winner in the 1997 Corinthian 200.
Won Chapman Bowl – 1997
