Build me a long-distance sailing ketch for exploring remote places and
high latitudes

Wind Spirit is a fractional rigged ketch constructed of six layers of cold moulded, longitudinal and diagonal planked yellow cedar, with an outer skin of e-glass and Kevlar; the hull is an engineering masterpiece that takes advantage of both Lloyd Stevenson Boatbuilders' traditional wood construction experience and their composite expertise.

The brief also stipulated that the owner prefers sporty over luxury. Of course, Lloyd Stevenson Boatbuilders' interpretation of sporty is probably not what most people would expect. With a stunning interior made entirely from naturally finished Anegre wood panels, incorporating a 2mm negative detail and finished to our usual, very high standards, you could easily describe her as luxuriously sporty.
