History

The 'Spirit of Anegada' is a custom built day sail boat. There are no sleeping berths below decks and so instead she is designed with a very large and deep cockpit. This makes for an incredibly safe and comfortable ride, especially when smaller children are onboard. The skipper has a separate small cockpit aft from which both the steering and sail trim is managed. There is a small cabin forward with a cook's galley that contains ice boxes, sink, storage etc. and also a separate head compartment (toilet) in the bow.

She worked out of Hout Bay from 1989 - 1992. After which she sailed direct from Cape Town to St Maarten in 35 days, a very good time for such a long passage. She worked in St Maarten until September 1995 where she escaped being damaged by hurricane Louis.

Since 1996, she has been plying the waters of the British Virgin Islands. She is named after the BVI island of Anegada, which is situated 13 miles to the north of Virgin Gorda.
