Spirit Hits the Water in Three Months!

We were notified today that on or about February 27th Spirit should leave the Wroxham facility on one big flatbed truck for a several hour trip south to Fox’s Marina in Ipswich. Once there she’ll have her mast installed before being lowered into the water for several weeks of commissioning – the finalization of a process that started in July of 2013 when we contracted for the build. Commissioning, sea trials and handover should conclude by mid May. Not that we’re counting but Spirit will be ours in approximately 163 days.

Below are some progress photos taken today.
