The brand new Spirited 400 ‘Power’ utilizes the highly successful sibling ‘Spirited 380’ as a basis for it’s design. Sporting a new semi-displacement underwater hull shape, purpose designed for power-boating with a longer hull improving long range performance, economy and ride comfort.
The new hull retro-fits onto the existing Spirited 380 hull with only minor modifications. The natural ‘high aspect’ design of the 380 will aid in not only good bridgedeck clearance but also dry decks. Another addition is a new stylish cabin and flybridge which retains the trademark Spirited lines but incorporates good volume internally and enough space up top for a comfortable flybridge area.
Some of the changes you will notice is a different arrangement for the dinghy lift which is built into the cabin overhang with slide-out composite davit arms. This design leaves the swimming platform totally open and usable while the dinghy is not stowed.
The cabin overhang covering the cockpit area has also been extended with support posts anchored on the cockpit seat back (usually where the mainsheet track would be).
Access into the hulls from the saloon will also be more open with the vertical sided cabin better suited to a power boat. The extra volume in the saloon will be considerable, with more headroom forward for the option of an internal steering station.
The large front windows will make a huge difference to the visibility and the general open-feel atmosphere in the saloon area. Because the motors are re-located into the area forward of the main aft bulkhead means the head and shower on the Port side will need to be modified. The separate shower replaces the head area on the standard 380 design with the main head directly forward of this.
The final layout design is yet to be confirmed but will mainly only change in the saloon and head/shower areas, the rest will remain the same.
