Sayville, Long Island
New York - USA
This is our North American Yacht, a NA23, built in Texas, 1976.

After our 22ft Rhodes Continental was stolen, we bought our NA23 in the spring of 2007 for $2,500. What an incredible find. What a great boat.

She is in really good condition for a sailboat 30 odd years old.

Roomy and very stable, she handles well in all weather. It sleeps 5 comfortably inside, six if you want to squeeze. We'll be doing some upgrades next spring. Till then, we'll be having our

Spirit 28 Sailboats
Alan Stewart is the skipper of Duchess, a beautifully well maintained 1981 Spirit 28. He sails on Lake Travis in Austin Texas. His website is filled with valuable information on Spirit Sailboats and on the Spirit 28 specifically. His site is certainly worth a look. http:// www.spirit28.com/index.html

Spirit - North American Literature

This is an excellent website with helpful literature regarding the NA23 Spirit Yachts.

We'd love to share stories from other NA23 sailors past, present or future.

Contact me with information, photos, stories, etc. about your boat or about sailing in general and we'd be happy to publish it on our website.

If you have or need NA23 Parts, this might be a good place to post your information.
