Big Spirit is a 72ft steel sailing yacht built at the Devonport yards in 2000 specifically to provide the safest platform for 18 people from all walks of life to come together as a team and complete what was billed as the toughest yacht race in the world, sailing around the world against prevailing winds and currents.

Big Spirit which was originally known as Challenge Business #45 and has a very successful record having recording two safe and successful round the world races (BT Global Challenge 2000/1 and the Global Challenge 2004/5), winning the last race in 2004/2005 and is still the holder of the class record for the round the island race on the south coast.

Since purchasing Big Spirit in October 2007 it has undergone a complete refit and refurbishment (the second in it’s short life!) and is now ready for more adventures, albeit with some creature comforts thrown in to make things a little more pleasant!

The yacht now has large screen AV system with PC connectivity for everything from presentations around the 18 seat table to relaxing off watch mid Atlantic when you fancy just watching a DVD.

Air conditioning has been fitted to the saloon area making it much more comfortable when the weather is hot and sunny and three fridge freezer units, washing machine, dryer and microwave oven mean fresh food and clean clothes are always available wherever you are in the world!

The yacht is coded to MCA Cat 0, meaning it built to the standard and carries all safety equipment for operating anywhere on of the oceans of the world.


Big Spirit operates all over the Atlantic including:-

UK, Canary Islands, Azores, Cape Verde Islands, Caribbean, Norway, France and Spain.
