Spirit was designed and built for keen racing in San Francisco Bay waters. With her long cockpit she looks more like a daysailer than an ocean-racing boat. She is a lively craft with a lot of speed and high rating to go with it but she was intended as a prototype of a one design racing class rather than a boat for offshore racing under a cruising rating rule. She has a long waterline, fin keel and good stability to assure seaworthiness under the moderate or heavy weather conditions. She is constructed of mahogany over white oak frames with teak trim and fiberglassed plywood decks.
