With sleek, refined contours and a traditional finish, the team at Sparkman & Stephens has developed a new 130’ Spirit of Tradition Sloop for an experienced yachtsman. A modern light displacement hull form, combined with advanced sail handling and mechanical systems make this new design truly state of the art. Although advanced in almost every aspect, elegant styling evokes traditional sentiments with aesthetically pleasing shapes and classic Sparkman & Stephens detailing.
On deck, a functional aft cockpit provides plenty of working space for the helmsman and trimmers. A roomy lounging forward cockpit provides comfort for guests and an unobstructed panoramic view over the low profile cabin house. Otherwise, the decks are clutter-free, clean, and simple, with all sheets and halyards running below decks. Traditional S&S deck furnishings, such as varnished Dorade boxes with polished cowls, varnished butterfly and companionway hatches, and miscellaneous sailing hardware, are well-placed and complement the exterior styling.
Entering the companionway, a grand staircase leads into the main salon and dining area. Traditional woodworking and trim details abound. The main dining area seats eight guests comfortably, with additional seating and a bar area to port. Three en-suite staterooms, accommodating six guests comfortably, are arranged aft. Guest cabins are well-appointed with queen berths outboard, private heads, and separate showers. The full beam master stateroom features a walk-in closet, large head with double sinks, oversized separate shower, king sized berth to port, plush settee to starboard, and a private aft companionway.
Forward of the main salon, a full beam galley is furnished with ample cold storage, 36” chef’s range, bar serving area and all other modern appliances a well-equipped galley requires. A day head for guests is located just beyond the galley to port. The crew area forward accommodates seven, including a spacious cabin with navigation desk for the captain and three separate double cabins with bunks.
