For those of you interested in the technical specifications behind ROAM this is a boat designed for performance cruising and engineered to take the punishment of the seas. Striking the balance between performance and cruising can be challenging and it’s difficult to suit every end user. The Spirited 480 is not designed for racing but it would certainly hold its own around the buoys in light trim.
A recurring theme when talking with those who sign on to the cruising lifestyle is how well the vision and expectations align between the participants. Often there is one person in the partnership with a clear vision, energy and motivation ... and a supporter along for the ride with varying degrees of personal commitment to that same vision. In many cases, true success and fulfilment vary depending on which partner you are talking to and how honest they are about their shared experiences.
