About this Nordia 65 Ketch

Ex Gordonstoun School Yacht built by Nodia Vam Dan 1969.

A stunning 65 ft twin mast ketch that is a highly capable ocean sailor with the hull design to make good pace over any sea. She boasts superb handling and sturdy sea keeping offering the potential of safe but at the same time exhilarating passage.

Sea Spirit have been undergoing an extensive refit to get her back into class A condition which has involved a complete hull and deck re-plate and some on deck layout changes to ensure she meets not only current MCA regulation standards but is also much more versatile for pleasure cruising and holidays.

Below deck offers a new layout with private crew quarters and potential for three good sized double cabins. Obviously a new owner has the opportunity to create their own preferred layout here.

Sadly, due to work commitments and travel requirements over the last few years it has been difficult to make the intended progress with this fantastic yacht and she is now looking for a new owner who will complete the refit and bring her back to her former glory. This project represents a fantastic opportunity to own and create a classic super yacht with modern technology and sophistication as well as a comfortable interior.

Please check out her Facebook page where many ex-students have comments and photos about her. She is mentioned in lots of articles and press and the latest addition being Mary berry’s memoirs. A famous boat.

The most recent plan was to convert her to a houseboat with a mooring in London, which would have allowed a healthy return. This also meant she still had the option to later have the full refit completed, back to a blue water sailing yacht when required.

With increased work commitments it has become very difficult to find the time to manage and complete this project.

Sea Spirit has under gone a major rebuild of the hull and deck and without doubt that she is stronger and safer than she ever was.

List of renovation work that’s been completed to date.

New 5 mm steel deck

Most of the hull have been replaced in 6 mm steel.

Multiple frames replaced.

Concrete bilge cover removed and covered in new steel sheet (will never fail)

Prop shaft lowered including new engine beds to increase cabin space.

New portholes to include new brass portholes

New floor frames

New steel bulkheads.

New front dog house with grand spiral staircase leading to front accommodation.

New rear wheel house with navigation/Coms area and stairs to crew area

New rudder

The boat has been thoroughly prepared and painted inside with specialist paints.

She does have original masts and rigging but the engine was underpowered so she will need a new unit.

Certified MCA approved contractors have professionally done all work.

The really hard, dirty, and expensive parts of the project have now been completed, the next phase is the much more pleasurable of the interior fit out and getting her ready to re-launch.

The first few photos show her original condition and the rest as she is now.

Loads of photos on her Facebook profile listed above.

She has had a fortune spent on her so absolute bargin.
