Notes

An earlier version was known as the NORTH AMERICAN 23. It was renamed after North American Yachts was sold off by powerboat manufacturer Glastron.
The SPIRIT 23 was also available with a fixed keel (See Spirit 23K).
Also available with either a standard coach roof or a lifting 'pop top'. Headroom with the "pop top" up = 6.17ft.
SPIRIT 23 was built in Austin, Texas, USA.
