Blithe Spirit is a Monk designed motor yacht built in 1947 by Thomas Fenner of Vancouver Shipyard.

Blithe Spirit is a part of British Columbia’s coastal history, with some of her colorful adventures found in the current owner’s father, Jim Spilsbury’s books; Spilsbury’s Album & Spilsbury’s Coast.

Blithe Spirit is built of double red cedar planking, which was re-caulked and refastened with stainless steel fasteners in 2005/2006. Well maintained by knowledgeable owners who have loved her since 1955. She is an extremely capable and comfortable west coast cruiser in great condition.
