September 2012 Sailing Yacht of the Month: Spirit Yachts’ Gaia

Built in 2007 by Spirit Yachts, Gaia embodies the concept of a performance sailing superyacht. At 100 feet (30.6 meters) LOA and reportedly capable of speeds exceeding 25 knots, Gaia is among the fastest of her size ever built.

Here’s a look at Gaia, with six staterooms for guests.
