Virgin Fire was designed and built by veteran multihull sailor Joe Colpitt and Gold Coast Yachts for his specific purposes. What resulted is a yacht of exceptional sailing performance with a large simple living accomodation. Virgin Fire is an ideal cruising yacht for the Caribbean. She is also very much a competitive race boat. Virgin Fire would make a serious world cruiser with a few modifications.

There are two double berths. One is located just passed the forward beam / bulkhead structure, the other is the settee in the main cabin which may be converted into a double berth.
A walk-thru of the boat beginning at the bow: Collision bulkhead, large sail locker with a large hatch directly overhead, double bunk with storage under and then hanging lockers port and starboard built into the wing fairings with stowage beyond. Passing under the main beam finds a navigators bunk to port with shelves and the head to starboard next to the daggerboard trunk with additional storage outboard. Continuing aft you step up into main cabin area with an 8’ galley counter to port with shelves outboard. A comfortable U-shaped settee is to starboard. The settee converts to a single or double berth with the navigation station on the forward end of settee. There is storage under the raised cabin sole (also the location of the built-in water tanks).
Finally exiting the main cabin we reach the cockpit which is quite commodious at 5' 6" x 11’.
