The Hornblower yacht High Spirits is 112′ with five salons, a dance floor, solid teak bar, rare mahogany dining room table and chairs, full galley and stereo sound system. The unique appointments that many guests love are the fireplace on the main deck and the comfortable furnishings in the living room. The yacht has three luxurious staterooms.

During W.W.II, the US Navy purchased her, as they did many private yachts for the use of a patrol ship in the Pacific. In 1985 she was beautifully restored and certified by the US Coast Guard for charters.
Her elegant decor features mahogany paneling, a Chippendale design dining table and classic crystal lighting fixtures. Her main salon includes a dance floor, antique piano, a full bar and stereo system. The upper deck offers a bar and dining room with breathtaking views.
