History of the Windjammer Spirit



Welcome aboard


The Windjammer Spirit is a 47-foot Newport Horizon Trawler. She is powered by 2 185-horsepower Cummins diesels and can reach a maximum speed of 10 knots. Normal crusing speed is 7 to 8 knots. The vessel is equipped with safety appliances and life-saving equipment to safely accomodate 25 guests on board. She has the latest in electronic navigation and safety equipment on the bridge, including certified lighting, radar, VHF and AIS equipment for Day or Night sailing. Safety of our guests is our prime directive, and as such the vessel is fully-equipped with fire detection equipment and fire extinguishers throughout. A canvas roof covering the top deck of the ship. The roof has 7 feet of headroom and ensures that you will be able to watch the world go by, feel the breeze in your hair, and see the amazing sights of Panama while being seated comfortably in the shade out of the sun. She is equipped with 2 electric heads (toilets) and a full stand-up fresh-water shower. She also has a fresh-water shower at the stern of the ship for rinsing the salt off after a relaxing swim. We are also equipped with diving equipment and a tank-filler compressor to fill dive tanks. We are also equipped with a full music system and weatherproof external speakers on all decks. We have a large selectio of music on board and we can also accept a line input from your IPod or other device should you decide to bring music of your choice.

Cruising on the ‘Jammer on Panama’s Pacific side is a unique experience. There are not many places in the world where you are able to get a front row seat to the world’s shipping scene. Imagine being as close as 200 feet to a 950-foot container ship that stands 180 feet above the waterline and carries as many as 4500 containers! Watch as vessels of all types and sizes enter and depart the Panama Canal, carrying the world’s cargo to far-off destinations. See the skyline of Panama or explore the beautiful Amador Causeway – all from the comfort of your own ship. We run Day or Night, Rain or Shine.


Visit Taboga Island, just 90 minutes from Panama. This spectacular island has warm, clear water for swimming from the ship. The island hosts a variety of Bed & Breakfasts, Hotels, and small bars where the beer is always cold and the people always have a smile on their face. The beach is always a big hit with guests, but those that truly want to relax will be happy sipping a cold beer while hanging from the swim grid in the water on the stern of the ship. For the brave and athletic, a 90-minute hike to the “Cross” at the top of the island is a winner, and to the victor goes incredible views of the island, Panama City, and the islands around Taboga. It’s not easy, but it’s well worth it! For those less ambitious, the walk into town will show you many beautiful sites including the oldest church in Latin America. After your walk in town or your hike to the top, relax with a cold beverage at the beachfront Ocean Rock Cafe or back on the ship. And there’s no better way to clean off some sweat than a jump into the clear waters from the stern of the ship!

During the right season, experience the thrill of a lifetime and go Whale Watching with us! July through October is generally considered whale season, and while we never know when the whales are going to come up and do some “People-Watching”, it is an amazing sight to see when it happens. Check out this video for a sample:

We also cruise to Contadora, which is the Northern jump-off point for the Las Perlas islands. Contadora is a jewel, and the Las Perlas are a “secret” hideaway from the hustle-and-bustle of the city life. There are numerous hotels and resorts in Contadora to discover, and what better way to arrive for a few days on the island than on your own schedule on your own private vessel.

The ‘Jammer also boasts a large assortment of fishing equpiment on board, and the waters around Panama are full of fish just waiting to be hooked! Our guests have had great luck bringing in 20, 30 and even 40 pounders simply trolling off the stern of the vessel while passing through the anchorage on the way to Taboga. Your choice, your schedule, your options. This is what we do!
