News in overnight that Alex Braden and Matt Albert of Yachting Partners International have been instructed by the owner of the 43.9m Free Spirit to reduce the price by €6 million. Currently under construction at Bloemsma & van Breemen and due for delivery in February 2010, Free Spirit has five cabins and extensive specifications including Naiad zero speed stabilisers.
