British shipyard Spirit Yachts has recently received a new order for a 33.90m sailing yacht, the Spirit 111’.
This sloop-rigged yacht, which is set to be the largest build from Spirit Yachts to date, is designed by the company’s CEO and head designer Sean McMillan, whilst Rhoades Young has created the interior design concept.
Sean McMillan comments, “We are delighted to be working with Rhoades Young on Spirit Yachts’ first collaboration with an external design agency. By maximising our combined expertise, we have created an aesthetically beautiful, lightweight vessel that will be easy to handle with minimal crew. The end result will be one of the largest, single-masted modern classic wooden yachts ever built in the UK.”
Rhoades Young director Jonathan Rhoades adds, “Spirit Yachts is renowned for its build quality and elegant design, and we are looking forward to working alongside Sean and his team on what is set to be a ground-breaking new project.”
Scheduled to be launched in Summer 2019, the Spirit 111’ will begin construction this month at Spirit Yachts’ waterside headquarters in Suffolk.
Commissioned for an experienced yachtsman, who plans to attend the superyacht regattas in the Mediterranean, the vessel will be set up for both cruising and racing with carbon spars, hydraulic winches and an extensive sail wardrobe.
