Built with eco-friendly design in mind, some of the main features of the vessel is low fuel consumption and sustainable materials used in the construction.
The smooth lines in the unique interior decor incorporate walls, bulkheads and furniture into a flowing design. The interior spaces designed without portholes have a warm and inviting atmosphere with a soft colour palette. Jonathan Rhoades explains. “The client had recently visited Antelope Canyon in Arizona, and this was the catalyst for the idea of the warm soft flowing walls creating unique focal points within the room. These elegant forms not only twist and peel to create counters but uniquely create the intimate backdrops for the highly detailed ‘steam pieces’ which blur the line between furniture and sculpture.”
Spirit CEO and head designer Sean McMillan said: “A single-masted wooden yacht of this size that can be owner-driven is nothing less than a feat of engineering. The yacht’s impressive strength to weight ratio, a carbon rig and lightweight sails made using the latest 3D thermo moulding technology will allow the owner to compete competitively in the Mediterranean regattas.”
Accommodation onboard is offered for up to eight guests in the following layout: a master stateroom, a VIP suite and two double guest cabins.
The BMW battery banks are charged by energy regeneration system while the yacht is underway. A 100 kW Torqueedo electric propulsion system is powered by two generators or a lithium battery.
SPIRIT 111 will undergo outfitting and sea trials prior to her delivery closer to the end of the year.
