5 April 2022• Written by Tom McGhie

The 31.3 metre sailing yacht Open Season has been sold in-house and renamed Spirit of Malouen X, with Youri Loof of Bernard Gallay Yacht Brokerage representing both the seller and the buyer.

Constructed in carbon-fibre by Southampton-based builder Green Marine, the yacht was delivered in 2012, orginally as a Wallycento model.

In 2015, a significant refit included lengthening her by two metres and increasing her draft from 6.2 metres to 7.1 metres, enhancing her competitiveness in the Wally racing circuit.

With a resumé including victories at the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup in 2015 and 2016, Spirit of Malouen X was penned by Design Unlimted and Monk Design, while Judel-Vrolijk developed her naval architecture.

Design Unlimited interiors provide accommodation for up to six guests in three cabins, comprising one master cabin and two twin cabins, located on the lower deck. The DNV-classed yacht is crewed by a team of four, with a low 89 GT allowing her to perform at a consistently high level.

Purchased by an experienced owner, the yacht is now lined up for an extensive three-year racing program including the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup race later this year.

When not under sail she is powered by a single Yanmar BY2 diesel engine, providing 260hp.
