For many owners, superyacht sails are a blank canvas for creating truly spectacular designs that catch the eye wherever you cruise. We round up six of the best superyacht spinnaker designs in the world.

The 32 metre Southern Ocean Marine sailing yacht Danneskjöld embodies the pirate persona of her fictional namesake in Atlas Shrugged, with a dramatic statement sail created by North Graphics.

Nothing gets the heart racing like the billowing spinnaker of a J Class yacht — and this tri-colour design on Velsheda is one of the most distinctive. Launched by Camper & Nicholsons in 1933, this 38.5 metre classic sailing yacht has been immaculately maintained ever since, with her most recent refit taking place at British yard Pendennis last year.

Mari Cha III's fierce spinnaker

Mari Cha Best Spinnakers

Iconic high-performance sailing yacht Mari-Cha III, currently for sale, is a speed demon that has claimed many a racing title. She is said to be able to reach speeds of 17 knots in only 14 knots of wind, and is assisted in the cause by new sails recently delivered by Doyle. Launched by Sensation Yachts in 1997 to a design by Philippe Briand, Mari-Cha III has already logged more than 5,000 miles sailing with her new Doyle Stratis ICE sails, but the sail that catches the eye most is the dragon spinnaker that she flies. A telling sign she's a fierce competitor indeed!
