Spirit Yachts Reveals 22 Metre Sailing Yacht Spirit 72DH

British sailing yacht yard Spirit Yachts has revealed its new Spirit 72 Deckhouse yacht, which is currently under construction in Suffolk.

Due to launch, in 2021, the 22 metre yacht has been specifically designed to meet the owner’s requirements for cruising, racing and chartering in the Mediterranean.

It is the first Spirit yacht to have carbon integrated into the build, with a carbon reinforced structure linking the keel, stainless steel chain plates and mast step.

Spirit managing director Nigel Stuart said this would result in saving “over 800kg versus the stainless steel equivalent”. This will “optimise the overall performance of the yacht” on the water, he added.

The yacht will also features a Bermudan sloop rig, carbon mast and boom courtesy of `Hall Spars and a sail wardrobe from OneSails.

While the exterior of the yacht has the appearance of Spirit’s standard deckhouse designs, the interior is a “step change” for the British yard.

Notably, it is the first Spirit deckhouse yacht without a mid-level seating and navigation area in-between the cockpit and main interior. The decision to do away with this feature was to “maximise the living area and introduce a more modern style,” Sean added.

Elsewhere, the raised coachroof’s 360 degree windows above the galley allows plenty of natural light into the interior. Combined with a white finish, this creates a “bright and airy space”.

Accommodation on board is for a total of six guests and two crew. The guest quarters comprises a forward master suite and two guest twins.

On deck, the yacht features a cockpit table large enough to seat 10 people and storage for a range of water toys and rib tender.
