Spirit Yachts Launches 21.7 Metre P70 Motor Yacht Flagship

Suffolk-based yard Spirit Yachts has launched its 21.7 metre motor yacht flagship, the P70.

The yacht, which is the largest motor yacht ever built by the yard, hit the water at the Ipswich based yard. The yacht will remain at the yard for the autumn for ongoing interior work before being handed over to the owner.

The launch comes after the yard launched its 33.9 metre flagship Spirit 111 sailing yacht on October 8.

Commissioned by a “knowledgeable owner” and designed by Spirit Yachts’ head designer Sean McMillan, the P70 motor yacht is a "modern classic", the yard said.

The yacht has been completely customised to suit the owner's itinerary and criteria, which includes the ability to cruise 1,000 nautical miles across the North Sea at an average of 18 knots.

Following delivery, the yacht will be based in the UK and spend the summer in the Baltic.

The P70 build followed the same core processes as Spirit’s sailing yacht hulls, the yard said, including a layout stipulated by the owner.

This sees the master cabin situated forward separate from the rest of the guest accommodation. The ensuite cabin is equipped with a bath and single ensuite cabin, that can double as an office.

The rest of the accommodation and living area is located on the lower deck. Aft of the galley and the main saloon are the two twin guest cabins, which share a head and shower. There will be no crew on board.

The wheelhouse sits midships on the main deck leading into the main saloon and features a TV, bar and panoramic views from the forward windows.

The yacht also features a hydraulic crane capable of deploying a 3.7 metre RIB. Twin Man i6 800hp engines provide a cruising speed of 18 knots and top speed of 25 knots.

Spirit managing director Nigel Stuart said the P70 launch was a “significant milestone” in the history of the yard.

“While the core business remains sailing yachts, we are seeing increasing demand for motor yachts tailored to suit an owner’s cruising plans. We are responding to that demand with innovation and expertise devoted to the power range.”
