Spirit Yachts will be displaying its latest sailing yacht, a Spirit 72, at this year’s Southampton Boat Show from 15th to 24th September.
Making its UK debut at the show, the 22.1m Spirit 72 is a Bermudan sloop designed for long distance cruising and regatta racing. The yacht displays all Spirit Yachts’ iconic design hallmarks including long overhangs, flush decks, and curved deckhouse with integrated fan windows.
Spirit Yachts’ Managing Director Karen Underwood commented, “We are thrilled to showcase the Spirit 72 at this year’s Southampton Boat Show, where she is sure to create a spectacle. She is a stunning example of our world-class design and craftsmanship expertise, and we look forward to welcoming visitors onboard.”
Spirit Yachts’ Production and Design Director Julian Weatherill added, “Interest in the Spirit 72 is already high. She is a timelessly elegant yacht that has the sailing performance for an experienced sailor and the simplicity in her deck layout for a first-time buyer. Having built three 72s already this is a proven design, which can be customised to create a unique yacht for any client.”
Delivering on the owner’s brief for performance racing and cruising, the Spirit 72 has a light displacement of 28 tonnes, lightweight, carbon ECsix rigging, and carbon spars from Hall Spars. Complimenting her rigging is a wardrobe of performance cruising and racing sails by OneSails, including a recyclable 4T FORTE racing main sail and jib.
