Spirit Yachts unveils new Spirit 72 Deckhouse

by Spirit Yachts 22 Aug 2022 03:47 UTC

Spirit Yachts has revealed its new Spirit 72DH (Deckhouse) sailing yacht. Launched earlier this year, the custom Spirit 72DH (Deckhouse) was designed to meet a European owner's criteria for cruising, racing, and chartering in the Mediterranean.

From the exterior, the Spirit 72DH has the long overhangs, flush decks and raised coachroof of all Spirit Deckhouse designs. Down below, she houses a step change in Spirit interior design.

Spirit Yachts CEO and Head of Design Sean McMillan said, "The 72DH is the first Spirit deckhouse without a 'mid-level' seating and navigation area linking the cockpit and the main interior space."

Sean continued: "The owners wanted to introduce a more modern style, so we opened up the interior to let in more natural light and maximise the central entertaining space. White satin panels and an LED lighting system complement the natural timbers but stay true to the contemporary brief."

The port side galley is well-equipped for private and charter guests, with an induction hob, dishwasher, fridge-freezer and microwave. Opposite the galley on the starboard side is a navigation area and chart table.

In the centre of the yacht's interior is the spacious saloon, which has seating for eight around a Sipo Mahogany expanding table, which can be lowered to create an extra bed. A starboard side sofa completes the central seating area.

Accommodation for eight is split across one crew and three guest cabins. A forward master suite comprises a king-sized bed, a banquette sofa on the starboard side, a hand-crafted dressing table with integrated jewellery cabinet. The accompanying ensuite includes an electric toilet, basin, and separate shower cubicle.

Guests have the option of two aft twin-bed cabins on the port and starboard sides. Both cabins are ensuite with an electric toilet, basin and shower. A twin crew cabin forward of the saloon completes the interior, which has air conditioning throughout.

On deck, the Spirit 72DH has a Bermudan sloop rig and is well equipped for performance cruising or occasional racing. Carbon mast and boom from Hall Spars and nitronic rod rigging complement electric Lewmar winches. A sail wardrobe from OneSails comprises a mainsail, self-tacking jib and conventional jib, code zero, and an asymmetric spinnaker. The headsails are fitted to an electric furler below deck and the asymmetric is attached to a rotating padeye on the bow for short-handed sailing.

A Yanmar 4LV150 engine with a high output Mastervolt alternator will deliver a maximum speed of 10knots or 8knots whilst cruising. A small and efficient generator is fitted for battery recharging or to support the electric oven and air conditioning. The yacht also has the option to integrate Solbian solar panels into the aft deck to assist in regenerating the batteries.

The cockpit has seating for up to ten people around a central table with an integrated drinks fridge. To make the most of summer cruising in the Mediterranean, the 72DH has deck storage for a range of watersports toys and an F-Rib tender.
