Lasting from may 2017 in British Suffolk construction 33,9-metre Maxi sailing yacht Spirit 111 moves in full swing and we will soon enter the final stage. After launch, scheduled for next summer, it will be the largest single-masted wooden sailing boat, created in the country since the 1930-ies.
Meanwhile, representatives of Spirit Yachts and then tease sailing lovers, gradually revealing interesting details of the project.
for example, demonstrating in all its glory renders unusual interior of the yacht, described as “an endless swirl of organic shapes”. or talking about her future sailing wardrobe.
Recall that the Spirit 111 project developed by CEO and chief designer of Spirit Yachts, Sean McMillan (Sean McMillan). Interiors for boats invented the Yang Rhodes (Rhoades Young) — this is the first time when the yard works with third-party specialist.
On Board will be able to accommodate eight people. Below deck (which already took their place on the boat) hides a saloon combined with galley, and three sleeping cabins (master, guest and VIP), each with its own bathroom. The hallmarks of the interior Spirit 111 steel rounded lines not only furniture but also the walls, and the predominance of wood as a finishing material. Maximum width of the body Spirit 111 — 6.4 meters.
Proud to be her living room, soft play area divided into two spaces.
Sofas (as, indeed, and headboards in the cabins) for Spirit 111 manually created will Fennell (Fennell Will) and Ben Jackson (Ben Jackson). Overall length inch walnut planks used in the design process of furniture, reaches 1.2 km and Generally the creation of this artwork took more than 1000 man-hours.
“The creation of these sofas was technically very challenging. To meet the required standards, we need to keep in mind the limitations of each aspect. It’s a pile of secure micro solution, which we accepted continuously throughout the construction process and which have enabled us to achieve an end result. It is difficult to keep in mind all the details. You are so absorbed in work that until the last moment not to notice that she had reached a climax,” said Fennell.
Interestingly, under the deck of the Spirit 111 no light switch. This is another solution which is allowed to make the wall completely smooth. It became possible thanks to the “smart light”. The motion sensors are triggered automatically, “following” a man, alone send a signal to ignite or extinguish the electricity in a particular area. Most importantly, what hope is there for the owners is the fact that the sensors will not be triggered, if during rolling motions something will fall from the table.
In the sleeping quarters system is even more helpful: she knows how to turn on the light in the nearest bathroom when someone got out of bed at night.
The customer and future owner of the Spirit 111 — enthusiastic young sailor, who plans to participate on a boat in superyacht regattas in the Mediterranean. So the sailing closet of the boat will be rich: in addition to mainsail, Spinnaker and headsail for her ordered an FFR (flat remove the Reacher) and remove assymetric. Total sail area of 450 sq. m.
111 to Spirit fit and for racing and relaxed cruising, its mast reinforced with carbon. In addition, onboard will appear hydraulic winches.
Deck boats are designed to have all the team was always at hand, regardless of whether it intends to participate in the race or relax. At the same time, the cockpit is clearly separated area of ship management and relaxation area, so that in them people will not interfere with each other. The same purpose is the design of hydrocarbon mast and boom Hall Spar, inside of which will be phased out of the sail.
Another wish of the future owner was eco-friendly boats. Young sailor wants for comfortable stay it was sufficient to spend a minimum of fuel. So in the Spirit project 111 has a motor, which complement the four lithium battery. It will be used for short distances or during maneuvering. If long passages to the engine still can not be avoided, the boat has two spare generator.
As planned, once the boat gets to go in “pure” sailing mode, the system will automatically recharge the batteries. The idea of economical appeal to the Spirit 111 owner will not need other energy sources, except these batteries.
The green aboard the Spirit 111 will be the air conditioning system and appliances in the galley. The water pump and the water heating will be so energy efficient as possible.
All this AFTER launching make Spirit 111 “one of the most environmentally friendly boats in the world.”
The sails for the yacht will be manufactured of material suitable for recycling. That’s why they ordered from OneSails: it is simply the only manufacturer in the world that produces these sails.
“Spirit 111 is a very interesting project, which United the leading suppliers of boat equipment in the UK. The sails of this boat, most likely, the largest ever created on the East coast of the country,” proudly said the representative of the OneSails John Parker (John Parker).
According the shipyard, the membrane sail will also introduce electronic chips, the data from which will help to optimize the course of the yacht. It is not clear whether referring to “evenly spaced electronic” or will it be something else. However, whatever it was chips, they will definitely come in handy when Spirit 111 will participate in the race.
