In Production: Spirit 111

Recommended Posts

 

Probably some of the most beautiful modern production boats, Spirit is working on a 111 now.  There are pictures of the hull about to be splashed - pretty boat!

But the interior has yet to be done.  All they have right now are 3D CAD drawings.  I have seen interiors of other Spirits and am usually impressed.  But this?

Boat is being trialled (weather permitting) at the moment in/near Ipswich/Harwich.

And from pictures I've seen, the interior renderings are pretty much spot-on representations of real-life.

Rig arrived at yard in September:

I'm sure much bigger brains than mine have worked this stuff out, but man, that sure doesn't look like a lot of lateral resistance to my eye.

How ever many millions of dollars have gone into the planning and design of this yacht...and THAT's the keel they through on it!??!  Did they not want any struggles with calculating the center?

i don't know shit from shortcake, but I'll bet that on a boat that size part of the design brief will be a maximum draft based on the proposed cruising area. So once you've got max draft all you can really do is make the chord as long as necessary to get the thing to sail?

The interior has so many clean lines and no obstructions, I feel bad for any paid crew that will need to pickup all the crap off the cabin floors.

Is that really "state of the art"?  Or in keeping with the retro look of the boat did they just scroll back to the best thinking of the 1950's for the underbody?  

Maybe they plan to have a diver all geared up just hanging in a closet to go clear crap off that thing.

i have a feeling they would end up with something that draws 18ft - this is 13, and i think we can be pretty sure that minimizing draft  - without lifting or canting - was a request of the client.

so, to make the exercise realistic.., we should ask the geniuses what they would do while still staying within the design constraints

Ya you might get a bit of extra performance there, a few secs per mile upwind, if you engineered the shit out of it.  I'm guessing that the original rectangle planform is a fabricated shape, which makes the build a hell of a lot easier, and might also have a sump and/or tankage in it.

It's all about the kelp. And if saving pennies on the keel for a 20 million dollar yacht is in store, then do this:

Figure of speech. And boats this size tend to get around....I honestly find it absolutely amazing that nobody notices the problem that torpedo bulb creates. You go from a relatively minor problem of clearing a fouled lobster trot line to having a significantly bigger problem.

Part of the foil issue is the visual bulk of all that overhang. Subtract the bow and stern and compare the keel to the wetted surface and it looks a little more appropriate. It still has a problematic shape, but  as long as the crew does not spill the owners martini backing down off stuff it should be OK. I also suspect the design called for a pretty stiff boat, and the hull itself does not have a lot of inherent stability, hence the big bulb.

SPIRIT 111

Beauty, performance and sustainability

At the request of her overseas buyer, the Spirit 111 has been designed and built in-house by Spirit Yachts to be one of the most environmentally friendly sailing superyachts ever created. The sloop-rigged yacht is also the largest single-masted wooden yacht to be built in the UK since Shamrock V in the 1930s.

Spirit Yachts worked collaboratively with leading marine and automotive suppliers to deliver on the owner’s eco brief.  A Torqeedo electric propulsion system using a 100kW motor will propel the yacht silently for up to 40nm at eight knots from battery power alone.  Whilst sailing, the propulsion system will regenerate the four BMW lithium battery banks by rotating the propeller shaft whilst the yacht is under sail. All power-consuming components have been carefully selected to be highly efficient and will use minimal energy without impacting performance or comfort.

 

Using electric propulsion to regenerate the batteries whilst sailing, the yacht will be able to operate for up to four days at anchor without having to plug into shore power or start the two onboard generators.  When the yacht crosses the Atlantic, as long as there is adequate wind, she will not need to consume any fossil fuels.

The air conditioning uses variable speeds with eco options via battery or shore power and the galley has been designed with ultimate efficiency in mind.  The fridge and freezer were built with Cryogel insulation to ensure minimal power consumption whilst holding low temperatures.  Water is heated using a Webasto system, which only heats water on demand ensuring no wasted water or energy, and the heated water is stored within high density insulation and high efficiency transfer coils for rapid heat transfer and temperature retention.

The Spirit 111 is also one of few superyachts capable of cruising without professional crew.  Energy efficient Lewmar hydraulic deck hardware and OneSails GBR (East) 4T Forte sails made from recyclable materials will be fitted to a Hall Spar carbon fibre mast and in-boom furling to facilitate short-handed sailing.

The interior of the Spirit 111 was created in partnership with Rhoades Young, which is Spirit Yachts’ first collaboration with an external design agency. Rhoades Young developed the initial concept for a unique, curved interior, which Spirit Yachts’ design team developed and brought to life together in the final plans.

Down below, walls and bulkheads flow in an ‘S’ shape through the interior, which has a natural look and feel thanks to the combination of exposed Sipo, teak and American Walnut timbers on show.  A bespoke, curved American Walnut seating arrangement takes centre stage in the open plan saloon-galley and C-shaped arrangements created from steamed timber curve over the beds in the owner’s and VIP cabins. Discreet doors with hidden, sensor-activated recesses, rather than visible door handles, ensure smooth lines and a contoured look throughout.

The interior lighting is controlled by ambient light sensors and a GPS clock to control the brightness and warmth of light ensuring there is no difference between outside and inside. There will be no pockets of shade and light as you would normally have.

The interior will have almost no light switches; motion sensors will turn lights on and off during the day.  At night, sensors under the beds will detect if someone is up and light the way to the nearest ensuite.  If a guest starts to go elsewhere within the interior, the system will deduce which way they are going and light the relevant areas in a very soft warm light.

With no requirements for crew accommodation, guests have the choice of two double ensuite aft cabins or a starboard side double VIP cabin.  The forward cabin holds the spacious master suite, complete with curved sofas built into the side of the hull, double bed and ensuite.  All heads have rounded, solid timber sinks integrated into the worktop and power showers.

That's a slippery hull. The keel is pelnty big to do a good job to windward. There isn't much displacement, and the rig is carbon and efficient. She'll go to windward just fine methinks.

I agree with Left, the forces on a huge sloop rig do not leave much margin for error. I also wonder about maneuvering and docking a 111 foot long 58 ton boat with no professional help. Perhaps they will dingy crew aboard as they approach port?

It would be fascinating to hear their rationalizations.

Some years back I ran across some statistics on Al Gore's energy use. He spent more energy heating the swimming pool at one of his huge houses than my wife & I spent in total on energy.

And his was created from coal or nuke while ours is hydro.

As far as the keel and lateral resistance is concerned, I am of the opinion that our eyes are perhaps deceiving us. The boat has so much overhangs on either end that it looks much bigger than she actually is. Try looking at her with boat ends chopped away. I mean LOA = LWL as most modern designs. Then the area of the keel doesn't look out of way.

I do not know the specs. But perhaps the keel has a mechanism to be lowered  as well.

The design brief was for it to be sailed without professional crew. Part of the reason that keel looks stubby is that it has a long chord length. It may not be a particularly efficient keel shape, but it will be hard to stall, which should be good for non-professional (read less experienced) sailors.

I once had a sweet gig solo looking after a newish Jenneau 51 (for 4 months or so) penned by Briand, some years back. I made Syracuse/Sicily my home base harbour (on hook) and having a Baroque backdrop of an eve... with perfectly placed lateral windows showing the water glistening with a horozon line made for mesmeric pondering while sat at the saloon table.

Ditto Oyster run seascape saloon windows for the same reason.

You are right.  I didnt notice that before.  They should have had more natural light below, maybe through sky lights atleast, but port holes would have been a nice touch.

In German, Geist has to meanings: Gespenst (Ghost) or 'Bewusstsein' , something that amounts to 'spirit', or 'sense' (probably meant here, given the boatyard's name).

For German eyes, I must say: it looks quite odd to see such a beautiful boat named 'Geist'. Normally, I'm all for puns, but this one ... nah, doesn't click.

Spirit make some amazing yachts, but it looks like they had an off year.

I guess the owner for what he asked for. Shows that you can't buy class.

Much smaller boat, much better loo. This is how wood and lightning go hand in hand.

Spirit makes boats that are just as beautiful on the outside as Sweden boats are on the inside.
