Spirit Yachts has teamed up with prestigious yacht designers Rhoades Young Design on the plans for a new 110’ motor yacht – the Spirit Royale.
Staying true to the classic lines and elegant wooden build synonymous with Spirit Yachts, head designer and CEO Sean McMillan and the Rhoades Young Design team have produced a majestic motor yacht design on the back of considerable interest from a yacht brokers in the Mediterranean. Jonathan Rhoades and Dick Young’s team have been involved from the very start of the yacht’s concept stage. Following in-depth discussions with Spirit on the lifestyle criteria for the yacht, Rhoades Young Design produced a General Arrangement plan, which visualises the interior and exterior yacht in stunning watercolour designs.
The accommodation onboard Spirit Royale is exciting and spacious, whilst retaining Spirit’s classical and sophisticated style. A light and airy owner’s suite located on the main deck offers a 200° panoramic view with double doors opening out onto a private foredeck. The cabin itself has an en-suite with bath, shower and twin basins as well as a large dressing room with ample hanging space and a dressing table. A writing desk and fitted settee offer options for a peaceful work and leisure space away from the main party of guests.
Careful consideration has been given to the lifestyle and the functional requirements for guests and crew. Guests have the option of two double and two twin cabins on the lower deck, with all cabins have either opening skylights or portlights as well as en-suites with separate shower cubicles and plenty of storage space. The full height staircase under an octagonal glass atrium provides access to the main saloon, lower saloon, wheelhouse and guest cabins. The spacious saloon offers impressive entertaining space with the option for furniture to be specified by the owner. With the possibility to seat ten guests for dinner, the Spirit Royale has been designed for wining and dining as well as intimate family time.
As a secondary lounging area the lower saloon has additional seating and a drinks bar. The piece de resistance of this lower saloon is the ‘fold-out’ hull section that merges the interior and exterior of the yacht for ultimate waterside luxury. The opening hull creates a large open outdoor swimming and sunbathing platform complete with swim showers and provision for tenders to come alongside and drop off guests.
The aft area on the main deck has been designed for long lazy lunches or formal dinner parties for at least ten guests with additional seating and sunbeds for relaxing in the sunshine.
On the bridge, the wheelhouse is well equipped with glass instrumentation and joystick ‘sky-hook’ control. Panoramic windows offer 360° views for the two watch keepers from their elevated seats, which are positioned forward of additional guest seating and a separate navigation table.
Back on the lower deck, a well-equipped crew area comprises a captain’s double cabin, additional twin cabin and a comfortable crew mess area. In addition, the commercially equipped galley and laundry space contains refrigerator, freezer, icemaker, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, five burner range and microwave, amongst other amenities. Crew access is direct to the main saloon without any inconvenience to guests.
Finally, an 8.5m Classic ‘Slipper’ style harbour launch and a 4m ‘Whitehall’ style sailing dinghy are housed on the upper deck, with crane launch direct to the water, and an additional 3.6m Williams jet drive RIB is housed under the foredeck.
