Spirit Yachts Discuss An Exciting Collaboration

By Paul Joseph

Spirit Yachts are part of a rich heritage of British boat building that endures to this day. But it is also a company that continues to push the envelope of innovation – demonstrated by the recent announcement of an exciting new collaboration.

We sat down with Sam Whitworth, Marine Engineer at Spirit Yachts, at the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show to find out more about the firm’s new partnership with British counterparts Rhoades Young.

“At Spirit we take a very progressive view to collaborations,” he told us. “Spirit are a world renowned yacht builder and Rhoades Young have a lot of years of launching large superyachts, so together we are really able to look though these projects and I think the next few years will be very interesting times for us and Rhoades Young.”

He continued: “We’re very fortunate in the UK in the sense that we’ve built a reputation across the boat building industry for quality of construction and engineering. So at Spirit through the downturn we focussed very heavily on design and engineering and that put us in a very strong position coming out of the downturn to take our yachts and deliver them across the world and try to build the brand we know we’re capable of."
