British luxury yacht designer and builder, Spirit Yachts, has announced that it will be exhibiting its new 12 metre power boat and tender at this month’s Cannes Yachting Festival from 8th to 13th September, and the Monaco Yacht Show from 23rd to 26th September.
Launching in Cannes’ famous Vieux Port, on Pontoon 5 in berth PAN034, the Spirit P40 showcases the yacht builder's iconic lines. The motor cruiser and superyacht tender will also be exhibiting during the Monaco Yacht Show at berth A3, Quai Antoine 1er.
The cruising option includes a double-berth open plan layout, although additional accommodation in the deck saloon can be incorporated. With dining space al fresco in the cockpit, there is the option to specify an enclosed or semi-enclosed wheelhouse. The galley is equipped with a cooker, grill and oven, along with sink, fridge and ample storage for crockery and provisions.
Sean McMillian, CEO and head designer at Spirit Yachts said, “We have applied the same level of attention to detail and technicality to the P40 as we do to our range of sailing yachts. She offers ultimate flexibility in her layout and usage options and we are looking forward to her launch at one of the most prestigious shows in the yachting calendar.
“Whilst our modern classic sailing yachts will always be our core business, the growing interest in our power boat designs presents an exciting new avenue for Spirit.”
Fully air-conditioned below deck, with a fitted 220v generator, the P40 also includes an en-suite bathroom with separate shower and an electric flushing toilet. A bimini, aft deck shower and swim platform with fold down swim ladder on the transom, provide added cruising benefits.
Displacing 4.5 tonnes, the P40 is powered by two Yanmar 260hp inboard engines that deliver a top speed of 36 knots and a cruising speed of 29 knots. The hull is fitted with four half-moon venturi chines, which draw a cushion of air under the boat and reduce drag.
Also on display at each event will be Spirit’s latest superyacht designs for a 118’ sailing yacht, and the recently launched Spirit Royale 110’ motor yacht drawings, both of which are collaborative projects with design agency Rhoades Young.
