Spirit Yachts to launch new superyacht tender at Cannes & Monaco shows


British classic yacht company to showcase superyacht tender at both Cannes and Monaco show. Luxury classic yacht designer and builder Spirit Yachts will be exhibiting its new 12 metre power boat at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival from 8th- 13th September and at the Monaco Boat Show from 23rd – 26th September.

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.

Launching in Cannes’ famous Vieux Port on Pontoon 5 in berth PAN034, the sophisticated Spirit P40 showcases the iconic lines and structural integrity synonymous with Spirit Yachts’ modern classic design and build. Also exhibiting in Monaco, Spirit Yachts has incorporated practicality as well as beauty into the Spirit P40, offering the flexibility of either a luxurious leisure motor cruiser or stylish superyacht tender.

The cruising option layout includes an open-plan double-berth, although additional accommodation in the deck saloon can be incorporated. With dining space below or alfresco in the cockpit, there is the option to specify an enclosed or semi-enclosed wheelhouse. The galley is well equipped with a cooker, grill and oven, along with sink, fridge and ample storage for crockery and provisions.

Spirit Yachts CEO and head designer, Sean McMillan says: “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 down below with a fitted 220v generator, the P40 also includes an en-suite 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 only 4.5 tonnes, the P40 is powered by two Yanmar 260hp inboard engines, which 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.
