Customer Success at World Superyacht Awards

Spirit-yachts-geistCongratulations to Spirit Yachts on winning Sailing Yacht of the Year 2021 in the Boat International World Superyacht Awards 2021.

At 33.9m long, Geist was built by Spirit Yachts with Naval Architecture and exterior design by Sean McMillan of Spirit Yachts and interior design by Tom Smith of Spirit Yachts and Rhoades Young Design. She is a classical yacht built using sustainable materials, whilst minimising the impact on the environment.

Geist and the team at Spirit Yachts have utilised advanced technology keeping it out of sight for aesthetic reasons, and her ‘environmental heart’ should not be overlooked. The judges at the awards felt she is a mix of top quality, traditional beauty, innovative interior design and advanced technology.

Geist is equipped with an OMS Sail Control Cylinder package, custom made for this project, which included double acting stainless vang, backstays and traveller & halyard rams.

“It has been a pleasure supplying Geist and Spirit Yachts with custom hydraulic cylinders,” comments Mark Barwell Sales Director for OMS. “Their craftsmanship and attention to detail are second to none, and this project is simply stunning. With several other (soon to be launched) projects from Spirit Yachts featuring OMS equipment, we look forward to a future of working together.”
