A passionate lifelong sailor and skilled yacht designer, Sean McMillan founded Spirit Yachts in 1993. After thousands of sea miles delivering boats all around the globe, Sean had a clear vision: to build the most beautiful yachts that perform on the water.
25 years on, Spirit Yachts is comprised of a team of expert boat builders and engineers from all over the world. Based at waterside premises in Ipswich, Suffolk, Spirit Yachts designs and builds sail and power boats for performance racing and blue water cruising.
Spirit Yachts designs and builds its yachts in-house; a collaborative approach that involves the new owner from start to finish. After establishing an owner’s criteria, hand-drawn designs evolve into flawless 3D concepts using the very latest state-of-the-art software overseen by our in-house naval architects.
