At Hattiers we have a passion for sustainability and an affinity for life at sea, which is why we are incredibly excited sponsor the very first Spirit Yacht regatta in Guernsey from 25th June - 2nd July. There's only 10 days to wait and we cannot wait to see these beautiful boats in action once again following last year's Classic Yacht regatta in Cowes.
The regatta is exclusively for Spirit owners, crew and guests and it will be the first time that these stunning yachts will gather to race together. The notoriously tidal waters around Guernsey will see the fleet of Spirit Yachts take on a competitive six race series of inshore and passage races. Ashore, crew and guests will be treated to a variety of social events including Hattiers 'Devon Storm' cocktails on the dock, sunset barbeques and much more...
About Spirit Yachts, world leaders in sustainable modern classic yacht design and build.
Established in 1993, Spirit Yachts was founded by Sean McMillan and Mick Newman, who set out to offer yacht owners a beautiful, sustainable alternative to fibreglass production boats. At the forefront of sustainable sailing, Spirit Yachts produce expertly handcrafted, stunningly beautiful boats that have environmental solutions at their heart and green credentials considered at every step of the way, from every carefully sourced plank of air dried douglas fir to hybrid and fully electric motors.
From humble beginnings in the Suffolk countryside, Spirit Yachts now operates from a large waterside facility with a team of highly skilled designers, naval architects, boat builders, cabinet makers, electricians and engineers.

Interestingly, the name Spirit Yachts didn’t come from anything ethereal but is a nod to their favourite spirit, with their logo depicting a distiller’s flask. Our shared ethos, love for the ocean and fine rum makes for a harmonious and perfectly balanced partnership - one that we wholeheartedly celebrate.
