5 Best Spinnakers Spotted on board Charter Yachts

Especially designed for sailing off the wind from a reaching course to a downwind and notoriously difficult to handle, a spinnaker sail allows yachts to beautifully 'fly' across blue waters. In a racing scenario, the design of a sailing yacht's spinnaker announces their intentions to competitors and could potentially help a superyacht secure regatta glory. 

Bright, bold or in theme with the yacht's name - the distinctive design of spinnakers can be admired from near or far. YachtCharterFleet have carefully selected the 5 most eye-catching designs below!

This pedigree Perini Navi build's fierce black spinnaker clearly are conducive to success, as sailing yacht SILENCIO recently demonstrated by beating the competition to recently take home the 2015 Millennium Cup in New Zealand. The intimidating combination of the image of her lion and black background highlights how SILENCIO very much intends to be taken seriously during a regatta. Offering outstanding sailing performance, with other accolades to her name including the 2013 Perini Navi Cup, she sleeps up to 10 guests within five cabins on a luxury charter.

Another Perini Navi-build leads the way, with the eye-catching spinnaker on board 59m sailing yacht SEAHAWK reinforcing her agile, yet graceful performance in the ocean as she soars. The spinnaker's sharp, red background reinforces the fear this powerful superyacht hopes to instil in its regatta competitors, with the image also appearing on the yacht's transom. Boasting next generation fully recessed furlers, captive winches and carbon fiber rigging. SEAHAWK can sleep up to 12 guests within six cabins.
