More details

Now, in 2020, under new ownership and back in her native Sweden, UNITED SPIRIT continues to both intrigue and turn heads with her colourful history, speed and style.

With a history that truly spans a lifetime, UNITED SPIRIT was commissioned by Swedish industrialist and financier Thorsten Kreuger. Fast forward from her launch in 1939 to the 1980s and EDI as she was then known was still the fastest luxury yacht in the world and caught the attention of another Swede, Sven Jönsson. EDI became the platform for Jönsson to perfect his Fagerdala hull reinforcement system, which ensured over a decade of extensive investment.

The Fagerdala project was left at one yacht in the wake of the 1992 financial crisis and EDI had many suitors for her purchase, including Swedish Royalty, but found herself in the playground of the rich and famous on the French Riviera, renamed UNITED SPIRIT and hot property as the “speeding Swede” for yacht charters from Monaco, Antibes, Cannes and St. Tropez.
