Spirit Yachts has promoted Karen Underwood to operations director.

Karen joined the boatbuilder as office manager and PA to the directors in 2015 following previous roles at Oyster Yachts and Fairline.

“Karen is an invaluable asset to the Spirit team and her promotion is well-deserved,” said Spirit Yachts MD, Nigel Stuart. “Over the last two years, Spirit has had its highest turnover ever, delivering more cubic feet of yachts per year in the company’s 26-year history.”

As well as management of all aspects of the Spirit office, Karen is responsible for customer liaison, hospitality and ensuring Spirit Yachts runs as efficiently as possible.

Karen added: “The company is going from strength to strength and I am looking forward to working alongside the directors to achieve our goals.”

Spirit currently employs a team of 61, the highest number of staff in the company’s history.
