LUXURY CARBON SAILINGYACHTS. BUILT IN GERMANY
Welcome to YYachts! Every luxury carbon yacht we build is a perfect reflection of our client's requirements.
We like to say that each project produces a unique new yacht. There is just one thing that never changes: our yachts always exceed even the most demanding client’s wishes, and satisfy our stringent requirements for quality.
We believe that the simpler the boat, the purer the sailing experience and the greater the pleasure. That is why our yachts are designed to emphasise the essentials of sailing, easy handling, alone or with company, anywhere in the world. Discover the reliability, safety and comfort that comes with our ‘keep it simple’ concept.
Our goal is clear and unambiguous: to use the best technology available to simplify sailing and put the joy back into the experience. Fast hull designs, the latest materials, exacting engineering and outstanding craftsmanship make our yachts ideal for occasional racing, lazy summer afternoon cruises as well as serious passagemaking.
YYachts wins Wallpaper Design Award
Britain’s Wallpaper magazine, considered the "bible of contemporary design" worldwide, honoured YYachts with one of its prestigious design awards.
In the "Cabin" category, the Y7 "Bella" came out on top, with its interior design by Norm Architects of Copenhagen. "This is a very special award," said a delighted Michael Schmidt, founder of YYachts. "We don't seem to have been completely wrong in choosing a design office that brings a fresh approach to yachting."
The top-flight independent jury included, among others, the French interior designer and current "Wallpaper Designer of the Year" Pierre Yovanovitch, Asian business tycoon Adrian Cheng, Bottega Veneta’s Creative Director Daniel Lee, and the American singer and actress Solange Knowles.
Katrine Goldstein, Managing Director at Norm Architects, commented: "In this yacht, which we have designed according to our principle of soft minimalism, one escapes for some time from constant stimuli and distractions of modern society.”

“THE CHALLENGE IS TO REDUCE A YACHT TO ITS ESSENTIALS“
Our goal is to build the best yachts available. We have teamed up with renowned designers, architects and craftsmen to deliver best-in-class yachts. YYachts is the creation of Michael Schmidt, former Admiral’s Cup Winner and a noted pioneer in the use of carbon fibre for over 40 years.
IT REQUIRES EXPERTISE AND EXPERIENCE TO ENSURE ALL THE FOUNDATIONS ARE IN PLACE FOR PURE SAILING.
YYachts can come with an all-round carefree package, uniquely tailored to your needs. Together we develop your individual yacht and recommend the right equipment.
Bella - the new Y7
The owner of the first Y7 has been cruising extensively with his brand-new yacht, BELLA. We were lucky to catch him for a few fleeting moments off the beautiful coast of Mallorca.
Explore our new Carbon Sailing Yacht
YYachts’s new Y7 is jointly developed by Michael Schmidt Yachtbau together with the American designer Bill Tripp. It combines comfortable sailing with competitive performance. But perhaps the best thing is that you can handle the Y7 alone.
