YYachts builds first 90 feet yacht

The Custom Division of the shipyard is currently manufacturing a design by Bill Tripp with an interior by Andrew Winch.

YYachts continues its successful collaboration with Bill Tripp. The Custom Division of the Greifswald based shipyard is currently building a 90 feet long carbon sloop, of which the design and construction are created by the American naval architect. The yacht is being built on behalf of an American customer who intends to use the yacht for both regatta sailing and for worldwide cruising.
Dirk Zademack, Managing Director of YYachts, says: "With Bill Tripp we are collaborating with one of the best Naval Architects in the world. After working on the Y7 with him, we are now implementing the Tripp 90 resulting in our collaboration becoming more intense. This will soon be followed by another example".

The new yacht, called Tripp 90, is another example of the Custom Division of the Greifswald based shipyard. Previously, the 22 meter long "Eugen Seibold", an innovative research vessel for the Swiss Werner Siemens Foundation, has already been built there.

The goal of the development process for the Tripp 90 was to create  competitive performance on the race course in combination with  comfortable sailing behavior. This is achieved by YYachts' standard weight saving method in the construction of the yacht: hull, inner structure and rig of the Tripp 90 are made of carbon.

The fact that all halyards and sheets are operated from the steering columns makes the yacht extremely user-friendly; she can be sailed with a very small crew.

The interior design of the Tripp 90 is by London based Winch Design. This is the third time Tripp Design and Winch Design have worked together on a sailing yacht, previous collaborations are "Shaman" in 1997 and "Alithia" in 2002. The spacious interior is minimalistic with an open layout and plenty of natural light. Stylistic inspirations from the east coast of the USA and Scandinavian influences from the middle of the last century in combination with the use of soft leather and light oak wood give the ambience a restrained elegance.

The owner gave particular importance to the design of the deckhouse - his wish was to be able to sit in the saloon and look out at the sea. Bill Tripp therefore drew a deck saloon surrounded with glass. This does not only takes into account the owner's wishes but also floods the interior with plenty of daylight.
