The YYachts employees have a combined total of hundreds of years of yacht building experience.

We are a real team made up of a wide variety of characters and nationalities. We discuss passionately with one another and are only satisfied when we have developed the best solutions. Everyone in our team has spent decades building boats and is still passionate about their profession.

Our common belief is simple: we only let yachts leave the shipyard with which we ourselves would sail around the world. 

Below are three of many examples of why our team is so unique.

Luca Giammattei

Luca Giammattei has been working at YYachts as Head of Production for four years. The Italian is responsible for the entire technical equipment of the yachts and has already developed numerous innovations for YYachts. Before moving to Greifswald, Giammattei worked at several Italian shipyards, where he completed a number of large yacht projects and looks back on 25 years of professional experience. He is one of the main pillars of the YYachts team.
