YYachts launches Tripp 90 - a 90-foot carbon sloop
The Tripp 90 will celebrate her world premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival before setting sail on an Atlantic crossing.
YYachts continues its successful cooperation with Bill Tripp. The Greifswald shipyard's custom division just launched a 90-foot carbon sloop, the design and construction of which came from the drawing board of the US designer. The yacht - one of the largest sailing yachts ever built in Germany – has been ordered by an American customer who plans to use the yacht for both racing and worldwide cruising. However, before she sails with her new owner, the yacht will undergo intensive testing on the Baltic Sea near Greifswald. Bill Tripp is also on site and enthusiastic about the performance: "The yacht sails exceptionally well. Together with Michael Schmidt Yachtbau, we have set a standard here that others first have to achieve."
The interior design of the Tripp 90 is by Winch Design of London, and is minimalist and open cut. With stylistic inspiration from the East Coast of the U.S. and mid-century Scandinavian influences, as well as the use of soft leather and light oak wood, the ambiance exudes understated elegance.

The almost 30-metre-long PREVAIL from YYachts' custom division is a finalist in two categories at the BOAT International Design and Innovation Awards.
