Two boats. Lots of options

The Y8 gives you the choice. Optionally available in a DC version with a longer aft body and a secure center cockpit, or you can opt for a raised saloon with extra space in the SRD variant. Compared to the Y7, both variants offer noticeably more space to make your personal yacht even more individual.

Equal to any Y8, as well as all other Y/Yachts, the inimitable ease and performance. For greater strength and lighter weight we laminate all hulls and decks with carbon fiber and epoxy resin and anneal them until final cure

The art of simplicity

The common feature of the Y8 is the additional decline from the afterdeck. Depending on the deck layout and trim level, this is either your personal access to the private deck in the bay, or the crew's way to the work deck. So the cockpit remains reserved for the owner and his guests during cruising or regatta sailing.

Whether DC or SRD - both have in common the high quality material and design standard. Natural leather, brushed stainless steel or carbon are combined with great care with natural wood surfaces. The spare furnishing creates an airy, almost soothing feeling of space.
