The Y9 will be the new flagship of YYachts and the first model that differs from the Y7 and the Y8 in one essential point. While the Y7 can be sailed single-handed and the Y8 by an experienced family, the Y9 will require a professional crew.
Built entirely of carbon fibre to maximise the advantages of a light yacht, the Y9 features naval architecture and exterior design by Tripp Design.

After discussions with several owners and intensive research, we established 90 feet as the optimum length for the new YYachts flagship, and sketched out her key characteristics:
We have combined all this in the Y9. The first hull is already sold and will be delivered in summer 2021. Her owner will use her for cruising as well as for regattas.
Anyone who employs a professional crew on a yacht should create a good working atmosphere. An unwritten law in yachting is: Happy crew, happy owner! That's why we have made the crew cabins on the Y9 extra-large, endowed them with plenty of well thought-out storage space and integrated a crew lounge. The captain's cabin can also be converted into a saloon during the day. True to the philosophy of "Bumblebee Spaces" we are convinced that rooms do not have to have a single, predefined purpose.
In contrast to the Y8, the Y9 has its own owner's suite, which consists of a private salon, a dressing room, a bedroom and a bathroom with two basins, a separate shower and a separate toilet. The Y9 offers maximum privacy which the owner can enjoy with family or close friends.
The interior of the first Y9 is being drawn by Norm Architects and Design Unlimited - two interior designers with whom we have a long history. The Y7, designed by Norm Architects, has just won a valuable Design Award from style bible Wallpaper magazine.
Of course, every customer can also bring their own designer into the project.
We would be delighted to send you additional material about our innovative yachts wherever you are based.
