One size. Four yachts. 80 feet luxury carbon.

YYachts was established with the delivery of the first Y8, thus making it our founding model. Famous designers such as Luca Brenta, Sir David Chipperfield, Lorenzo Argento, and Mark Tucker have designed a Y8. With this luxury carbon yacht, the choice is yours. The Y8 is available in a DC version with a longer aft section and a safe center cockpit or with a raised saloon in the SRD or SRD+ versions. Compared to the Y7, all four yachts offer noticeably more space to further customize your luxury yacht. One size. Four yachts. 80 feet luxury carbon.

Space for your ideas

Your Y8. Your Layout.

There are numerous options for dividing the Y8 below deck. With the available layouts the Y8 can flexibly adapt to your requirements, with the option to divide the below deck front and rear living areas. With this division implemented, the crews’ cabins, the navigation station, and the galley of yacht are then housed in the stern. This is the ideal layout to maximum privacy and remain undisturbed by the crew. With two cockpit solutions, variable headroom, and an interior that can be fully adapted to the customer, the Y8 is a sailing yacht that is as individual as its future owner.
