One size. Four yachts. 80 foot luxury carbon.

New Y8 with more performance and more volume

The YYachts success story began with the 80 foot yacht Y8. After "Cool Breeze", the first YYacht ever, and further individual Y8 follow-up orders, YYachts now developed a modified 80 feet platform for a Swiss customer. For the new Y8, the YYachts design and development team based in Palma de Mallorca cooperated with Surge Projects. The Mallorcan design studio around Javier Jaudenes has a "knack" for a timelessly elegant design, but also has great experience in designing fast yachts. Surge designs have won many trophies, and the studio has developed such interesting yachts as "Win Win" or the Café Racer.

In contrast to the previous Y8, the new model has a wider stern, so in combination with the mast set further back, Javier Jaudenes predicts high speed potential for his design: "The Jib will provide a lot of speed. A lot of R&D results from previous projects have gone into the Y8. It is an essence of our experience and will be fast, but at the same time very safe under any conditions. The fact that YYachts builds from carbon naturally suits our philosophy." Jaudenes: "The new Y8 is a lot of fun. I would describe her as a good-mood yacht."

Of course, the new Y8 also offers YYachts' usual innovative standard - such as the transverse garage in the stern, the self-tacking jib, the separate crew access in the cockpit or the flat deckhouse, whose optimally placed windows prevent the yacht from heating up too much.

Incidentally, the interior volume of the yacht is 20 percent larger than that of its predecessor. This results in many different layout options: The owner's suite including a separate saloon can be located either in the bow or in the stern with direct access to the cockpit, the galley can be installed open or closed, and three or four cabins can be fitted. By moving the engine room below the saloon floor, the yacht gets a lower centre of gravity and thus a better balance, which results in additional speed.

Incidentally, thanks to the slightly raised saloon floor, owners and guests can enjoy an unobstructed view of the sea from the saloon.

Easy handling

On this 80 foot yacht all halyards, sheets, and trim controls run concealed to the steering positions, allowing the helmsman to comfortably operate the Y8 and sail the yacht with a very small crew.

Space for your ideas

80 Foot Carbon Yacht - 360° View


There are numerous options for a layout of a Y8 below deck. With the available options the Y8 can flexibly adapt to your requirements, with the possibility to divide the front and rear living areas. With this division implemented, the crews’ cabins, the navigation station, and the galley of the yacht are then located in the stern. This is the ideal layout to maximize privacy and remains undisturbed by the crew. With two cockpit solutions, variable headroom, and an interior that can be fully adapted to the customer, Y8 is a sailing yacht which is as individual as its future owner. A large dinghy garage with a transversal storage of the tender is a feature nearly all YYachts share so far. With state-of-the-art technology, the yacht can be handled even by a couple or with very small crew. The Y8 is one of the most customizable yachts in the 25 metre range providing speed, design, comfort and ease to use.
