CUSTOM DIVISION

We’ll realise your vision.

One of our most demanding projects to date was the build of “Eugen Seibold”, a deeply innovative sailing vessel for the research of the environment. 

We received this order from the Swiss Werner Siemens Foundation, and the new boat was delivered in autumn 2018. Since than she has been used by scientists from all over the world for climate and ocean research, managed by the renowned MAX PLANCK Institute.

Many thanks to Professor Gerald Haug, now President of LEOPOLDINA (German National Academy of Sciences), Director of the Max Planck Institute and Professor at ETH Zurich, for navigating this project through many obstacles into today’s safe waters. We also thank the Werner Siemens Foundation for the trust they put in us with this build.

The YX Pure "Eugen Seibold" can go up to nine hours emission-free, so it is able to take unpolluted air samples from the atmosphere.

Thanks to an advanced hybrid diesel-electric drive and a large battery bank. Perhaps the YX PURE is the greenest research vessel in the world. Its two-bladed propeller allows the batteries to be recharged under sail even at hull speed.

UNLIKE STEEL-hulled boats, IT DOES NOT POLLUTE seawater samples with rust.  

The hull is mostly made of classic glass fibre, with carbon fibre reinforcementsHer elegant lines come from the pen of Lorenzo Argento. Nevertheless, the requirements for the "Eugen Seibold" are very different to those of a private yacht. Due to an oversized hull, the research sailer weighs a maximum of 44 tonnes fully loaded with equipment.

YX Pure - A HOME FOR RESEARCHERS

RESEARCH VESSELS ARE few AND EXPLORING OCEANS IS EXPENSIVE. AS A SOLUTION, YYACHTS DEVELOPED THE 22-metre RESEARCH YACHT YX PURE. 

The "Eugen Seibold" is named after a German marine researcher, and supports scientists and others in researching climate change. Its main task is to carry out long-term observations in certain marine regions with a comparatively low budget.

YX - Discover the ocean

 

In the development of the YX, we are constantly incorporating the experience of the YX PURE "Eugen Seibold", which is currently on a worldwide research expedition. 

This gives you the assurance that there will be no surprises from the boat itself on your expeditions. We laminate the hull soundly with glass fibre and epoxy resin to absorb rough treatment, as well as Kevlar and carbon reinforcements in the bow area. In the interests of safety, the YX has a heavier lay-up than our other models.

All deck areas have generous access and a high fixed railing instead of guardwires. Helm the YX from behind the protection of the coachroof, or from the comfort of the deck-level saloon. A powerful engine and huge tank capacity for a yacht of this size leaves no doubt that the YX should sail far from marinas.
