A HOME FOR RESEARCHERS
Research vessels are scarce and exploring oceans is expensive. As a solution, YYachts developed the 22-meter research yacht YX PURE.
The "Eugen Seibold", as the research yacht is called after a German marine researcher and supports scientists among others in researching climate change. Its main task is to carry out long-term observations in certain marine regions with a comparatively low budget.
|DRAFT (FIXED KEEL)||3.25 m|
|DISPLACEMENT (LIGHT SHIP)||38.50 t|

|JIB 105%||approx. 142 m2|
|ENGINE||Nanni 23O OHP|
|FUEL TANK||approx. 2.000 L|
|FRESHWATER TANK||approx. 1.000 L|
|NAVAL ARCHITECTS||Interior and Exterior Design: Design Unlimited, Lorenzo Argento Yacht Design|
Unlike steel ships, it does not pollute the plastic to be sampled as a plastic yacht, for example due to rust.
The hull is mostly made of classic fiberglass, with carbon fiber reinforcements. Her elegant line comes from the pen of Lorenzo Argento. Nevertheless, the requirements for the "Eugen Seibold" are very different than a private yacht. The research sailor weighs a maximum of 44 tons, fully loaded with equipment and due to the oversized hull.
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.
An advantage that diesel-powered research vessels do not have systemically. Perhaps the YX PURE is the greenest research vessel in the world: the two-winged propeller allows the batteries to be recharged under sail even at hull speed
A SAILING YACHT FOR SEA PROTECTORS
The sail operation is hydraulic, as well as the pivoting of the A-frame on the aft deck. Through it nets and water samples can be obtained from up to 2500 meters depth. The samples are packaged below deck and deep-frozen. In addition to a 170-hp six-cylinder diesel, a 288-volt generator and two electric drive motors with lithium iron phosphate batteries were also installed.
EXPLORE THE WORLD AND FEEL LIKE HOME
The interior is user-oriented and practical. Important features are the second, aft exit to the aft deck as well as the deckhouse. Eight berths are offered by the YX PURE, in addition to some laboratory space.
The "Eugen Seibold" was financed by the Swiss Werner Siemens Foundation, which specializes in research funding. The sponsor is the German Max Planck Institute.
