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.

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
