Y YACHTS Y8

ONE SIZE. FOUR YACHTS. 80 FOOT LUXURY CARBON.

An iconic, light and easy to sail 80ft yacht. 

The Y8 will provide you and your family a carefree experience. 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 short-handed. 

Due to the modular construction, the layout can be adapted to the wishes of the owner. If desired, the front and rear living areas can be divided below deck. The number of guest cabins is variable, with up to four possibilities.

The Y8 was the first and founding model of YYachts. With origins from designers like Luca Brenta and David Chipperfield who gave her an unforgettable taste and style and interior styling from Design Unlimited. The exterior design evolved from the drawing board of Lorenzo Argento with a fresh asymmetric cockpit and several luxury features were integrated. 

Now a different sail plan is being developed, the foresail enlarged and the mast placed further aft. The new Y8 now also has a wider stern and thus more volume. Combined with different technical installations, this opened up completely new possibilities for another new interior design developed in-house, while the construction is provided by the ISS Design and World Superyacht Design Awards-winning Surge Projects studio.
