ABOUT Y YACHTS
The creation of YYachts is one of many success stories of its founder Michael Schmidt. The story began when Schmidt, himself a passionate regatta sailor and boatbuilder, was looking for a private sailing yacht.
If you are unfamiliar with Michael Schmidt, he is responsible for building the first carbon race yachts and brought Admiral’s Cuppers like “Pinta” and “Container” to the water.
With the key characteristics; fast and therefore light in mind he found a team who shared his same passion. Lorenzo Argento of Brenta Design for the construction and Sir David Chipperfield, for interior and design, and in 2014 YYachts was born.
Y Yachts are now known for building exclusively from carbon composite in Greifswald/Germany in a modern, completely newly built production facility, manufacturing sailing yachts up to a length of 33 metres. The shipyard’s automated painting shed makes it possible to paint yachts in almost any colour, or to temper yachts made of prepreg at up to 90 degrees Celsius.
All YYachts models are united by Michael Schmidt’s motto: “Sailing fun needs a yacht reduced to her bare essentials without sacrificing comfort”.

“I love the speed, the stability and, being an accountant, the fuel economy. I have zipped all over Pittwater at 30 knots sipping only 80 litres an hour. Show me another 37 ft boat that gets anywhere near that!!!
I have always loved the styling on the Axopar range, but it really was the new hull design on the 37 revolution that had me push the buy button,” said Andrew.
Previously owning a Greenline 40 Hybrid for 8 years the Flemings were looking to downsize and found the perfect fit, the Axopar 28 Cabin.
Jon and Anne are already in love with their Axopar, it fulfils all their needs with the enclosed helm and how quiet and peaceful it is with the doors closed and retractable roof open. Jon talked about how well it rode at 25knots and the ease of steering with the 300hp Mercury Outboard.
Dave owned his 28 T-Top for only 6 short months before upgrading to a 37 Sun Top and now with a 28 Cabin, so I think it is safe to say he has a bit of experience with Axopars. We thought he would be the perfect person to talk to about the various models, likes, dislikes and the adventures they have taken him on.
Georgie found the Axopar 28′ despite its length a well designed boat that could easily be skippered single-handedly, claiming “The Axopar is so easy to handle I can head out at any time in any condition.” Georgie refers to her Axopar as a “Sexy sports car. A convertible with opening doors and roof which allow full control of the amount of sun and wind one experiences.”
“We LOVE our boat, it’s been one of the best things that’s happened to us. With twin 300hp and antifoul we have comfortably gotten to 42kts.
We have communication with Eyachts and Brendon here in WA so we know if we ever needed anything we will be looked after, we really love our boat.”-Jasmyn.
Richard surf skiing owner – “The boat itself just offers so much versatility, it’s a great dayboat it’s a great family boat, we get to use 37ft not 7 ft, it’s versatility is what sold me and to do something like this is pretty unique and they’re a great offshore boat too so that’s important.”
Axopar 28 owner Ian was extremely impressed by the Eyachts team and how helpful everyone was. “Well done Axopar and the eYachts team!”
“This boat is a winner for a (ok retired!) couple like us who want to have confidence in the manufacturer and dealer.”
Mark Richards is known for wanting to go really fast. Having spent 22 years skippering Wild Oats and leading it to many 9 Sydney to Hobart wins, Ricko has supercharged his Axopar 24. “We hit 60 kts within 5 seconds of what felt like a Boeing 747 take off the team couldn’t stop smiling”.
Graeme – “The ride quality and finish were exceptional”. The 24 was his choice of Axopar due to greater ease of beach anchoring at Rottnest.
“I have had a number of sensational boating days. Nothing beats a two hour surf at Rottnest and then picking up 16 crays on the way home.”
Ian- “We remain very impressed with the stability and smoothness of the boat’s handling. Including tight turns in very choppy conditions.”
Julianne- “It is something of a magic carpet in terms of its stability and speed. The all-round visibility is sensational from within the very comfortable cabin”.
“I don’t have to worry about the weather or conditions, I can take the Axopar out whenever I want… As the other boats slow down for the rough waves and wind, I’m able to maintain cruising at 30kts.”
Hayden, Harry and Rosie pictured on handover day. They did a trip down the coast and stopped for a spot of whale watching. Harry said “I was extremely impressed with the way the boat handled on the trip offshore”.

If you know Sydney Heads you would know that this area is known for having turbulent seas. Combine a 1.5-2 metre southerly swell with a 30kt westerly and you have the type of mess that will really put this 22 ft dayboat to the test!
In this in-depth walkthrough, Joe talks through some of the significant changes that Axopar have made since the prior first-generation model.
