YYachts shipyard, overlooking the Baltic Sea, is currently in full operation. Alongside the Tripp-90 project of the Custom Division, Y7’s constructions number 10 and 11 are located in the outfitting department. Hull number 10 will leave the yard this summer.
The German yard recently presented Celeste: this latest delivery is a Y7, which sailed to Palma de Mallorca immediately after launch. She will shortly sail around the Balearic Islands. Its interior is inspired by the first Y7, Bella: the impression is that of a quiet and luxurious refuge, with a soft and minimalist style.
With a displacement of only 29 tons, Y7 has almost 300sqm upwind sail area and a generous 700sqm downwind sail area, which makes it move even in light winds.
The Y7 was created for long family holidays, being able to sail alone or with a very small crew to assist the owner.
Because of the closed boundaries, YYachts had to open new horizons. Instead of being delivered to the shipyard on a flatbed trailer, the hull of the new Tripp 90 was delivered on a cargo ship that left from Szczecin in Poland and arrived in Greifswald.
The reason for this was the restrictions on cross-border traffic to Poland and the current road closures, which made sea transport the only option.
In the meantime, the Tripp 90 is being fully equipped and should be ready by the end of the year. The yacht is under construction on behalf of an American client who wants to use the yacht for both racing and cruising around the world.
