This design is a genuine high performance cruising cat that features high tech construction, high performance rig design and minimalist yet luxurious accommodation. Underlining these base criteria’s is the attention to detail and style. The quality standard for this design is very high and complete in all areas of its construction, fit out and finishes. The Y55 is designed to comply with ABS high-speed vessel classification and to comply with CE requirements.

The client has several options to choose from regarding the propulsion of the yacht. We do have great experience in hybrid constructions. Even a 100% green yacht fully run on regeneration during sailing loading the batteries is possible. A hybrid version with saildrives and electro engines can be very cost effective. Let it be clear that all versions are severely tested.
