YYachts’ Magnificent Duo: Y9 Prevail and Bella Shine as ISS Design Awards Finalists

YYachts Design Excellence and Innovation to be Celebrated on the Global Stage

The world of superyachts is synonymous with luxury, precision, and innovative design. Pushing the boundaries of excellence, YYachts has once again garnered international recognition with two of its stunning creations, the 90-foot Y9 Bella and Y9 Prevail, being shortlisted as finalists for the prestigious International Superyacht Society (ISS) Design Awards in the ‘Best in Sail’ category for yachts under 500GT.

Bella and Prevail have secured two out of the five coveted finalist spots, showcasing YYachts’ exceptional design and craftsmanship. This achievement is particularly notable as Carbon Yachts, the exclusive distributor for YYachts in the Asia Pacific region, celebrates the recognition of these remarkable vessels on a global stage.

Y9 Bella, a testament to YYachts’ commitment to excellence, has previously won the “Outstanding Exterior Design Sailing Yachts” category at BOAT International’s Design & Innovation Awards. This accolade underlines the yacht’s innovative design and exceptional aesthetics, setting it apart as a true masterpiece on water.

On the other hand, Y9 Prevail, a Y9 Custom designed by the renowned naval architect Bill Tripp, stands as a paragon of bespoke design and engineering. Tripp, responsible for designing both the Y9 and the 70-foot Y7 models, has intricately woven his expertise and vision into Prevail, creating a yacht that is not just a mode of luxury transportation, but an experience in itself.
