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

One size. Four Yachts. 80 Foot Luxury Carbon
The Y8 provides you with space, light, luxury, style, and performance, creating the most unforgettable on-water experiences for family, friends, and guests. In keeping with the YYachts philosophy of simplicity and effortless handling, all halyards, sheets, and trim controls run concealed to the steering positions, allowing the helmsman to comfortably and confidently operate and sail the Y8 short-handed.
The format, layout and design of the Y8 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 also 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 with interior styling from Design Unlimited. The exterior design evolved from the drawing board of Lorenzo Argento with a new asymmetric cockpit and groundbreaking new luxury features.
A different sail plan is now in development, 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 and advanced technical installations, completely new possibilities for the interior living concept have been defined. To complement the state of the art design, construction is provided by the ISS Design and World Superyacht Design Awards-winning Surge Projects studio.
