Lynx Yachts announced the sale of another yacht in its YXT series, the 27.3-metre YXT 24 Evolution.
The motor yacht is the product of the joint efforts of Bernd Weel Design, which took care of the overall design, interior designers at Darnet Design, and engineers of Diana Yacht Design.
The YXT 24 Evolution was commissioned by an owner who already owns a motor yacht, and it is due for delivery at the end of 2019. “The client is really interested in the YXT 24 because his mothership doesn’t have the capability to carry all the toys he would like to have,” explained Filippo Rossi, sales and marketing manager at Lynx Yachts.
The YXT series is an attractive alternative option to refitting or selling a yacht in favour of purchasing a larger vessel. “We are engaging with a number of clients who are aware of the benefit of shadow vessels at this scale – they know exactly what they want.”
The YXT 24 Evolution, with its 7.1-metre beam, will allow for plenty of water sports equipment onboard, including kite surfing and scuba diving kit, a sailing boat and catamaran. This vessel will also feature a knuckle-boom crane to easily launch and retrieve the latter of the toys, which are stowed on the beach platform.
“[The owner is] a real gentleman, passionate about the sea and a true water sport lover,” added Filippo Rossi. “All the solutions for this yacht have been studied with him and his team and I am sure, once delivered, this shadow vessel will enormously increase the pleasure at sea for him and his guests.”
The additional space will also allow for increased accommodation capabilities: two additional guests in a double suite and two double cabins for crew. The interior layout includes a laundry room and a pantry, with direct access provided to the beach club on the lower deck.
The YXT 24 Evolution will be the second of its kind from the series and includes a number of custom touches such as installing MAN engines, the same as those in the owner’s mothership, minimising the need for additional maintenance and servicing teams.
