New Y8 World premiere

World premiere of the new Y8 at Palma International Boat Show

We are proud to announce the world premiere of the new Y8, a groundbreaking model from YYachts, at the upcoming Palma International Boat Show. This isn’t just an addition to our collection; it’s a pioneering milestone in yacht design.

The creation of the Y8 is a collaborative blend, featuring a team of designers: a celebrated naval architect from Spain, a top product designer, and a Danish interior designer, working alongside our in-house experts. Their combined efforts have shaped the Y8 into a perfect example of style and practicality.

Central to the Y8’s design is YYachts’ commitment to maintaining and reducing weight, focusing on the essentials without compromising on elegance or functionality. The first hull of this new model redefines the concepts of luxury and simplicity.


The interior of the Y8 is a realm of spaciousness and luxurious, rivaling salons found on 90-foot yachts, and is influenced by the furniture industry’s design principles, featuring straight walls, and customizable, luxurious furnishings.

Guiding this grand interior is David Thulstrup, an acclaimed architect and designer known for his blend of Scandinavian elegance and contemporary style.

Furthermore, at Y Yachts, we leverage the extensive experience of our team, each member possessing a long history in yacht construction. This depth of knowledge is vital to our design and development processes, resulting in yachts that are not just aesthetically pleasing but also technologically advanced and reliable.

Our approach is deeply informed by the feedback from our esteemed clients. With a community of over 40 YYachts owners, we diligently incorporate their preferences and insights into our new models. This synergy between our team’s expertise and our clients’ perspectives continually drives innovation in our yacht designs.

Please mark your calendars for the worldwide debut of the new Y8 at the Palma International Boat Show, from April 25th to April 28th.
