An international jury chose YYachts for its innovative and consistent design efforts and has honoured the company with the 2022 Design Innovation Award.

The Design Innovation Award was launched in 2020 by the Italian Boating Industry Association and I Saloni Nautici to give credit to the innovation and excellence of exhibitors and their latest products.

The interior design of the yacht is the result of a cooperation between YYachts’ in-house design team and the owners of the boat, two highly accomplished designers.

“Our iconic designs combined with the custom requirements of our clients result in bespoke performance boats that are highly innovative and beautiful,” said Dirk Zademack, Managing Partner of YYachts.

“This is one of the hallmarks of our company and we are pleased that the jury has honoured our efforts.”


In the owners’ words, “We love sailing this boat and it feels like our second home.

“The generous, clean deck and the very large saloon create a superb environment for our family and friends to enjoy fast and comfortable sailing.”

Francesca Modica, Chief Designer at YYachts, adds, “It was a pleasure to work together with the owners.

“It was a fruitful exchange of ideas and efforts with the common goal to create a special and sophisticated boat.”

YYachts is an innovative German shipyard that builds carbon sailing yachts between 70 and 100 feet in length and is one of the world’s leading addresses in this segment.

The YYachts credo is to reduce a yacht to her essentials in order to offer customers a reliable, safe and pure sailing experience. At the same time, the yachts are built as sustainable as possible.
