Lightweight, extremely stable, emission-free: these are the key features of the new YTender. The multihull RIB is an innovative tender for owners of large sailing yachts.
For many years, YYachts has been regarded as an extremely innovative address when it comes to designing and building sailing yachts between 70 and 100 feet. YYachts builds from carbon and thus light, because this allows the sails to be set even in light winds.
One problem with the equipment, however, was often the tenders. Since YYachts has arranged the tender garage transversely in the stern, it can accommodate relatively large tenders. However, the size and weight of the tenders then came at the expense of performance.
The solution to this is now available. It is called the YTender and was conceived by YYachts' design and engineering team.
The YTender is built from carbon composite, is designed to meet the needs of sailors and weighs only 170 kilograms at a length of 3.65 metres and 230 kilograms at a length of 4.35 metres. A built-in compressor can automatically fill or empty the hoses during craning - thus minimising the stowage dimensions. Malzahn: "An incredibly innovative solution. It allows us to offer a tender with maximum size for six people."
Designed as a catamaran, the YTender not only offers a veritable interior, but its hydrodynamics also make it very efficient underway. It is available with electric drives as well as with conventional outboards in the stern. Above all, however, it is stable in the water; when boarding, it does not tip over on its side and thus conveys a very good feeling of safety.
Its layout is flexible, as is the equipment and decoration. The YTender can be adapted to the look of any yacht.
The YTender is built and sold by Yachtwerft Hamburg. Johannes Malzahn, Managing Partner of Yachtwerft Hamburg, says: "Producing the tenders for YYachts is a great opportunity and honour for us. The concept developed by YYachts will be implemented by us with the very highest quality - as is customary in large yachting."
