Lynx Yachts launches first YXT 24 Evolution support vessel
by Miranda Blazeby
Dutch yard Lynx Yachts has launched the first hull in its YXT 24 Evolution series at its Nijkerk facility in the Netherlands.
The 24 metre superyacht support vessel is the fourth yacht to be built by the company and features a steel hull and superstructure.
The custom-built yacht has been built for a “passionate American owner” with a “quest for action and adventure at sea.”
With 75 square metres of deck space, the YXT 24 Evolution has plenty of room for tenders and toys, including a car garage for the owner’s Land Rover Defender.
Lynx sales and marking manager Filippo Rossi said: “It has been a pleasure to work with this client. His passion for yachting and the sea is infectious. He knows exactly how he wants to use his YXT and this has helped us to adapt the vessel for him.”
Other features include a spa, gym and fitness area, laundry and helipad. Accommodation is for four crew and a maximum of three guests in a double cabin with a Pullman bed.
It will be powered by a pair of 850hp C12.9 Caterpillar diesel engines for a top speed of 13 knots.
