Lynx Yachts YXT 24 Evolution Support Vessel Roe Shadow Delivered

8 July 2020 • Written by Miranda Blazeby

The second hull in Lynx Yachts YXT 24 Evolution support vessel series Roe Shadow has been delivered.

It comes after the fully-custom 27.3 metre motor yacht was launched during a small ceremony in March this year. Sold in June 2018, Roe Shadow features exterior design penned by Bernd Wheel Design. The interior is styled by Darnet Design while engineering comes courtesy of Diana Yacht Design.

The owner already has a larger yacht and chose to build a Lynx 24 Evolution to accompany the mothership and carry a plethora of toys. As a passionate watersports enthusiast who enjoys kite-surfing, scuba diving and catamarans and sailboats, the owner chose Lynx to transport these toys, extra equipment and also offer additional accommodation for guests.

The 75 square metre main deck houses a 9.8 metre Pascoe beach lander, two Sea Doos, and a knuckle boom crane with a load capacity of 3.930 tonnes.

The lower deck has a beach club that offers direct access to this platform for easy access to the sea for either diving or kite-surfing activities. There's also a 100-inch outdoor screen for movie nights or sporting events.

With a seven metre beam, Roe Shadow features two large cabins amidships, one for storage of ports equipment, while the other is equipped for washing sports gear and accessories. There are two cabins forward for crew, a large crew mess, three refrigerators, three freezers, three washing machines and three dryers to maximiseher duties as a support vessel.
