Second YXT 24 support vessel takes shape at Lynx Yachts

Second YXT 24 support vessel takes shape at Lynx Yachts

Dutch yard Lynx Yachts has released the first in-build photos of the second hull in its YXT 24 series of superyacht support vessels.

Sold back in May to an American client with a passion for watersports, this 26.3 metre aluminium vessel will be delivered next summer and go on display at the 2018 Monaco Yacht Show.

As these new images reveal, the steel hull and aluminium superstructure are largely complete. The yard adds that the owner has visited the Nijerk facility and is pleased with the progress made so far.

Speaking earlier this year, Filippo Rossi, sales and marketing manager at Lynx Yachts, said: "It has been a pleasure to work with this client. His passion for yachting and for 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.”

Accommodation on the YXT 24 is for four guests and four crewmembers, and the yard has teamed up with Darnet Design to create the interiors for this latest version.

Key features include a flexible 75 square metre deck, ideal for carrying tenders and superyacht water toys. On the second YXT 24, this space will be partly used for carrying the owner’s Land Rover Defender, allowing him to explore on land as well as by sea.

Power comes from a pair of Caterpillar C18 ACERT engines for a top speed of 16 knots and a maximum cruising range of 1,250 nautical miles at 14 knots.

Other projects currently being developed at the Nijerk-based yard include the Lynx Adventure series of compact explorer yachts, with the first model, the Adventure 32, recently revealed. Meanwhile, 32 metre and 36 metre versions of the YXT support vessel series are under proposal.
