    Carrswood Yachts are delighted to offer you a truly unique opportunity to purchase an all NEW 70ft Y7 performance cruising yacht from the highly reputed Y Yachts shipyard in North Germany. Due to a change of our clients circumstances this beautiful all carbon sloop (designed by the acclaimed Tripp Design Naval Architects) is now offered for sale in advance of the yachts completion and handover. This Y7 will be completed and ready for you from January 2025. Not only will you bypass the shipyards current waiting list but you benefit from previous lower pricing and have a yacht finished to the highest specification with the most desirable optional extras available!


    General description:

    The Y7 is Y Yachts best selling model of this contemporary range of performance carbon constructed superyachts (70-100ft). Y Yachts are a luxury technologically advanced brand which was founded by the highly respected Michael Schmidt (formerly founder and owner of Hanse yachts, Germany).

     This flush decked sleek hull is powered by an Axxon high modulus carbon mast, carbon furling boom, high performance Doyle sails and a performance Weldox keel. It is no wonder this fast cruising yacht targets the sailing enthusiast who prefers no compromise performance combined with the very best equipment yet simplicity with luxury. Despite being 22m (70ft) in length and with a 212 SqM square top mainsail and 296 SqM Code Zero, the Y7 is very much conceived to be simply operated by the owners. All control lines lead aft to the twin helm stations where the helm can simply sail the yacht by themselves thanks to push button Harken winches. Wide open deck spaces are plentiful on the Y7 and her large lounging cockpit is ideal for al-fresco dining or just for hanging out under the boom bimini. For the owner who would appreciates crewed help onboard there is a dedicated crew cabin with its own private aft deck access. Michael Schmidt is a firm believer in simplicity and ‘no-fuss’ systems that work. As a consequence the Y7’s deck design and sailing systems could not be easier to operate.

    Below decks the stylised open plan accommodation is beautifully fitted out with Natural Oak furniture, Oak sole boards and bulkheads. Where possible all furniture and bulkheads are of lightweight foam composite construction. Its no wonder at 30t (lightship) she is fast and rewarding to sail. This Y7 has the most popular three cabin layout plus twin crew cabin. Forward of the large full beam saloon is a U shaped galley to starboard (fully equipped with professional Miele equipment & Grohe Blue Tap) and to port an owners desk/mini office. Forward of the mast is the forward facing master cabin with central king sized bed and ensuite bathroom. Aft of the saloon is the Navigation station with desk and all ships central controls. Either side of the companionway are two twin berthed guest cabins – the starboard cabin having an infill option to create a large double bed. Each aft guest cabin has its own bathroom with shower, basin and electric WC.


    There are two large storage lockers onboard. Most impressive of all is the aft deck lazarette which has a 3.2 x 1.8m hydraulic opening deck hatch. This full beam locker is entirely separate from the transom and therefore remains completely dry. This locker will store a 3-4m dinghy (partially deflated), cockpit cushions, fenders, downwind sails, tools, shore power cables and deck furniture etc. The dinghy can be lifted from the lazarette by a dedicated carbon pole lift point which is stored in the end of the boom The other large storage locker is forward at the bow - just behind the dedicated anchor and chain locker.

    Uniquely available for sale, this Y7 is in build and available 12 months earlier than if you were to order today. She has an exceptional specification and can be yours for Spring 2025.
