– Trail launch this June, delivery to client at the end of July
– Public presentation during the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show 2016
Following up on the March press release announcing the construction of the YXT 20 support vessel, Yacht X Tender, a division of Lynx Yachts, is pleased to announce that construction of the first unit of 20 meter vessel is proceeding perfectly according to schedule. The support vessel, built on-spec in Holland like all YXT vessels, is presently in the painting phase, having completed all the system and power plant installations. Differing from the 24 meter unit delivered in 2014 and presented to the public, during the MYSof the same year, with it’s grey livery, the YXT 20 Support Vessel has a white livery, giving her a fresher and more marine aspect. This color scheme also emphasizes the gamma’s production philosophy: created for carrying extra toys and gadgets, the vessel’s use is closer to the fun and leisure aspects of seagoing. A further modification is the addition of a stern mounted gangway crane, allowing the transom mounted beach area to be used to carry tenders and jet skis. The stairs and the first four metersof deck are completed in teak, underlining the yachting style of the YXT 20. The trial launch of the YXT 20 is planned for the middle of June, with routine sea trails immediately following. Two weeks after completion of the trails, the yacht will be delivered for use in the Mediterranean, primarily in Southern France. Public debut will be at the Monaco Boat Show, September 28th to October 1st, 2016, with the yacht on display on the quay hosting the luxury maxi tenders. Built in steel, the YXT 20 support vessel has a spacious 45 square meter deck and additional toys requested by the owner of the mother ship. Compared to the 24 meter model, the YXT 20 has a more traditional bow and the stern beach club is fixed not folding. The interior is designed by Frank Darnet Design. Layout The most compact member of the YXT “shadow boat fleet” has a four person crew quarters with two twin cabins with baths, galley, storage and laundry rooms, plus one large storage boxe with hatches that give onto the main deck that can also be used for refrigerators, wine cellars, or when necessary, as extra berths (depending on the final destination of the yacht).
