Nijkerk, THE NETHERLANDS. When it comes to the superyacht industry, there is no event quite like the Monaco Yacht Show. A meeting place for clients, shipyards, designers, suppliers and everyone in between, its energy is inspiring and it is always a hub of news, launches, collaborations and announcements. With 125 yachts on display and attendance higher than it has ever been at 36,400 people, the 27th edition of the Monaco Yacht Show was no different and it was an especially exciting one for Lynx Yachts.
This year we unveiled the brand new Adventure 32 model at our stand. The first in the Adventure Series, our team created this 32.3m yacht as a response to the growing popularity of long-range displacement hull vessels. The concept was really well-received by potential buyers and the wider industry. Clients increasingly want to explore the world and embark on new experiences, and with its cruising range of 2,000nm at 11knots, external stowage space for tenders and excellent balance of sea-worthy and luxury features, the Adventure 32 really lives up to its name. Environmental and efficiency issues within the industry were also important topics of discussion at this year’s show, and both are always key considerations for us at Lynx. The Adventure 32 will not exceed 200 gross tonnes, something that will positively impact on both the management costs and environment.
Visitors to our Lynx stand were also able to see scale models of the shipyard’s celebrated YXT series. This groundbreaking range received significant interest from not just potential clients, but also naval architects, engineers and captains within the industry who were excited by the limitless potential of the YXT platform. Originally conceived as a sophisticated support vessel to accompany the mothership, supplying additional storage and transport large tenders and toys, the YXT – Yacht x Tender – is also a reliable and rugged yacht in its own right. One of the scale models on display represented the YXT 24, the second of which was sold to an American client earlier this year and is expected to be delivered in the summer of 2018, ready to be displayed at the Monaco Yacht Show 2018.
This was certainly another inspiring, busy and successful Monaco Yacht Show for us at Lynx Yachts. Thank you to everyone who came and visited the stand, met with our team and helped make it such a strong event. The year ahead is going to be an exciting one for the shipyard and we look forward to sharing even more news in the coming months.
