The Lynx YXT 20 is a very small yacht support vessel aka Yacht-X-Tender

This support vessel features a deck space of 45 sqm to carry a choice of larger tenders and watersport toys for the main yacht. The boat has two cranes. One with a lifting capacity of 1.7 tons and a 360° slew on the main deck, the other one with a capacity of 0.5 tons that is also the gangway.

A crew of four in two single-bed cabins with bathrooms will be aboard to service the shadow boat and the tenders. The boat is equipped with a crew mess, galley, and laundry. The interior was designed by Franck Darnet.

YXT 20 is powered by two Cummins diesel engines with 715 HP each. The operating range is about 900 nautical miles.

The YXT range is available from 20 – 40 meters. The first unit of the 20m edition was launched in summer 2016.

Slim Bouricha – Lynx Yachts President – comments:

“The main reason for owning a shadow vessel is really to unleash the potential of the main yacht and enhance considerably the yachting experience. Owners and charterers are more and more demanding and there are so many new desired toys and tenders every year. Once we reach a certain size, it does not make sense to upsize anymore and give out prime real estate space. The YXTconcept will deliver more than the bigger yacht can, at a starting price just below 2M€. As for the operating expenses, a YXT will be revealed to be considerably less expensive as well. The variations are endless, whether we are carrying nautical tenders or cars, buggies or motorcycles … even extra accommodation. We have also received many inquiries from people who want to use the YXT as their main yacht, and our team is very busy on the drawing board to develop the perfect YXT for each one of these potential owners. Our YXT series has been designed so that it is a platform with enough flexibility to respond to a large range or requirements”
