Michael Schmidt Yachtbau presents the Y7 Tripp 70, designed by the American yacht designer Bill Tripp.

The Y7 Tripp 70 is a 22m lightweight sailing yacht made of carbon with a modern and clean design. Like many modern and fast sailing yachts, the Y7 has a wide stern, so the yacht will be equipped with a twin rudder. One disadvantage of twin rudders could be a bad maneuverability in marinas but a twin-engine configuration with two 75 hp Volvo Penta engines will compensate that and streams the rudder blades directly. One of the engines serves also as a generator but a further generator is also available as an option.

The yard has the principle

“Keep it simple”

that a family can sail the yacht by themselves or with a small crew. So the yacht has a self-tacking jib. The draft of the yacht with the fixed keel 3.30 meters. But you can order the yacht with a lifting keel to reduce the draft to 1.90 meters. In the sailing mode, the keel bomb hangs in 3.60 meters. There is also a performance keel with a lower center of gravity.


The Y7 Tripp 70 has a basic layout and four layout options. Owners’ cabin with en-suite bathroom is always in the forward area, crew cabin next to the tender garage at the aft. Dining and living area with coffee table amidships. The interior is made of lightweight materials with veneer.
