22m crossover explorer sailing Yx7 by Michael Schmidt Yachtbau and Design Unlimited with naval architecture by Lorenzo Argento Yacht Design.

The Yx7 bribes with her very characteristic deckhouse that comes with a strong workboat optic and was developed for people who want to sail around the world including the Arctic.

Interior

Although the deckhouse conceals a clear view over the deck, it has other advantages: Guests can enjoy a 360-degree view from the seating area and the captain has an overview while sitting at the navigation desk. Natural light comes through a skylight in the middle (on both sides are solar panels) and the side windows that can be lowered. Also, the side windows of the cockpit can be lowered.

The owners' suite - bright or brighter?

The Yx7 has a base price of EUR 2,380,000 and a maximum price of EUR 3,104,970 without VAT and special requests. The price with my personal requirements adds up at EUR 3.006.180. Details below.
