With the exterior designed by Bernd Weel, the naval architecture by Diana Yacht Design and the interior design by Darnet Design, the YXT 24 Evolution has been built with ample storage space for equipment, tenders and toys. She features a spacious lazarette, accessible from the swim platform, and 75-square-metres of deck space. The owner’s personal Land Rover Defender will also be stored onboard enabling him to explore on land as well as at sea.
