Onboard: The 27m YXT 24 Evolution support vessel by Lynx Yachts

Written by Laura Nicholls

With the aim of creating a more adaptable yacht for the next generation of explorers, Lynx Yachts created the “yacht extender” YXT series and the 27.3-metre YXT 24 Evolution model. Now with Wally Shadow delivered in 2018 and hull 2 sold and due for delivery at the end of this year, owners of the YXT 24 Evolution will benefit from a flexible interior layout and large external spaces for all additional toys, equipment and guests to be transported alongside the mothership.

Lynx Yachts offers a range of customisations to each YXT 24 Evolution, which comes as the ‘perfect engineering platform’ for their clients.
