We are delighted and proud to announce that "Roe Shadow", the second hull of our YXT 24 Evolution series, was successfully launched on Thursday 12th March.

The vessel touched water for the first time on a beautiful sunny day in Nijkerk but without the usual big launching party in the shipyard, as a sign of respect. Filippo Rossi, our Sales & Marketing manager, stated that: "The shipyard, due to the recent events and uncertain times, has decided to postpone the celebration of this important and special moment both for the yacht's owner, the shipyard and all the cooperators and friends to a more suitable moment, when this very difficult period will be over."

With the exterior lines designed by Bernd Weel, the naval architecture by Diana Yacht Design and the interior design by Darnet Design, "Roe Shadow" embodies all the special features of our custom support vessels.

The 75-square-metre main deck of this 27.30 metre yacht houses a 9.80 m Pascoe beach lander with two outboard engines as well as two Sea Doo GTR 230, which are operated by a HS-Marine knuckle boom crane with a load capacity of 3.930 tons at 5.5 m and 1.960 tons at 10.11 m.

Both the main bridge and the beach platform are covered with natural teak wood allowing them to become, once all the toys are launched, a huge and comfortable terrace on the sea, to enjoy the sun or a barbeque party, a cocktail at sunset or even a movie or a football match thanks to the 100-inch outdoor screen.

The wheel house positioned forward allows a 360-degree view and, in particular, from the large aft window crew can also check on toys and equipment loaded onboard, during navigation.

This robust yet versatile yacht designed to go anywhere has an overall length of 27.30 m and a 7.10 m beam and is powered with two 800 hp MAN engines for a cruising speed of 12 knots.

The interior layout of "Roe Shadow" provides accommodation for four crew members hosted in two forward double cabins, a large crew mess with three refrigerators and three freezers, to increase the storage of the mother ship. The laundry area is equipped with three washing machines and three dryers to extend the mother ship services.

Amidships there are two large cabins: the starboard side one is for the storage of sports equipment, such as wetsuits, kite sails, jackets and similar, while the portside cabin is equipped for washing the sports gear and accessories used during water sports.

Kite boards, scuba dive equipment, surfboards and SUPs as well as inflatable water games and toys are stored in the surf locker inside the lazarette, which has direct access to the beach platform through the large stern hatch. The lazarette also hosts a day head featuring also a practical large shower.

The delivery of the yacht to her passionate owner is scheduled for the first week of April.
