Combining cutting-edge design, luxurious interiors, and exceptional craftsmanship, YYachts delivers an unparalleled sailing experience.

Virtue Yachts, bring to Carbon Yachts a new innovative take on the day boating experience. Their launch model, the V10, was designed with sustainability in mind, featuring carbon fibre throughout, including in the hull and dashboard in order to keep the boat light-weight. With Swedish designed Petestep hull and an Evoy electric outboard option, the V10 has been designed to minimise fuel consumption and appeal to ecofriendly consumers.

Swedish brand Candela, has received global attention for their groundbreaking innovation in electric boating. Utilizing cutting-edge technology and design, along with its advanced hydrofoiling system, Candela effortlessly glides above the water, reducing energy consumption and ensuring a smooth, silent ride. Combining luxury, sustainability, and exceptional performance, Candela sets a new standard in emission-free yachting.

What ties the Carbon Yachts portfolio together is the extensive use of carbon fibre in the construction of these exceptional vessels. Carbon fibre offers strength, lightness, and durability unmatched by traditional boat building materials. This results in vessels that are not only visually stunning but also deliver superior performance on the water. This commitment to carbon fibre as a core element underscores Carbon Yachts’ dedication to providing customers with the best-in-class luxury yachts.
