The second hull in the Lynx Yachts YXT 24 Evolution support vessel series Deer Shadow was delivered.

This comes after the fully customized 27.3m motor yacht was launched at a small ceremony in March this year. Sold in June 2018, Deer Shadow features an exterior design penned by Bernd Wheel Design. The interior is designed by Darnet Design while the engineering is courtesy of Diana Yacht Design.

The owner already has a larger yacht and chose to build a Lynx 24 Evolution to accompany the mothership and carry a plethora of toys. As a watersports enthusiast who enjoys kitesurfing, scuba diving and catamarans and sailboats, the owner chose Lynx to transport those toys, extra gear and also provide extra guest accommodation.

The 75 square meter main deck houses a 9.8 meter Pascoe beach undercarriage, two Sea Doos and a knuckle boom crane with a carrying capacity of 3,930 tons.

The lower deck has a beach club that offers direct access to this deck for easy access to the sea for diving or kite-surfing activities. There’s also a 100-inch outdoor screen for movie nights or sporting events.

With a beam of seven meters, Deer Shadow has two large cabins amidships, one for the storage of port equipment, while the other is equipped for washing sports equipment and accessories. There are two crew cabins forward, a large crew mess, three refrigerators, three freezers, three washing machines and three dryers to maximize her duties as a support vessel.

Lynx Sales and Marketing Director Filippo Rossi described the owner as “a true gentleman, passionate about the sea and a true water sports enthusiast”.

He added: “We are very proud of this new vessel and would like to express our special thanks to the entire team involved in the construction.

“In particular, we would also like to thank the owner, his representative and ACP Surveyors, for the great cooperation
during lockdown and this unprecedented time we are all facing.”

Power comes from two 800 hp MAN engines for a cruising speed of 12 knots.
