Germany's YYachts (yes, that's how it's spelled) combined the extreme comfort with competitive sailing performance in its newest model: the Y7. 

The Ladebow-based watercraft company teamed up with world-renowned naval architect Bill Tripp to design the swanky ship.

Thanks to 300 square meters of canvas and a total weight of 29 tons—on the light side, by yachting standards—the 70-foot-long vessel can sail in even the slightest of wind without firing up the dual, 75-horsepower Volvo Penta engines.

Despite its formidable size, the Y7 can also be manned by one helmsman at any given time, as all halyards, sheets and stretchers can be controlled with the steering columns.

The deck is arranged like a home patio, with two weatherproof, five-person couches positioned across from on another and two modern wood tables in between. In the rear, a jet ski or other water toy up to 11 feet in length can be launched from the garage with help from the carbon fiber mast.

But when its time to drop anchor, a totally modular gallery offers a luxurious indoor retreat with a "Scandinavian-warm" atmosphere.

A living room, kitchenette, master bedroom, guest bedroom and bathroom can be configured in five different floor plans, each of which feature with high-quality smoked or bleached oak wood fittings developed by Milanese and Copenhagen craftsmen.
