Young 65 – 2017Spain
Young 65 General Information
The Young 65 is a sailing catamaran has been built in full carbon sandwich construction using vacuum-infusion technology. The design is based on the TAG 60 of well- known designer Greg Young which has been modified to comply with the owner’s individual requirements regarding performance, seaworthiness and structural integrity. The modifications have been developed in agreement with the designer and structural engineers.
During the entire production process the owner did not compromise quality, which can be proved in each detail.
The sailing catamaran “EOS” applied for CE-certification in design category A.
A recreational craft given design category A is considered to be designed for winds that may exceed wind force 8 (Beaufort scale) and significant wave height of 4 m and above but excluding abnormal conditions, such as storm, violent storm, hurricane, tornado and extreme sea conditions or rogue waves.
Hull and Superstructure
Hull and bulkheads are built in full carbon sandwich construction with Corecell foam core using vacuum infusion technology. Even the bonding laminates were applied with vacuum infusion. Lamination works were performed following highest boatbuilding standard. Laminate layup is visible on most of the inside surfaces, structural members can be perfectly accessed.
Hulls provide forward and aft crash boxes for additional safety in case of collision The outer skin is spray-coated with Alexseal grey colour in professional quality.
Deck and Superstructure
Deck and Superstructure are also built in full carbon sandwich with Corecell foam core using vacuum infusion.
Basic idea for the construction was to keep the structure as continuous as possible. This can be seen at the continuous main bulkhead, or at the main deck, that continues in one part as work top in the galley, which causes minor restrictions for the interior on one hand, but allows a maximum stiffness without additional weight.
Deck and superstructure are spray-coated with Alexseal white colour in professional quality. The windows are individually shaped and manufactured in coloured laminated safety-glass. All deck hatches are Lewmar flush carbon versions equipped with solar fans.
Working-deck and cockpit are covered with cork flooring
The entire interior follows the hull structure almost without hidden parts. Structural members of the yacht are visible, which creates light and technical interior without any covers and just a few additional furniture. Most of the surfaces are either high gloss carbon laminate, or white coated, only a few areas are covered with textile fabric.
The U-form pantry on port side is fully equipped with tree fridges, deep freezer, double sink, induction with 4 plates, microwave, galley extractor hood and espresso machine. Work top with high gloss full carbon surface.

Chart table with navigation instruments, computer and large daybed are situated in front of the main bulkhead under the windshield and can be accessed from port hull.
The cockpit is separated from the salon by a large sliding door and offers a large C-shape sofa framing a carbon table with integrated plancha, grill and induction-field. A full flexible protective enclosure with windows provides shelter from wind and rain.
The port hull includes an aft double cabin separated by a sliding door with storage and desk area midship, as well as a bathroom with shower and carbon toilet in the front.
The starboard hull provides a double cabin separated by a sliding door in the aft, a day toilet midship and a double cabin with two single beds, storage, a bathroom with carbon toilet and shower in the front.
The bow peaks provide storage for fenders and mooring lines as well as a Bauer diving compressor on port side and a carbon rack for three diving cylinders on starboard side. Bow thrusters (2.5 HP each) and holding tanks are also installed in this compartment. Access to the bow peaks effects on high grade carbon ladders with wooden inlays.
The engine rooms on the aft end of the hulls can be accessed from the cockpit with carbon stairs and from the transom stairs.
