Y Le Yacht introduces an innovative and sustainable way to explore some of the world’s most sought after destinations

The first fully electric floating hotel has made its United Arab Emirates debut following the Dubai International Boat Show. Presented by World Hospitality Yachts, the floating electric hotel, Y Le Yacht Dubai, was conceived by Jean-Pierre Heim, Paul Bensabata and Tony Vamvakidi. The sustainable luxury yachts first premiered in New York City a few months ago and featured the continental version.

Y Le Yacht Dubai is dubbed as the tropical version with the vessel intended for use in warm climates. Features unique to the tropical version include open air port and starboard decks. Sketches also show a Coral Underwater Observation Room with windows fixed into both sides of the hull. The tropical yacht takes its design inspiration from the flying fish. Activity options when staying on the Dubai yacht will include marine diving and other sports activities.

Other possible destinations for Y Le Yacht experiences include Shanghai, Miami, Paris, Montenegro and Santorini. Guests choosing to stay aboard one of these floating hotels can expect the ability to explore their chosen destination at their leisure and for as many nights as they choose to book. Y Le Yachts will travel around their destinations, offering guests varied views of their getaway.

Guests staying on the continental and tropical versions can expect views from any of the 20 available suites. These include two ultra large suites that are 48 square metres, 12 large suites of 30 square metres and six suites of 25 square metres. Luxury is elevated aboard the both yachts with personal butler service included with each suite.

Wellness facilities include three massage rooms, a sauna, a steam room and a gym with private trainers. Outside, guests can relax poolside while taking in the views of their scenic destination from the sundeck. Meals will be designed by a private Michelin star chef while the lounge will feature fine wines and spirits stored in the yacht’s wine and champagne cellar. A dual purpose conference room and movie theatre offers the possibility of work and relaxation without having to leave the area.

Y Le Yachts will be available for private rental of the entire floating hotel with tailor-made options available to enhance the group experience. Stays can be customised for celebratory occasions, corporate meetings, pleasure trips and more.
