S/Y “YEARS OF LAUGHTER”
VALLICELLI 68′
CN YACHTS 2000

General

Y.O.L. alias “Years of Laughter” is a custom-built sloop, designed by Andrea Vallicelli, built by CN Yachts 2000 (now Ice Yachts) and was launched in 2005. The shipyard is well-known for its craftsmanship of carbon-fibre projects. In 2016, Y.O.L. changed ownership for the first time. In 2017, an extensive refit was completed by Ice Yachts and her original naval architect was involved. Ever since, the yacht has been continuously upgraded to the highest standards. This performance cruiser is ready to discover new destinations and compete in regattas.

INTERIOR

Inside the light and spacious saloon there is a dining table on the port side and a comfortable lounge sofa on starboard. In the stern are two double guest cabins with en-suit bathrooms. There is a fully equipped galley and in the bow a full beam owners’ cabin with en-suit bathroom. From the foredeck it is possible to enter the double crew cabin. The yacht is self-sufficient and equipped for long stays onboard in comfort. Layout plan
