For Yacht type Extreme Gears in general, see here.

Yacht is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is an Extreme Gear Gear Part that transforms the Extreme Gear into a Yacht type.


Yacht is an installable performance-enhancing component for Extreme Gears. Its actual appearance is unknown, though it is presented as an icon on the head-up display in the top-left corner of the game screen. Its icon is a yellow-colored circle with a black Yacht type Extreme Gear inscribed in it.


In the game, Yacht is permanently installed into certain Extreme Gears. When used, Yacht physically transforms the Extreme Gear into a Yacht type Extreme Gear and gives it the same traits of a Yacht type. This allows the player to Air Ride by taking off from Catapults. Additionally, Yacht allows the player to automatically ride on opponents' slipstreams and accelerate on them while riding directly behind the opponent.

During gameplay, Yacht and its ability will be disabled when starting a new race. To activate Yacht, the player must press one of the following buttons after collecting a certain number of Rings:

When activating Yacht, the player's Rings will be reduced accordingly by the number needed to enable it and the Extreme Gear is surrounded by an orange void, indicating that the Gear Part's ability is in effect. The following Extreme Gears come equipped with the Yacth:
