The YU-1001 class (transport craft, yuso-tei) were a larger version of the YU-1 but gained little more than a modest increase in speed. About 14 were completed beginning in November 1944 of which only four survived the war.
An unknown number of very similar YU-2001 class units were laid down in 1945, but it is not known if any were completed.
