YaBB to xF converter or conversion process?

Is there a way to effectively convert a YaBB forum to Xenforo? By 'effective' I mean without losing significant amounts of data?
I've done a few Google searches and thought maybe I could go the YaBB->phpBB->xF route but I thought I'd ask here first to see if anyone's actually successfully done it.

Thanks in advance!

Ya, it would require a double import in the absence of a direct importer. I am good with these. How big is your database? I can give it a go if you send me a copy of your database.

Thank you. I think I can handle a double import but I'm wondering which route is best to go and if someone has done this before.

Well I always go through vB, but that's because I know vB inside and out. Though vB's import system does have a lot of quirks such that it helps to have experience with the system if you are going to use it. I have never used phpBB's import system.
