More I think about it, if Yorktown had been severely crippled by the Whalesong Probe, that might explain the state she was in after she had been renamed Enterprise-A.
Why would she be any more crippled than other vessels subjected to the "whale song"?
I don't think she would. I think they were all crippled generally the same way.

Kirk doesn't say any variation of "transwarp drive, the Great Experiment", he says, "My friends, the Great Experiment, the Excelsior". That to me points that the ship itself is unique.
It can also be taken as she's the first ship of her class.
