Abstract : The purpose of this paper is compute the number of semistar operations of certain classes of finite dimensional Pr\"ufer domains. We prove that $|SStar(R)|=|Star(R)|+|Spec(R)|+|Idem(R)|$ where $Idem(R)$ is the set of all nonzero idempotent prime ideals of $R$ if and only if $R$ is a Pr\"ufer domain with $Y$-graph spectrum, that is, $R$ is a Pr\"ufer domain with exactly two maximal ideals $M$ and $N$ and $Spec(R)=\{(0)\subsetneq P_{1}\subsetneq\dots\subsetneq P_{n-1}\subsetneq M, N| P_{n-1}\subsetneq N\}$. We also characterize non-local Pr\"ufer domains $R$ such that $|SStar(R)|=7$, respectively $|SStar(R)|=14$.

Keywords : Star operation, semistar operation, Prufer domain, Y -graph spectrum.
