After the launch of the X95, Princess Yachts has announced a new addition to the range. Due to take to the water next year, the X80 becomes the second member of the Superfly X Class.
The Princess X80 follows the X95 concept defined by large, adaptable spaces offering flexible accommodation and incorporating the concept of a super flybridge.
The X80 has been designed to offer the most versatile and accommodating experience while keeping design and style at the forefront.
Antony Sheriff, Executive Chairman, Princess Yachts, said: “The X Class’s groundbreaking architecture creates an entirely new product segment as Princess continues to push the boundaries of yacht design. The first X95 has just completed sea trials, and her revolutionary design has caused a stir.
“Initial feedback makes it clear that we have a great success on our hands. We have worked over the past two years to envelop all of the X95’s unique qualities into a more compact package. The X80 is just that – another bold step for Princess Yachts.”
The design of the X80’s hull has led to efficiencies across the speed range while ensuring the highest levels of seakeeping and predictable handling.
Fitted with twin MAN V12 1900s, the X80 will reach speeds of up to 30 knots.
The profile of the X80 is defined through the increased height of the bulwarks, topsides and enclosed wheelhouse. Her S-shaped canopy flows into the flybridge deck to balance the visual weight and disguise the volume of the expansive sky lounge.
The X80 brings the outside in through the maximisation of glazing, which flows along the entire length of the main deck encasing the salon, galley and forward dining area.
Below decks there are four cabins, a full-beam master stateroom located amidships, a forward guest stateroom, a double guest to starboard and a twin cabin to port.
Located aft of the main accommodation is the crew quarters that can accommodate three crew with the standard layout.
