Princess Yachts have unveiled the X95, the first model in Princess Yachts’ new X Class. Developed in collaboration with Princess Yachts’ long-standing naval architect, Bernard Olesinski, and Italian design house Pininfarina, the X95 fuses architectural innovation with all Princess Yachts’ familiar characteristics of quality in craftmanship and materials, interior design, and innovation in technology.
X95 establishes a new ‘Superfly’ X Class, re-imagining the concept of a ‘flybridge’ with extensive outdoor space and innovative segmentation of interior rooms and decks.
The new hull, designed in partnership with Olesinski, evolves the deep-V concept to provide 15% improved efficiency with outstanding stability.
the layout is defined by large, adaptable spaces that can be used and formatted in numerous ways, it offers the owner and guests a flexible boating lifestyle.
Antony Sheriff, Executive Chairman, Princess Yachts, said, “X95 is another bold new concept for Princess Yachts. Borne from our aggressive investment strategy into new technology and world-class design, the X Class creates an entirely new segment, representing another significant step in our new product programme.
We continue to push the boundaries of yacht design and build a brand leadership position in the luxury yacht market.”
The flybridge and main deck interior space cover almost the full length of the yacht, creating the Super Flybridge. According to Princess, the layout provides 10% more outdoor space and 40% more indoor space than a traditional motor yacht.
It is built for a life at sea, and focused on those who wish to spend significant time aboard to explore cruising grounds further afield.
Boarding the boat is via the large teak-laid transom deck platform at the stern, a pair of distinctive stairways immediately lead up to a huge cockpit, and the entrance to the main deck saloon.
The lengthening of the main deck to the bow of the boat has creates space, extending to almost 18 metres.
Andy Lawrence, Head of Design, Princess Yachts, said, “X95 takes spatial architecture on a yacht to a new level. With a large cockpit, rear flybridge, forward flybridge and foredeck areas, owners will have four large and unique outdoor environments on an X95. Combined with the spacious and flexible main deck space and the unique Sky Lounge, the X95 has a range of living spaces, indoor and outdoor, that dwarfs those of any other boat of its size.”
