Golden Yachts launched the mysteriously named Project X in April and promises visitors to Monaco Yacht Show 2022 will behold an innovative and category-defining new vessel.

Golden Yachts has launched some of the most prestigious yachts to hit the water in recent years, such as M/Y O’PARI and M/Y O’PTASIA.

At 88-metres, Project X’s beam is 15-metres and she measures close to 3000 GRT, combining the best features of British architecture and Italian style.

The exterior design was undertaken by Ken Freivokh, while her interior style is the work of Massari Design.

The new superyacht, instantly recognisable for the X-shaped column on the superstructure, was launched earlier this year at the Golden Yachts’ shipyard in Athens, Greece. The vessel has now been delivered to her owner.

Project X is the Greek shipyard’s second-largest vessel to date, but also among the top 110 in the world in terms of volume. Across five decks, she has accommodation for 14 guests in seven staterooms, including a large master suite and a VIP suite.


Aesthetically, Project X stands out for the cascading decks and the X-shaped column located centrally on the superstructure, which conceals a three-deck atrium.

Inside the atrium is a glass-walled elevator that connects the three decks, believed to be the first of this size ever installed on a yacht.

Internal glass balconies have also been installed, offering the best views in the house. Special lighting has also been inserted with perimetric glass floor panels.

Amenities include a touch-and-go helipad, a glass-walled pool and a jacuzzi, a large open aft deck for outdoor activities, a conference room, an entertainment room and a superbly equipped spa, including a Finnish sauna and hammam.

Over 150 materials have been used for finishes, from marble and leather to precious wood. The interior design has been described as classically elegant with a modern touch.

The packed garage houses a variety of water toys, including a Pedrazzini Vivale Veloce classic tender and a larger Onda limousine tender.

Project X is powered by twin Caterpillar engines that take it to a top speed of 17.5 knots. At a cruising speed of 14 knots, its range is estimated at 6,000 nautical miles.

Burgess Yachts has the superyacht up for charter, with prices set at US$1.2 million a week in high season.
