Latest addition to X Class series is set for launch in 2021
Princess Yachts has revealed images of its new 25-metre X80, which is set for launch in 2021. The Princess X80 is the latest addition to the British builder’s X Class series, and is the sister ship of the X95.
Designed by award-winning studio Olesinski and Italian design house Pininfarina, the X80 follows the “sophisticated sculpted surfaces” and “long flowing lines” of the X95, with large and adaptable living spaces for flexible accommodation. The expansive “super flybridge” and main deck cover almost the entire length of the yacht, offering plenty of outdoor space for guests.
“The X Class’s ground-breaking architecture creates an entirely new product segment as Princess continues to push the boundaries of yacht design,” says Antony Sheriff, executive chairman of Princess Yachts. “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.”
Fitted with twin MAN V12 1900’s the X80 will reach speeds up to 30 knots. An ‘S’ shaped canopy flows into the flybridge deck to balance the visual weight and disguise the volume of the 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 saloon, galley and forward dining area.
The use of light and innovative design continues below decks, where eight guests are accommodated across 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, which can accommodate three crew with the standard layout.
