Yachting - Princess X 95, the first model in a new motoryacht range

The concept behind the development of this range is based on an Open Space, a concept successfully developed by Bali Catamarans in the world of pleasure catamarans, and created by the Taiwanese Horizon Yachts with its FD Series (architect Cor D. Rover), in the world of monohull motoryachts.

This concept, which aims to optimise the "habitable" or useful surface area on board, is a strong trend in the world of yachting, which is seeing the Frenchman Prestige Yachts doing the same, with the eagerly awaited Prestige X70 unveiled at the same time as the Princess X 95, this autumn.

For the British yachtsman, the Open Space consists of offering vast living spaces, easily convertible, offering owners and guests a unique and flexible nautical lifestyle. Another innovation is the fusion of the flybridge and the main deck into a single space, covering the entire surface of the yacht.  

The layout of the space is therefore practical and user-friendly.

The interior design of the X95 allows the owner to define each voyage according to the preferences of his guests - comfort and relaxation, a high level of privacy, or entertainment and hospitality, for example.  

Antony Sheriff, Executive President of Princess Yachts, commented on Yachting Art Magazine: "X95 is another bold new concept for Princess Yachts. Resulting from our strategy of aggressive investment in new technologies and the world the X Class creates an entirely new segment, which represents another important milestone in our new product program. We continue to push the boundaries of yacht design and build a leading position in the luxury yacht market", with a unique concept for the interior space of the flybridge and main deck, which cover almost the entire length of the yacht, creating the Super Flybridge - the defining feature of the X-Class.

10% more exterior space and 40% more interior space, at equivalent length

The layout of the Princess X95 offers 10% more exterior space and 40% more interior space than a traditional motor yacht.

This leap forward in space and versatility reflects recent innovations by luxury car brands that have developed crossover models.

The creation of this X-Class yacht based on the Princess design is the work of their long-time naval architect, Bernard Olesinski, in partnership with the Italian design house Pininfarina SpA.  

After delivering the style of the R35, Pininfarina worked in collaboration with Olesinski to create a highly functional, adventure-focused prestige yacht.  

Designed for a less ordinary life

Life on the Princess X95 is unlike that of any other boat this size. It is built for life at sea, and is designed for those who want to spend a lot of time on board to explore more distant cruising grounds.  

Climbing aboard through the large teak aft deck platform, two distinctive staircases lead immediately to a huge cockpit, before the entrance to the main deck saloon begins the stunning experience of living aboard the very first Princess X Class.

We'll be sure to return to this yacht off the beaten track in future editions.
