Princess Yachts has just released new images of the innovative X95 ‘superfly’, which is set to be unveiled late 2019. Re-imagining the traditional ‘flybridge’ design, the Princess X95 is an entirely new concept dubbed the luxury SUV of the seas.
Promising to redefine yacht architecture, the X95 is distinguished by its extensive outdoor space and open-plan interior that’s likened to the design of a luxury automotive SUV. The newly released images show the work Princess Yachts has carried out with styling house Pininfarina to redefine the architecture, exterior and interior space of luxury yachts, taking into account the British yacht manufacturer’s focus on technological innovation and reputation for quality in craftsmanship.
Antony Sheriff, the executive chairman of Princess Yachts, says: “The X95 breaks the mold of traditional yacht design. The unique open plan architecture is brought to life through our design partnership with the legendary styling house Pininfarina. The layout provides 10 percent more outdoor space and 40 percent more indoor space than a traditional motor yacht. This leap forward in space and versatility mirrors recent innovations from luxury automotive brands who have developed crossover models.”
The X95 is the first model in Princess Yachts’ new X Class range, which will be defined by large, adaptable spaces that can be formatted in a number of different ways to suit the owners’ boating style.
