Following the first of the range, the X95, Princess Yachts announced a new addition. Due to take to the water next year, the X80 becomes the second member of the X Class ‘Superfly’ family.
The Princess X80 follows the lead of her sister, the X95, offering generous and adaptable spaces. The new model incorporates a “superflybrige” featuring extensive outdoor space, providing for an alfresco living opportunity.
Antony Sheriff, Executive Chairman, Princess Yachts, commented: “The X Class’ groundbreaking architecture creates an entirely new product segment as Princess continues to push the boundaries of yacht design. The first X95 has just completed sea trials and her revolutionary design has caused a stir. Initial feedback makes it clear that we have 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 “.
Olesinski and Italian design studio Pininfarina have once again collaborated, creating a model that follows the sculpted surfaces and long flowing lines of the X95. Fitted with twin MAN V12 1900’s, the X80 will reach speeds up to 30 knots.
The X80 profile is characterized by the increased height of the bulwarks, topside, and enclosed wheelhouse. The S-shaped canopy connected to the flybridge deck balances the visual weight, disguising the volume of the expansive sky lounge. Glazing flows along the entire length of the main deck, encasing the saloon, galley and forward dining area.
Below decks, 8 guests are accommodated across 4 cabins, a full-beam master stateroom located amidships, a forward guest stateroom, a double guest to starboard and a twin cabin to port
