Princess X95, a superflybridge yacht designed for distant adventures

In September 2018, the British manufacturer Princess Yachts announced the launch of a brand new 29-metre yacht with a "superflybrige", the Princess X95. Almost two years later, the N° 1 hull hit the water and the result is rather sumptuous.

A superflybridge

The X95 is the first model of the new X series. The latter features a flybridge covering almost the entire main deck area, creating the Super Flybridge - the defining feature of the X Class. This new layout offers 10% more exterior space and 40% more interior space than a traditional motor yacht.

In addition to this feature, the Princess X95 is distinguished by its flowing lines that extend from bow to stern and surfaces that intertwine glass and superstructure. The result is a completely new boat concept, which nonetheless retains the design characteristics of Princess Yachts.

A new, more efficient hull

The Princess X95 was designed by Olesinski's naval architect, in partnership with the legendary Italian design house Pininfarina. The hull has been particularly worked on and equipped with a new bow design that extends the waterline forward with a strong heeling. The manufacturer claims that this new hull offers a 15% improvement in efficiency compared to a traditional hull.

A custom layout

On board, the sleeping area - which can accommodate up to 8 guests - is located on the lower deck. There is a main cabin in the beam in the centre of the boat, two double cabins and a VIP suite with double bed in the bow. However, the first X95 offers 5 cabins, with a transverse owner's suite on the main deck. The lower deck has also been fitted out in a non-standard way with an aft VIP cabin with adjoining gym, with treadmill and TRX training area (suspension exercises).

Many options

Customization options for this first model include custom exterior paint in midnight blue and, inside, a custom living room layout including a family style dining table. There is also a projector with a large cinema screen on canvas scrolling aft of the flybridge. It is also possible to opt for a layout that can accommodate up to 5 crew members on board, demonstrating just how flexible the X95's configuration really is.

Incredible autonomy

The Princess X95 is powered by two MAN V12 engines with a total of 3800 HP giving it a maximum speed of over 23 knots. With a fuel capacity of 13?400 litres and a new hull design, the X95 is designed for faraway adventures.
