About the X80
The beautifully sculpted surfaces and long flowing design lines of the X95 are carried through into her sister ship, the X80. Due to take to the water in Autumn 2021, the X80 becomes the second member of the X Class ‘Superfly’ family. The X80 has a ‘super flybridge’ providing in excess of 30% more useful interior space onboard than a traditional flybridge yacht of its length and is available with an optional main deck master stateroom which includes a private owner’s sundeck. The X80′s capabilities for adventure provides the opportunity to explore cruising grounds further afield with the option of a long range 8,800 litre tank.
The stature of the X80 profile is defined through the increased height of the bulwarks, topsides and enclosed wheelhouse. Her ‘S’ shaped canopy flows into the flybridge deck to balance the visual weight and disguise the volume of the expansive 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 8 guests are accommodated across 4 en-suite 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 3 crew with the standard layout. Life on-board the X80 really is unlike that of any other boat of its size.
