Princess Yachts in the United Kingdom is planning a live Facebook launch for the new Princess X95 on July 27.
The online event is expected to last for a few hours with a tour of the yacht, inside and out. Speakers will include Princess Yachts’ executive board members, who will discuss different areas of the yacht’s development—everything from design and development to manufacturing.
The Princess X95 is the first model in the builder’s new X Class. The yacht has large, adaptable spaces that are designed to give owners a flexible onboard lifestyle. The interior can be used for privacy or parties, and the flybridge and main deck interiors span nearly the yacht’s full length.
Princess says this design approach creates a “super flybridge,” and that the layout provides 10 percent more outdoor space and 40 percent more indoor space than owners would have aboard a traditional motoryacht of the same length.
The X95 has a wave-piercing hull design from naval architect Bernard Olesinski. The builder says it increases overall efficiency by 15 percent when compared to a traditional monohull form. Powered with twin 1,900 hp MAN V-12 diesels, the yacht had a top-end speed of 23-plus knots during initial sea trials off Plymouth, England, according to the builder. Princess worked with Italian design firm Pininfarina on the vessel’s styling. The X95 can be set up with four or five staterooms, with a full-beam amidships master belowdecks or with a full-beam main-deck master.
