Princess X95 on sea trial

The first all-new Princess X95 has been on sea trial in Plymouth, England this week, ahead of her delivery to a customer of Princess Motor Yacht Sales.

The new Princess X95 establishes a new ‘Superfly’ X Class, re-imagining the concept of a flybridge yacht with extensive outdoor space and innovative configuration, making the most of every inch of space on board.

The X95 was developed as a collaboration between Bernard Olesinski and legendary Italian styling house Pininfarina, boasting luxury and comfort with clean and elegant styling and form.

Her new hull, which was designed exclusively by Olesinski, evolves the original deep-V concept to provide 15% improved efficiency with outstanding stability and sea-keeping. Having delivered the styling for the revolutionary R35, Pininfarina worked in collaboration with Olesinski to craft a statement yacht focused on adventure – the ultimate in contemporary yet highly functional yacht architecture.

With both main and fly decks that extend virtually the entire length of the yacht, allied to an enclosed, climate-controlled Sky Lounge and flexible open-plan layouts, the X95 fuses the space and luxury of a superyacht with the range and purpose of a compact explorer vessel. In fact, with a relatively high superstructure and vast glass panels, tempered by the use of long, elegant horizontal lines, her volume-optimised design brings with it a striking external aesthetic that almost feels like the pioneer for a fresh form of motor yacht.
