Great design studios live for the challenge searching for inspiration by exploring new areas. British luxury motor yacht manufacturer Princess Design Studio, iconic Italian design house Pininfarina design and naval architecture experts Olesinski team up on a new range of luxurious yachts. The X95 will surely become the progenitor of a series of icons resulting by the strategic partnership among nautical excellences.
In addition to the R35 yacht, the first Princess R Class performance sports yacht that made its debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September 2018, Princess Design Studio, Pininfarina and Olesinski have worked on the new X95 motor yacht, which will pose itself as the pioneer of the novel X Class. The new design is part of the broader project which envisions a full range of yachts divided in two classes and distinguished by the creation of a redefined brand identity.
Both her flybridge and main deck cover almost the full length of the yacht
The new R and the X Classes will represent the efforts of a long-term partnership among leaders in the nautical sectors: Princess Yachts, British luxury motor yacht manufacturer, Olesinski, design and naval architecture studio, Pininfarina, Italian design house, and Ben Ainslie Racing Technologies, nautical experts with deep competences in the use of carbon fiber.
The X95 motor yacht represents the perfect habitat for those who wish to spend more time abroad and enjoy broad living spaces coupled with astonishing architectures. The X95 will be characterized by the ‘Super Flybridge’ which,together with the main deck area below, will offer nearly the entire length of the yacht to be enjoyed as pleasant living areas.
“With Princess the challenge was to make a step back, learning, understanding the heritage and then designing the identity of a full range of products strongly innovative and, at the same time, consistent with Princess’ DNA,” explained Paolo Pininfarina, Chairman of the Group.
Antony Sheriff, Executive Chairman, Princess Yachts said: “Innovation is key to our growth and investment plan, and the R35 defines innovation. It’s the product of collaborations with global-leaders in their fields; Pininfarina and Ben Ainslie Racing Technologies. The yacht features the revolutionary use of a world-first foiling system, aerodynamics inspired by the performance road car and Formula 1 industries, and is the world’s first fully carbon production sports yacht.
