With naval architecture completed in-house and exterior styling by Guida Design, the 30-metre yacht has a planing hull built in composite and carbon fibre and can reach an impressive maximum speed of 37 knots.
The owner’s cabin is positioned on the lower deck amidships to take advantage of the 7.3-metre maximum beam. There is a VIP cabin and two further cabins accommodating a total of 10 guests.
The focal point of the Extra X99 Fast is the 75-square-metre stern, spanning three social areas sloping down towards the sea. These are the open beach club, featuring unfolding bulwarks and a swim platform; the lounge area, furnished with sun loungers and sofas; the dining area, fitted with a multi-purpose console and extendable table that seats 12.
The yacht’s open-top sundeck comes with a bar and Bimini shade and is accessible via an external staircase on the starboard side for a secluded, private feel. Other key features include four-metre tender storage on the foredeck, a dedicated garage on the starboard side, and a second bar in the main saloon.
There are plenty of lounge spaces, including sofa seating in the cockpit, a set of sunpads on the aft deck, armchairs and an L-shaped sofa in the main saloon. The coffee tables serving these sofas can be turned into a table to create a second internal dining area.
Interiors are by Luca Dini, who has used muted sand tones with “masculine” materials such as steel and leather inserts and smoke-effect black lacquered glass. Statement marble is weaved throughout, including Calacatta Borghini in the dining areas and Golden Spider in the bathrooms.
The yacht has an aft galley that benefits from a removable glass partition, allowing the space to be used exclusively by the chef or opened to create a more informal cooking space.
The X99 Fast model will be exhibited at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2023 and will then be based in Miami. She now joins sistership Il Sogno on the water.Read More/First 30m Extra X99 Fast launched
