Sanlorenzo reveals ultra-private 44m superyacht model X-Space

16 June 2021• Written by Tom McGhie

Italian builder Sanlorenzo has presented a new 44 metre superyacht model named the  X-Space, and revealed that the first unit is under construction and due for delivery in 2023.

Spread over five decks, the X-Space features exterior design by Zuccon International Project, with interiors penned by Piero Lissoni.

Speaking about the new design, Bernardo Zuccon said: “The X-Space project was born with the desire not to create a wonderful floating structure but to create a wonderful vessel for life.”

The X-Space features a 495GT interior and is designed specifically around privacy, with the upper deck dedicated to the owner. This deck includes a private apartment, study, living room and large master cabin. The cabin leads directly onto a private terrace at the bow, with a 30sqm sunbed area and swimming pool.

The wheelhouse and captain’s cabin meanwhile have been moved onto the deck above, while the placement of the owner’s cabin on the upper deck has freed up the main deck, which traditionally features the master suite.

“I think it has never been so important as it has in this project to seek to identify with the owner, who will be the great commander of this boat, hence the desire to create an entire deck dedicated to their needs,” said Zuccon.

Another key design tenet is the amount of glass featured throughout the design. It is, Lissoni said, “a boat almost entirely made of glass.”

Large panes of glass and large windows are found throughout, while the portholes in cabins have been replaced with “glass walls”. This helps “eliminate the barriers” between the exterior and interior of the yacht, the yard said.

Lissoni added: “The interior has forced its hand on the exterior and the exterior has been so elastic and so well designed that the interior has almost adapted itself in a totally natural way.”

The aft area of the X-Space’s main deck is a spacious terrace with an 18sqm pool overlooking the sea. An open-air living room for guests leads aft to a plush lounging area with two sofas.

While the propulsion package has not yet been revealed, the X-Space will have an estimated range of 4,000 nautical miles at a speed of 10 knots.
