First look: 25m Princess X80 makes global debut

28 January 2022• Written by Holly Overton

The first 25 metre Princess X80 superyacht has made its global debut at the Princess shipyard in Plymouth after successfully completing sea trials.

The Princess X80 is the second in the shipyard's X Class Superfly range, following on from its larger sibling, the X95. The X80 claims to provide 30% more interior space than a traditional flybridge yacht of the same length.

Designed by Princess in collaboration with Bernard Olesinski and Italian design house Pininfarina, the X80 is packed with large adaptable spaces, flexible accommodation and extensive outdoor space, thanks to a focus on al fresco living.

The yacht takes inspiration from the “sophisticated sculpted surfaces and long flowing lines of the X95” while retaining the “well respected and internationally recognised classic Princess design,” the yard said.

Defined by high bulwarks and an enclosed wheelhouse, the exterior of the X80 features glazing along the main deck. Elsewhere, the yacht features a skylounge on the upper deck accessible by internal stairs on the main deck, which is dedicated to living areas.

Accommodation on board is for eight guests in four cabins, comprising a full beam master stateroom amidships, forward guest stateroom, double guest to starboard and twin cabin to port. Aft of the accommodation sits the crew quarters, which is large enough for three. Fitted with twin MAN V12 1900 engines, the X80 will have a top speed of 30 knots.

Speaking about the new model, Princess executive chairman Antony Sheriff said: “The immediate success of the X95 demonstrates that we have a successful formula on our hands, the X Class really does represent a mould-breaking design and architectural direction for Princess Yachts."

"We have now translated the X95’s unique formula to a smaller package and we are immensely proud of the X80, a striking new addition to our range."
