YXXI Yacht Design reveals 127m concept Project #4
by Chris Jefferies
French studio YXXI Yacht Design has revealed its latest concept, the 127 metre Project #4.
With the aim of reflecting a lifestyle of limitless luxury, lead designer and studio founder Thomas Vuaillat drew on the fields of aerospace and automotive design for inspiration. This thinking led to a number of unique features, such as electrochromatic windows in all cabins that can be tinted at the touch of a button.
Designed with an active owner in mind, Project #4 boasts multiple options for sport on board. For example, the superyacht sundeck can be converted into a sports court, suitable for tennis, basketball, football, badminton or golf, while the walkaround bridge deck can be used as a 200 metre running track.
As you might expect from a yacht of this size, there is a dedicated superyacht swimming pool. Situated on the aft deck, the pool measures 12 metres long by eight metres wide and 2.75 metres deep. Glass sidewalls ensure plenty of natural light will filter down into the beach club below.
Accommodation for up to 30 guests is split across 15 staterooms, including an upper deck owner’s suite, complete with its own private spa and terrace, eight bridge deck double cabins and six further doubles on the main deck. The entire lower deck is dedicated to crew and technical areas, with enough room for a staff of 46 people.
Other key features include a 30-seat movie theatre and a superyacht helipad on the foredeck with a maximum diameter of 11 metres.
YXXI Yacht Design adds that Project #4 could be driven by either a diesel-electric or traditional diesel propulsion system supplemented by an electric azipod, with both offering the option for silent cruising.
