YXXI Yacht Design studio unveiled their latest 127-metre superyacht concept, Project 4.  Preliminary pictures of Project 4  were shown to professionals during the last edition of the Monaco Yacht Show.

Yacht builders and brokers have already shown their interest in it: it has been selected by Lurssen to be part of its design portfolio, alongside with other projects by great designers such as Espen Oeino, Terence Disdale and Tim Heywood.

The yacht’s overall appearance drew its inspiration from automotive design, and the yacht concept boasts features that aim at providing guests with a unique experience on board. The focus in the design was on entertainment and relaxation areas for owners and guests.

The layout comprises an upper deck offering generous space for relaxation, both for sunbathing and enjoying the shade of the mast surface. Thanks to the deck’s high position, guests will enjoy a wide overview of the surrounding landscape, as well as privacy when at anchor or in a port. As a bonus, the mast hides an outdoor cinema screen.

The sundeck offers a sports area, with a full-size tennis court and equipment for basketball, football, badminton, golf, and a folding net prevents balls from falling in the water and can also provide a sunshade.

The main deck is split between private, living and service spaces. In the rear part of the superstructure are the upper saloon and the dining room. Wide doors open on a terrace that can be shaded by a roller sunblind and used as an al-fresco dining room. The central part is occupied by the galley, food and equipment storage rooms, and other service areas. The front part is dedicated to guest accommodation.

On the foredeck, the helipad features an 11-metre lifting platform. Below the dining terrace is the main terrace and the 12-by-8 metre swimming pool, surrounded by shaded and sunny spaces. Nine feet deep, the swimming pool has side walls made of glass, creating an astounding view from the lower level. On both sides of the terrace, stairs lead down to the open beach club at water level.

The first room met when entering the yacht is the main saloon, which also features games and multimedia equipment. Moreover, a 30-seat movie theatre and a video games room can be found in the main salon.

At water level, folding hull doors on both sides of the yacht give access to various guests and service areas. On the port and starboard sides, the two most forward hull doors open onto impressive entertainment equipment including a golf and surfing indoor practice installations.

Project 4 would accommodate up to 30 guests and 46 crew members, with the arrangement and styling of interior spaces customisable according to the owners’ needs and wishes.

The owner’s suite is located forth on the sundeck, with its own spa and private terrace overlooking the yacht bow. Thanks to the sliding glass roof, this terrace can also be enjoyed as an enclosed space.

On the deck below eight guest suites can be found. The two rear suites open on their own private terrace and spa, with a wide view of the sea, with the other suites surrounded by wide balconies for relaxation.

The front part of the main deck is occupied by six additional guest suites, with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the sea. The guest suites have direct access to the foredeck by a folding door in the superstructure.

All rooms would be equipped with electrochromic glass windows that can be automatically or manually tinted to protect them from the sunlight and prevent the visibility from outside, with an elevator enabling easy access to all decks for guests.

The tender garage can store water toys and tenders measuring up to 12 metres. A hull door opens up to a space suitable for a personal submarine, with all the necessary equipment for scuba diving also available.

A covered beach club, with a wide sea-view, which can either be used as a saloon or an evening entertainment space, is also available onboard. Guests can find a fitness room, a massage room, a hair and body-care room, a spa and a sauna. At the rear of the yacht is the open beach club, with a large sunbathing area, and space to accommodate additional equipment or furniture.

YXXI imagined two different eco-friendly solutions for propulsion, each of them with two in-line propellers and a battery bank supplied by autonomous generators. In the first solution, propellers can be driven by both diesel and electric engines via a specific gearbox. A small unidirectional thruster is installed aft for easy manoeuvring. In the second solution, in line propellers are driven by diesel engines only, and an additional electric azimuthing pod allows silent navigation and easy manoeuvring.

In both cases, at cruising speed, the yacht is driven by diesel engines working at their nominal speed for maximum fuel savings and emission reduction. At low speed, only silent electrical energy is used. At high speed, diesel and electric sources can be mixed to have maximum power.
