The first hull of the all-new Princess X80 is now in the water and was just featured at the recent shipyard event. Similar to the larger X95 Super Flybridge, the X80 has unique lines for a Princess as the upper and main decks stretch the length of the yacht. The "Super Flybridge" name is well-deserved as it features three separate socializing areas on the X-80: a forward flybridge seating area, an enclosed, climate-controlled bridge, and the aft flybridge lounge area. This change comes as more yacht owners have asked for more entertainment space on the flybridge since this is where the best views are and where guests tend to want to spend their time.
The X80 standard power are twin MAN V12 1900mhp engines that provide a stable, comfortable cruise in the mid-20 knot range with a top end speed of 31 knots.

From the Princess Shipyard: The beautifully sculpted surfaces and long flowing design lines of the X95 are carried through into her sister ship, the X80. The all-new X80 becomes the second member of the X Class ‘Superfly’ family. She has a ‘super flybridge’ providing in excess of 30% more useful interior space onboard than a traditional flybridge yacht of its length.
Available with an optional main deck master stateroom which includes a private owner’s sundeck, the X80’s capabilities for adventure provides the opportunity to explore cruising grounds further afield with the option of a long range 2,324 gallon tank.
The X80 brings the outside in through the maximisation of glazing which flows along the entire length of the main deck encasing the saloon, galley and forward dining area. The use of light and innovative design continues below decks where 8 guests are accommodated across 4 en-suite cabins, a full beam master stateroom located amidships, a forward guest stateroom, a double guest to starboard and a twin cabin to port. Located aft of the main accommodation is the crew quarters which can accommodate 3 crew with the standard layout. Life on-board the X80 really is unlike that of any other boat of its size.
