Golden Yacht’s much-anticipated Project X superyacht hit the water at its facility in Athens. The 289-foot ship is set to commence its journey, but only after several sea trials. It is then expected to head to its owners. That’s excellent news for the yacht’s obviously wealthy owner and for yacht enthusiasts who get to witness the debut of yet another masterpiece. Project X saw a confluence of cultures, and the result is nothing but impressive. British architecture met suave Italian style resulting in an exquisite yacht. Exteriors are designed by Ken Freivokh, who lends the vessel a unique X-shaped structure and umpteen open areas.
The stunning megayacht’s interior was drawn by Massari Design. What strikes one first about Project X is the overall beam that spreads across 49 ft lending the designers an ample canvas to play with. The ship comprises a teak deck, a steel hull, and an aluminium superstructure. Yet another striking element is the internal atrium that spreads across three tiers that can be accessed using glass elevators. With a GT of almost 3000, she can accommodate up to 14 guests in 7 staterooms, with 24 crew members. Needless to say, the owner’s suite is a great spot, giving even high-end hotel rooms a run for their money. The exquisite boat is outfitted with no less than 150 different materials, including leather, marble, and timber.
Project X comes packed with amenities. Considering the owners would spend considerable time on board, there is a generous gym on the sundeck to maintain fitness levels while sailing. A luxurious beach club features a lounge area, a sizeable glass-enclosed swimming pool, and a Turkish Hammam and Finnish Sauna spa. The upper deck is the perfect place for conversations, cocktails, and food featuring a giant 18-seat marble dining table for alfresco entertainment.
In the aft area, there’s a garage, which hosts the yacht’s Pedrazzini boat, according to Boat International. What good is a boat if it doesn’t perform? Golden Yacht’s Project X is a winner on every front as she navigates across the water at a top speed of 17.5 knots. She cruises at 14 knots with twin Caterpillar engines.
