Milanese design studio Federico Fiorentino and Italian high-speed RIB (rigid inflatable boat) builder, SACS with its Bespoke Operation Division (SBO) has teamed up on a new concept project named X-80. The 24-metre-long cruiser is the latest result of the duo’s collaborative efforts following several smaller RIBS created by the pair in the past.Photo: Federico Fiorentino
The X-80 is designed to operate as a luxury chase boat for larger superyachts and is designed with foam pontoons surrounding the vessel to reduce the effects of impacts on the RIB itself and the mothership. Photo: Federico FiorentinoPhoto: Federico Fiorentino
Designed for outdoor living as a stand-alone day boat or mothership escape craft to explore shallower waters, the X-80 features 60-square-metres worth of deck space with built-in sunbed and large swim platform for watersports activities. Inside, there is space for five persons in a full-beam master suite, a twin guest cabin and a crew cabin in the forepeak. Photo: Federico FiorentinoPhoto: Federico Fiorentino
Irrespective of the selected propulsion system, the X-80 will benefit from the handling and seagoing characteristics all SACS craft are known for.
