EXTRA Yachts just launched its first X99Fast yacht in Ancona, Italy. EXTRA says it has Americanized the new 43-knot yacht, and it will be heading for Miami.
The new EXTRA was designed by Guida, and the naval architecture was by Palumbo Superyachts. The X99 Fast can hold up to ten guests in four cabins, plus four crew in two cabins.
The galley is aft in the salon, concealed behind a glass partition that can be raised or lowered for privacy. It leads to a large aft deck that slopes down to the water. Twin balconies can be lowered from the bulwarks to port and starboard, and the aft deck becomes a large social and entertaining zone with lounges and a table that can be extended for 12 people. A large sun lounge can be converted to face aft for a view of the sea or water sports.
A dedicated garage on the starboard side is large enough to hold a 13-foot Williams jet tender. Two jet skis are tied down on the bow, with a hydraulic crane for launching; a sun lounge for two people is set a bit aft.
The planing hull is laid up with a carbon fiber and GRP composite. Standard power comes from two 2,600-hp 16V MTU diesels. During sea trials, those engines produced a cruising speed of 28 knots and a top speed of 37 knots. EXTRA says with an optional third engine the X99Fast will top out at 43 knots.
On the flybridge, the helm station is on the starboard side with two seats. Two lounges are across on the port side, with a large U-shaped lounge and table aft. An outdoor galley and bar are across to starboard.
Below, the master stateroom is full-beam amidships on the accommodations deck, accessed by a private staircase from the salon. Two smaller guest cabins are forward, and the VIP is all the way forward. All the cabins have en suite heads.
EXTRA is a brand of ISA yachts; its fleet ranges from 76 to 130 feet.
