If X marks the spot, then X5 marks a spot where 10 people in an owner’s party are making the most they can of the yachting lifestyle. X5 is the newest Princess 40M, hull number four in this 132-foot (40-meter) megayacht series.
In keeping with Princess’ tradition, the owners of X5 selected the decor treatments found throughout the three decks. High-gloss cherrywood, along with satins and brightly colored velvets, create a luxe look. The master suite aboard X5 features bright punches of red, for example, while the VIP below decks has vibrant yellows and golds. Some special treatments are also onboard, notably backlit onyx in the dining area. At night, the bulkhead adorned with the stone softly sets the mood. It further highlights the custom-made macassar ebony dining table. More eye-catching stonework lies in the master shower. It’s lined with nero portoro marble, coveted for its gold veins flowing against a deep-black backdrop.
The owners of X5 collaborated with Princess’ in-house design studio and Fendi Casa in selecting the wall and floor treatments plus furnishings you’ll see in this photo gallery. You’ll also see the Fendi marque on a few of the accessories, naturally, from the five staterooms to the skylounge.
X5 carries a crew of seven in three cabins as well.
