It is unusual for so-called small megayachts to have main-deck master suites, or even to be trideck designs. The Extra X96 Triplex combines both, with fuel-friendly propulsion to bring something different to the market. As the first launch, Anvilugi gives curious customers something to consider.
Anvilugi, whose LOA is 93’5” (28.5 meters), comes from the drawing boards of Francesco Guida for styling and Hot Lab for interior design. In keeping with the overall idea of Extra Yachts projects, she belongs to a series emphasizing strong use of space. While other Extra series, like the X76 Loft, are for primarily outdoor living, they still provide more-than-expected volumes inside, especially due to a flushed-forward superstructure. Similarly, the Extra X96 Triplex pushes the superstructure far forward. This not only maximizes interior areas, but also still allows for nice outdoor areas, such as a big seating/sunning pad tucked against the superstructure. Yet, she reserves room for the crew to handle gear at the bow.
As mentioned, the Extra X96 Triplex has fuel-friendly propulsion, specifically triple 1,000-hp Volvo Penta IPS 1350s. Sea trials should confirm a top speed of 16½ knots and an impressive range of 2,000 nautical miles at 12 knots. Since the IPS units occupy less space than traditional diesel engines, the guest staterooms benefit from more elbow room.
You can see the yacht yourself at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September.
