Naval architect Stefano Pastrovich has designed a luxury superyacht with the modular construction flexibility of a cruise liner.
X-Expedition is a next-generation safe haven Protected Ship that will feature Wärtsila hybrid propulsion for a whole new level of experiential travel.
Pastrovich, the 47-year-old Italian naval architect and designer, commented: “We’ve designed a new generation of superyachts and small cruise ships for a new generation of luxury-segment explorers.
“Our X-Expedition is a Protected Ship in a class of its own: a magical safe haven from which to enjoy the world’s most beautiful landscapes in total safety, simultaneously immersing you in an extraordinary world of its own that becomes part of its surroundings, like an island.”
“Right from the first sketch, we based the design on integrating different construction techniques and leveraging the efficient modular approach of the cruise industry, while combining it with the high-end techniques typical of superyachts. This enables us to achieve efficient cost management and construction times without sacrificing luxury construction detail.”
