Fast Displacement XL-300 Superyacht Concept Ready for Build: Milanese designer Federico Fiorentino has joined forces with Van Oossanen Naval Architects for a new 47.5-meter superyacht concept named the Fast Displacement XL-300 Sport. The new concept, which has already been tested and is ready for build, is aimed at the American superyacht market, according to Neils Moerke of Van Oossanen.
The yacht would incorporate the signature Van Oossanen hull form and feature a total interior volume of less than 300GT and is a follow-up to the 61-meter Fast Displacement XL-500 that was designed in collaboration with Cor D Rover and revealed at the 206 Monaco Yacht Show. Typically, yachts of that size are closer to 500 gross tons. The XL-300 should top out at 29 knows and reach 3,500 nautical miles at 12 knots on a pair of twin 2,600-hp MTU 16V2000 M96 diesel engines. A pair of Seakeeper M35 stabilizers with active interceptors will ensure a smooth cruising experience.
The XL in the name refers to the great flexibility in length beneath desirable gross-tonnage levels, which translates to more space, lower operational costs and less arduous regulations. Perry van Oossanen notes that the fast displacement form allows the creation of the longest yachts even within the 200, 300 or 500GT boundaries.
Florentino created an aggressive exterior attitude to complement the power of the hull design and strove for smooth lines to complement the alfresco atmosphere, such as the aft deck infinity pool. Cristiano Gatto has been approach for the interior décor.
Accommodation for ten guests will be spit across five staterooms, including a main deck owners cabin and three doubles and a twin cabin below decks. The crew quarters, situated in the bow, will accommodate six people in three en-suite cabins.
Key features include a superyacht helipad on the foredeck and a side-loading garage large enough to house two jet skis ad a 6.25-meter tender. Van Oossanen adds that the design could be built from an aluminum hull and superstructure to LY3, RINA or ABS standards. Shipyard selection is up to the buyer.
