EXTRA Yachts, brand of ISA Yachts, launches the new motor catamaran line announcing the VILLA X30 meter project.
Exteriors and interiors are by the Dutch firm Phathom.
The Extra VILLA offers the unrivalled livability of a home combining innovative architectural features in an open plan, multi-level layout, with the efficiency of a catamaran platform. Casual living was the mindset behind this project providing owners and guests with a more laid back experience and a new definition of enjoyment on the water.
X30 VILLA marks the expansion of Extra into the catamaran market. A dynamic synergy where automotive meets architecture. The exterior styling unmistakably imbues Extra Yacht’s DNA with its notable usage of panoramic glass, large social areas, and open concept stern facilitating easier sea access.
This new catamaran, with a quieter electric motorisation, takes advantage of a hybrid propulsion system that significantly reduces C02 emissions. Consumption efficiency is augmented by glass impregnated solar cells that produce additional energy for on-board utilities. Sustainable or natural materials such as re-purposed fibres, sustainably assessed paints and plasters, alternative leathers and reclaimed woods will be considered without compromising quality or finish.
X30 VILLA is endowed with a beamy aft cockpit that can be configured in any manner with loose furniture.
In addition, this area is protected by a glass balustrade so as to not impede the view. The multifunctional high/low platform supports a 5+ metre tender and all the water toys. Also, it can be aligned with the swim platforms to create a much larger beach area. The current layout offers VIP cabins with direct access to the transom in order to enjoy the sea without having to traverse the interior. VILLA continues on the Extra’s beach club approach of facilitating aft-ward views with direct connection to the sea.
X30 VILLA boasts a main deck with extra high ceilings and large panoramic windows intended to maximize outdoor views while letting natural sunlight indoors. The layout is subdivided into smaller convivial multi-level zones to break up the space.
One option includes the main salon, library nook, bar and galley casually flowing into each other as part of the same open plan area overlooked by the raised wheelhouse and observatory. Other proposals show the galley below deck or a separate kitchen on the main deck.
Creative architectural detailing, like the aft salon ceiling outstretching to the exterior, conveys a sense of a much larger social area when the doors are open. To further amplify the indoor feel of the aft cockpit, loose furnishings and accessories were chosen.
