Milan-based design studio Federico Fiorentino and Lombard manufacturer of high-speed RIBs SACS, represented by the Bespoke Operation Division, have collaborated to create a concept design codenamed X-80 or, as it has already been dubbed, Super RIB.
The 24-meter X-80 is described as «an absolutely luxurious racing boat», distinguished by «sleek aerodynamic silhouette» and a number of features that are rather characteristic of superyachts.
«SACS and Fiorentino are guided by the same basic principles: efficiency, style, innovation, comfort and safety for those who want to experience the pleasures of the sea without being constrained»," say Federico Fiorentino Yacht Design.
The perimeter of the concept is surrounded by pontoon tanks, filled with foam, to reduce the impact of both the hull of the RIB and the vessel to which it is moored.
The fast boat turns out to be surprisingly spacious. The X-80's 60 square metre deck space boasts a sun deck and large swim platform.
A 25sqm full-width amidships master suite, a twin forward guest stateroom and a crew stateroom in the forepeak complete the layout.
This is not the first time Federico Fiorentino has worked with SACS. The previous time Federico Fiorentino Yacht Design was involved in the creation of the Rebel line of RIBs.
The X-80 has a power potential of up to 5000 hp, depending on the configuration of the engines: two or three.
