New X-95 concept yacht from Holterman Shipyard

Dutch semi-custom yacht builder Holterman has announced an addition to its Xtreme range of yachts.

The new yacht – the X-95 – is a bridge between the semi-custom sub-24-metre Xtremes and the class-built X-105.

The all-aluminium 29m yacht is predicted to travel at 22 to 24 knots, with a design feature that will enable the yacht to carry one of the largest tenders in its size bracket, a six-metre tender in an enclosed garage.

“We’ve been working together for many years, from when we started the Xtreme line with the X-105,” says designer Bernd Weel, founder of the Bernd Weel Design studio. “As a designer, I am always dreaming of the perfect yacht, and so is Holterman.”

And he said there was an obvious gap in the line-up at around 29m (95ft), between the X-105 and the X-78 models, and it was here that the idea for the X-95 emerged.

“We thought it would be nice, instead of having a client come to us, if we developed it together,” Bernd continued.

“Applying all our experience of developing the Xtreme series, adding in all the client feedback that I and especially Holterman has gathered over the years – because the shipyard always tries to listen to clients and yacht owners to see what they are seeking – and capitalising on the yard’s 60 years of boatbuilding prowess to create something really cool, the perfect 95-footer.”

The culmination of everything we have done and everything we have learnt over six decades of building exceptional yachts.

The resulting concept will be built to Class rather than the recreational CE mark.

One of the main focuses with the yacht was to create an exterior space for outdoor living, but at the same time maximising interior space for a full five-cabin layout.

The yacht has also been optimised for potential charter with the integration of captain and crew paramount in the design.

Other features will include an owner’s suite forward on the main deck that will lead out to a private owner terrace on the bow, a raised pilothouse design accessed via steps from the saloon, plus an expansive sundeck that can be fitted out with a spa pool.

Guest accommodation on the lower deck will comprise four ensuite cabins.

A double shaft engine setup will power the X-95 for performance, and for maximum manoeuvrability bow and stern thrusters are installed.

The model will also be future-proofed with an exhaust treatment system that meets IMO Tier III standards.

Range is predicted to be in the region of 1,800 nautical miles at a mid-cruise of around 15 knots.

“The X-95 is the big sister to the X-78 and the little sister to the X-105, but it needs to have it all, so we have included all the features of a superyacht in a 29m, fast displacement aluminium design,” said Robbert Holterman, CEO at Holterman Shipyard.

“It really is the culmination of everything we have done and everything we have learnt over six decades of building exceptional yachts.”
