The XPD 88 is a modern reinterpretation of explorer yachts, designed with simplicity and elegance for a very specific goal: to travel. Its strong personality was born from the idea of offering guests a boat that allows them to enjoy the sea and fully experience slow-cruising, enjoy every moment spent on board thanks to a layout that is envied by even bigger units.
XPD88 is a yacht designed by Studio Sculli, a famous studio of naval architects in La Spezia. The key characteristic of this boat is its structure that allows the classification as a 23.99-metre boat although the length overall is equal to 28,4 meters. The owner will have the space and comfort of a bigger boat but much lower management and registration costs as it is classified as a yacht below 24 meters.
Mauro Sculli is a naval architect who started his career in the 90s. Since then he has collaborated with many shipyards around the world, building several number of boats. He is knowledgeable, innovative and non-conformist designer; these characteristics convinced his friend Aldo Manna and the Antonini brothers to undertake this new and fascinating adventure together with him and his collaborator, the designer Matteo Covini.
The project can be built in three different propulsion solutions. A hybrid propulsion is also proposed for a nature-friendly cruise that encourages environmental sustainability and at the same time provides long-term economic benefits.
