The Xi Yacht may not look like a traditional yacht, but it still has an air of luxury to it that simply makes one think of it as a futuristic version one. As though inspired by the shape of a sting ray, it is wide and shallow-looking -- more sporty than a typical yacht as well.

Conceived by Jan Gielens of Aguila Designs, the Xi Yacht boasts a remarkable series of aero and hydrodynamic principles in order to obtain maximum craft stabilization. It is able to maneuver powerfully and agilely while providing its riders protection from all types of weather conditions. Combining function with form, the Xi Yacht combines capabilities with sleek and contemporary good looks.
