The exterior design, naval architecture and the multidisciplinary concept engineering of this project has been developed by Meccano Engineering over a period of four months, starting from a blank piece of paper. The 65-metre Explorer Yacht takes its inspiration from the natural world, featuring a design with “strong supply vessel characteristics”.
Project Orca is developed on four decks plus a tank-top deck and owners can choose from various deck layouts. The standard version has an open main deck in the stern for storing more tenders and toys as well as a touch & go helipad. Alternatively, this area can feature an infinity pool overlooking the transom or have a raised helipad with a pool and spa zone inside.
On the lower deck aft is a large garage that can hold two large tenders or several jet skis and other water toys. The guest accommodation, comprising two VIP suites and two cabins, is located forward on the same deck level and is served by the main staircase and an elevator that connects with all deck levels up to the sun deck. The crew accommodation is towards the bow.
The main deck interior hosts the guest area with a large main salon, dining room and another spacious VIP suite forward. On the portside are the galley and crew services.
Access to the mooring deck in the forepeak is via side companionways on the main deck. This area, covered for safety reasons in rough seas, accentuates the height of the imposing bow.
The Owner deck features the owner’s apartment with his-and-her bathroom, walk-in closets, an office and a large gym / massage area. The suite overlooks the open aft deck that serves as a private terrace. The captain’s cabin and one additional crew cabin are located behind the wheelhouse.
The large sun deck is equipped with full dining facilities, bar and sunbathing areas with elevator access for guests and separate stairs for crew.
Powered by twin CAT 3512 engines (1350kW @ 1600 rpm), Project Orca is expected to have a range approximately 5,000 miles at a cruising speed of 12 knots.

This is the name of the very original project: a catamaran with a strong personality and a sleek, aggressive profile. But behind the lines, it offers a design philosophy focused mainly on high technology and respect for the environment.
“The project emphasizes the blending of generous and slender lines, – as Stefano Reggente of Meccano Engineering confirms – expressing the concept that simplicity and harmony are in the balance of lines and shapes. This design gives the X-One the look and feel of a unique product, fresh and original.”
The size of the catamaran – length of 59 meters and width of 26 meters – offer a huge living area with versatile and generous interior and exterior spaces. The 1400 square meters of the main deck are for the guest suites, featuring balconies, saloons and every kind of comfort. Amenities will include a spacious lounge area between the hulls offering a unique view on the sea. The owner deck is particularly elegant and luxurious, with a private pool occupying an entire deck and a large outdoor area.
With its futuristic and modern design, X-One is a real revolution and innovation in the catamaran world.
