The newest member of the Holtermann fleet is proof that even fast yachts can be luxurious...
The Holterman X-Treme fleet just got a little bigger. The Dutch shipyard recently delivered the first 78-foot model of this famous and acclaimed line. The X-treme line, which was announced back in 2021, includes five fast and flashy yachts that stand in stark contrast to the cruising that Holtermann has been delivering since 1964. The newcomer follows in the footsteps of the award-winning Lady Fleur, but is smaller and more refined.
Named Miramar, the X-treme 78 Sport is impeccable in terms of speed, style and space. It has a sleeker, more modern profile than its predecessor, but clearly shares the same X-treme DNA. The entire range was created by Bernd Weel and features a "smooth look" that is "unusual yet elegant," according to Holtermann CEO Herman Timmerman. KB Alubouw and Sea Level also helped design the exterior of the 78 Sport.
Built from lightweight aluminium, Miramar X-treme has a deep V hull and twin Volvo-Penta IPS engines which together allow her to reach more than 30 knots at full tilt. By comparison, Lady Fleur's top speed is 15 knots. Miramar is also very easy to handle and extremely quiet in operation, according to the shipyard.
The yacht's 20-foot beam gave the Kitty van der Kamp Design plenty of interior space to play with. The decor combines rich wooden elements handcrafted by Holterman carpenters with modern furniture, elegant lighting and spacious windows. The living spaces are dark and moody, yet light and airy.
The open plan layout is centred around the main deck which is home to a huge saloon, dining room and galley. A staircase will take you to the owner's suite, three double guest rooms and a separate living room, while sliding doors will take you to the aft seating area. Elsewhere outdoors, the foredeck is equipped with a comfortable U-shaped sofa and a large sun lounger, while the bow has another outdoor lounging area and a hydraulic swim platform is equipped with a tender.
The best part? There are more X-treme yachts on the horizon. Holtermann only recently delivered the first X-treme 54 model, but has already started building the second hull. The first X-treme 60 is also in development.
"Based on a proven platform, all kinds of wishes are subject to discussion, from exterior design to interior and engine choices," Timmerman said in a statement. "A hybrid option is also on the table, and we like to innovate with customers by involving them in every step of the process."
It sounds like clients can push X-treme yachts to extremes.
