The X-80 is designed to operate as a luxury chase boat for larger superyachts and is designed with foam pontoons surrounding the vessel to reduce the effects of impacts on the RIB itself and the mothership.

Designed for outdoor living as a stand-alone day boat or mothership escape craft to explore shallower waters, the X-80features 60-square-metres worth of deck space with built-in sunbed and large swim platform for watersports activities. Inside, there is space for five persons in a full-beam master suite, a twin guest cabin and a crew cabin in the forepeak.

Irrespective of the selected propulsion system, the X-80 will benefit from the handling and seagoing characteristics all SACS craft are known for.
