California 52 XT

Outspoken style with refined fresh and modernistic lines while maintaining a classic touch. User-friendliness was a clear focus in the design progress which resulted in a smart and well thought-out layout and related detailing.

Waterdream’s Vripack-designed yacht, the California 52, made its international debut at the World Yacht Trophies in Cannes in July 2020, where it scoped the Best Innovation Award. Only a few months later, Prince Bernhard van Oranje, founder of Waterdream, is presenting a very special edition of the California 52.

His brand mission is to deliver high quality, sustainable, practical and timeless designs. Again, this Waterdream model hails from Dutch design studio Vripack, whose holistic vision is underpinned by strong naval architecture.

[The 52 XT] is a super classy edition to our California 52 range. The special two-tone paint from the exclusive BMW M8, with color codes that I received from Adrian van Hooydonk, makes it even more special. This new version of the California 52 has both a garage and a multifunctional yacht platform, so you can bring all the toys you need.
