X-Yachts are built on a deep relation to and understanding of performance, design and the demands of the sea.
X-Yachts introduces a brand new range, X. Designed to complement both the existing two ranges, Xperformance (Xp) and Xcruising (Xc), X models will offer both excellent sailing capabilities and a wide, spacious interior. This range will be for the discerning sailor no longer wanting to race but enjoys cruising at speed. They will include modern, innovative design features above and below deck, the latest build technologies and the use of exceptionally high quality materials. By introducing this range, X-Yachts aims to continue sharing the passion for modern “yachting”.
With the announcement of the X6 project back in January 2013, we are almost complete and the first two X6s will be launched in early to mid-summer 2016, closely followed by the X4.
Combining a 35-year heritage of performance yacht design and the very latest in contemporary yacht design and build technology, the Xp range is the fourth generation of performance yachts by X-Yachts. Launched in 2011 to great acclaim, it now includes the Xp 33, Xp 38, Xp 44, Xp 50 and Xp 55. Each is designed to raise the bar for production cruiser-racer yachts in improved build quality, attention to detail, innovation, sailing experience and comfort – and since their launch have continued the X-Yachts tradition of success on the race course, most recently winning their division overall at the ORC Worlds.
Stability is key, with each yacht designed to carry an increased proportion of its weight in the deep bulb. A significantly improved ballast to weight ratio, thanks to a hi-tech epoxy vacuum infusion build process with localised use of carbon, also contributes to an enjoyable and responsive sailing experience.
The Xc range was launched in 2008 with the Xc 45, which was named European Yacht of the Year, an honour her smaller sister the Xc 38 also held. Six years on, 250 Xc yachts have been delivered and around one million nautical miles sailed. Today the Xcruising line also encompasses the Xc 42, Xc 50 and Xc 55, plus the latest addition to the range – the Xc 35, which debuted last year. New modifications for 2015 include larger bathing platforms and hull portlights. All Xc models are based on the same principles of moderate hull shapes with increased displacement to allow for larger engines, batteries, tanks and anchoring gear. The Xc yachts also share deep sections, and a forward ‘V’ shape to minimise slamming and make for a comforatable motion when going through waves, either under power or sail. Designed for long-distance passages, the Xcruising line features extensive teak decking, and a wide choice of windscreen, sprayhood and bimini options.
