We are proud to announce that Forbes Horton Yachts has been selected as the exclusive X-Yachts dealer for the Mid-Atlantic. We are thrilled to represent such an esteemed line of boats. X-Yachts are built on a deep relation to and understanding of performance, design and the demands of the sea. While the styling may be contemporary, the joinery skills employed in constructing the yachts have been handed down through the generations. The satisfaction felt when steering an X-Yacht is the result of many choices taken throughout the design process to ensure that the yacht remains naturally balanced. These boats are painstakingly prepared prior to sale, maintaining not only the standard of the fleet but also high residuals for owners. An X-Yachts value is preserved long after delivery and the turnover rate for brokerage offerings is almost nonexistent. Owners simply love their boats. Step aboard an X-Yachts and sailing will never be the same.
