Being a modem yard for series production yachts, and having actually lead the market for performance cruisers since the mid 80s, X-Yachts must set new standards with the launch of every new model. The introduction of the X-612 in 1995 and the X-482 in 1997 brought production boat building to new levels in terms of quality, function, performance and design. The X-562 is a natural continuation of this trend and will become yet another benchmark set by X-Yachts. The elements that lead to these victories are all encapsulated in the X-562: careful hull and foil design, high stability - largely as a result of a low CG bulb keel and careful placement of tanks and heavy equipment - an efficient and well balanced sail plan, superior engineering (where both ABS guidelines and CE norms are followed) and well proven and tested high-tech construction. The faster a yacht sails, the harder it hits things, be it big waves going upwind or even the ground (when you least expect it). A fast yacht can also inspire you to sail with the "throttle" down. It is therefore imperative that such a yacht be built with a greater attention to strength and resilience than an ordinary cruiser. One of the critical factors separating X-Yachts from the rest is the construction of the inner support for keel and rig loads. A massive steel girder is incorporated into the yacht during construction. This girder takes the high standing rigging tension and consequent mast step pressure required to support and control the sail plan properly. Additionally, the girder forms a solid connection for the keel. There are many X-Yacht owners worldwide who are greatly relieved that such sound engineering has turned potential disaster into a minor inconvenience. The interior is built by traditional woodworking craftsmen using the most up-to-date production facilities and techniques. CAD-CAM cutting machines aid prefabrication of all flat bulkheads and panels, and sophisticated timber lamination moulds allow for the complex curves and detailed joinery which go to create the luxurious and elegant interior. The nerve center of the yacht - the navigation station - is to starboard. Ample space is provided for installation of additional electronics. DC and AC distribution panels are by Mastervolt (Holland). The saloon table is surrounded by a large "L" shaped sofa outboard and three removable chairs midships. These can be fixed in position. The teak veneer used for the bulkheads and locker doors is of the very highest grade, hand picked and color - grain matched for each individual yacht. The contoured companionway steps are laminated and left unvarnished to enhance the natural non-slip qualities of the teak The Yanmar 100 hp Main engine delivers ample power, quietly and smoothly. Great attention has been paid to the sound insulation, drive train and engine mountings to ensure smooth running. A dedicated area aft of the main engine is provided for the generator. There is also space for additional pumps and machinery such as an air conditioner or a watermaker. In the saloon, the two arm chairs to port are designed for maximum comfort. Between these chairs is a cabinet for a hidden television which mounts on an electrically raised and lowered platform. The bathrooms as well as the galley counter tops are made from moulded High Tech Granite, used in this application for the first time. This offers an easy-to-clean, highly durable and temperature resistant surface in a color of the owner's choice. The owner's stateroom is furnished with a king sized berth, ventilated hanging lockers, vanity and en suite head and shower. The symmetrical aft cabins each have large double berths, with the option of mounting hinged pipecots at the freeboard. Each has an en suite head and shower, all finished with the same High Tech Granite counter tops and integrated sink units. The high-gloss varnished teak cockpit table is mounted on top of an insulated GRP central box that forms an ice chest for cool drinks. Sitting on two removable "U" shaped stainless steel legs, the table can be completely put away in a matter of minutes. The large deck-recessed sprayhood folds neatly into a self draining deck housing. A tonneau cover zips over the sprayhood when stowed to provide a neat finish and to protect the canvas. Captive washboards slide down neatly into a special housing beneath the companionway entrance. This is a significant safety feature and an added convenience. In each side of the cockpit coaming aft of the helm are recessed panels protected by transparent plexiglas doors housing on one side the engine control panel (with gauges, visual and acoustic alarms), and on the other, a control panel for on-deck DC equipment such as electric winches, anchor windlass, optional bow thruster, nav lights, cockpit speakers and transom garage door. Every deck and cockpit locker lid is built using a double mould to give the highest possible level of surface finish, both inside and out. While this delivers a very special finish, the principal reason for this is more mundane. By making the inside of the locker lid in a mould it is possible to recess and secure the rubber seals, ensuring a secure, effective and robust water seal. For safety and convenience each lid is supported when open by a gas strut. The mainsheet traveler is recessed into the cockpit seats just forward of the wheels, and is also curved to allow for easy passage fore and aft. Additionally, the high-load ball bearing mainsheet traveler car has been custom built with an incorporated plunger system to allow the traveler to be locked centrally when cruising, or off to one side when in port. In race mode, the traveler is powerful and easy to operate. Located immediately under the cockpit sole, the top of the rudder shaft and bearing is accessible through a hatch. This hatch also gives access to the large gas bottle stored in a self draining GRP locker. Forward of the mast and protected by a crash bar, the Dorados assist with ventilation for the owner's head and shower compartment. The vang, babystay and double permanent backstay are all controlled through a remote Navtec hydraulic panel mounted in the cockpit. The standard electric capstan windlass handles the 30 Kg Bruce anchor with ease. X-Yachts' vision when creating the X-562 was of a truly luxurious yacht with a rich yet contemporary interior. The use of numerous moulds in the production process has allowed the designers of the X-562 to achieve this and much more. Every single detail is designed and built for extreme use and long life. Self-aligning needle rudder bearings ensure minimum resistance with minimum maintenance. The entire steering system follows the same criteria, as well as deck hardware and interior fittings, all chosen with the greatest of care.
