Few boats can match the X-Yachts Cruising range when it comes to finding everything you need to sail in safety and luxury anywhere in the world. Built for the high latitudes and some of the most trying oceans conditions you may encounter, they are also sleek and fast. The sail plan has been created specifically for long distance cruising.

The Xc 50 is also easily sailed short-handed, with under-deck halyards led aft to self-tailing winches (including electric primary winch already installed with all other winches pre-wired) and a secure central console. 

At first glance, this magnificent vessel, which we first encountered docked at Whangarei Marina, revealed herself to be nothing short of a head-turner. Gleaming with her just-polished gelcoat and multitude of stainless steel deck fittings (even the anchor controls are stainless steel, as are all the winches..), reinforced glass wind shield, strong davits and top quality running rigging tidily coiled or invisible, quite simply looked like the ultimate luxury yacht. 

However, this Xc 50 is not just beautiful to behold, she hides, beneath her graceful lines the strength and qualities of a very serious extreme explorer. This is for this reason that this French family with two young children decided on this model after years of research and experience as professional sailors. This was for many reasons the best boat for their planned journey, which took them from France to the antipodes over 27,000 nautical miles, across some of the wildest oceans of the world,  deep into the 40's and 50's latitudes, across the Atlantic, the windy canals of Patagonia, into the Pacific and across to New Zealand over a two year period. 

One of the most interesting features of the X-Cruising model is the reinforced structure of the boat, which is built around a heavy galvanized steel frame on which the keel is directly bolted (unlike standard boats which attach it to a simple keel reinforcement). The forces exerted by the keel are therefore no longer distributed over a small area of the hull (a few square decimetres) but over a structure of several 10 square metres, itself surrounded by the hull. The mast and standing rigging are also directly attached to this steel structure. Unlike other boats where the mast is held by the rigging attached to the hull reinforcements, the cap shrouds are attached to the frame and only pass through the living structures (deck). X-Yachts' own system offers very high rigidity to the rigging and greater safety.

"Gaia" is a heavier boat than the production boats, but its inertia in the formed seas is precisely what is needed for the type of exploration. It is heavier, but it is not slow. She doesn't surf for long, but you don't risk pitch-poling while surfing uncontrollably. She has no bad habits. She doesn't slam. It combines all the modern features of a boat designed in a spirit of tranquility, while respecting the very important rules of stability, safety and durability on the ocean, which unfortunately is becoming increasingly difficult to find in today's shipbuilding industry. Unlike the Xp models, which put more emphasis on a lighter and more powerful sailboat, the Xc is really designed to conquer the far reaches of the ocean.

The keel, sturdy and with a ballast ratio appropriate to cruising, is short enough at 2.35m  deep to allow you to tuck into lagoons, while her hull shape provides very good pointing ability and exceptional handling, which is further enhanced by her bow thruster should you need to manoeuvre into a tight marina berth.

Together this family experienced some adventures that few can dream about, and this boat, as she is now, fully quipped and ready to continue on her way, is your chance to inherit not just the outstanding design and building skills of the X-Yacht team, but also the numerous upgrades and little but significant modifications which the owners made to further improve the design around their need for a boat that could be single handed, controlled no matter what the weather Gods threw at them, anchored in some of the most trying terrain in the world, safe and comfortable for their family no matter where they were, independent and able to run for long periods in complete autonomy, equipped with everything you could possible need to step aboard today and make her your home, as well as drop the lines and sail anywhere in the world at a moment's notice.

For more info please check our Youtube Channel (Nautilus Yacht Management). We have made two videos of this beautiful boat: The Voyage of 'Gaia'. 27,000 nautical miles from France to New Zealand via Patagonia, which will give you an idea of the incredible journey they have just completed, and a second video which is more focused around the boat and her presentation as she is today, immaculate and waiting for you. 

It is hard to believe that this extraordinary boat has so many miles beneath her keel and was the home of this family for over 2 years.. We simply could not fault her. 

Located at Whangarei Marina, amongst other cruising families from the all over the world, 'Gaia' and her owners are on board and available with a little notice to meet you and show you through the boat.
