Xc 35


The Xc 35, nominated for “European Yacht of the Year 2015” award in the “Luxury Cruiser” category and winner of '31ft-40ft' Category in Sail Magazine's 'Boat of the Year 2015' Awards, joins the world renowned Xcruising range.

Cruising in ultimate comfort

The Xc 35 is designed to offer a smoother voyage than typical performance cruisers, by having a relatively heavier displacement and deeper hull sections. These deeper V-shaped hull sections help the Xc models give a more comfortable motion in large waves, especially when heading upwind under sail or engine.

Xcruising qualities

The Xc 35 is offered with teak on the side decks; applied with vacuum technology to ensure quality and sustained longevity.

The optional stainless steel A-frame hides and protects the anchor as well as offers an efficient position where to fly the downwind asymmetrics from.

The foredeck conceals a watertight anchor locker, where an optional electrical anchor winch can be fitted.

Maximum ventilation and light through to the interior is possible with openable chrome polished aluminium framed portlights, and frameless flush mounted deck skylights. The X style hull portlights also offer a view from the interior.

Nothing spared

The Xc 35 offers true X-Yachts sailing qualities; the standard fittings, systems and detailing offered by X-Yachts truly set them apart from the competition.

Sandwich hull & deck, steel keel girder, deep CFG keel, recessed trough hull fittings, folding propeller, keel stepped tapered mast section, discontinuous rod rigging and a powerful backstay tension system just to mention a few.

Married with these performance features are the renowned Xcruising features, such as coach roof located mainsheet enabling full cockpit tent coverage, double wheel steering, standard teak decks in the cockpit and bathing platform, 6 large self-tailing winches, large deep cockpit lockers through starboard and aft lockers, large self-draining locker for multiple gas bottles, under deck mainsheet system to aft-most cockpit winch (X-Yachts main sheet system).

The extra-large transom door with integrated hinged stainless steel bathing ladder conceals the 6 person liferaft compartment and allows for easy deployment.

Well proportioned sail plan

Designed and developed for cruising in comfort, the Xc 35 takes many of the qualities of the performance X-Yachts such as rod rigging and fully encapsulated keels, but also has many features that make it ideal for offshore passage making:

  • A powerful engine in a well insulated compartment, with a 2-bladed folding propeller
  • Large fuel and fresh water tank, strategically located low and central in the yacht for optimum weight distribution
  • An immensely strong steel hull girder frame, taking the loads from the keel as well as from the keel stepped mast
  • Deeper hull sections provide a greater interior volume, giving more storage and space for essential cruising equipment, a feature which also provides smoother sailing in all weathers.

The Xcruising range is more than having great cruising qualities, 35 years of performance yacht experience and racing heritage are not lost on the Xc 35. A flexible yet powerful sail plan, excellent stability and easy handling make short work of long passages, giving you more time to explore.


Under deck, the Xc 35 sports a traditional, functional interior, crafted in hand selected technical teak, varnished to a satin finish. The galley Corian table top, the cushions and mattresses, and the high specification of standard technical equipment all mirror X-Yachts’ aim of delivering a premium product. The choice of the discerning cruising sailor.
