The X6 represents the first in a new development of performance cruising yachts. The twin-rudder X6 will utilise the same hi-tech construction techniques as X-Yachts adopted to build their latest generation Xp racer-cruisers.
The baby sister in the Xc family has been born, and is the newest member of the highly praised and awarded long distance Xcruising range.
“The Xc 38 does everything – from using the space to the premium (the inside is capacious throughout) to build and finish quality, to sailing performance – exceptionally well. The Xc 38 defines ‘luxury cruiser’ in a very manageable size.”
The second yacht in the Xcruising range, the Xc 42 offers no-compromise comfort and impressive pace combined with ease of handling.
"This is an impressive, genuine
long-distance passagemaker ...
seasoned sailors ... looking to
hang up their racingboats and sail
with wives and families, need look no further."
“The Xc 50 is a thoroughbred sailboat – sensible, but not too much.”
Varen, June 2010
Fast, fun, and user-friendly, the Xp 33 is designed to give thrilling sailing, straight off the dock. Being the smallest yacht in the Xperformance line, she features a retractable bowsprit.
"She is exactly as we hoped for, stiff, fast and very easy to manage. She felt very slippery, accelerated quickly out of tacks and was just a delight to steer and sail".
“Sailed beautifully, steered beautifully, everything was executed very, very well”
Sailing World's Boat of the Year Judge, Mark Schrader, 2014
“A dreamboat doesn’t have to remain a distant dream.”
"Dreams come alive! An Xp 55 has everything a sailor wants. It's beautiful, seaworthy and well decorated in a tasteful style"
Troels Lykke, Minbaad
The 65 is the result of combining the conceptual ideas behind the X-55 and the IMX 70. The clean, uncluttered deck layout mirrors X-Yachts philosophy: simplicity and functionality, with a modern yet classic styling. Comfort in style combined with world class quality.
The X-35 is an exciting yacht to race around the buoys, no matter what the conditions. With the open transom, large working cockpit, full width steering wheel and all control lines on hand at both sides, she delivers smiles all round.
She sports the latest in fast hull and appendage design; a non overlapping headsail configuration; double spreader, carbon mast and boom from one of Europe’s leading suppliers; large diameter carbon wheel; all trimlines leading to both sides of the coach roof; and a backstay adjustment run via the Magic Wheel.
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.
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.
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.
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:
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.
The Xc 35 comes with a 2-cabin interior layout for a really spacious feel, including a luxurious heads with integral shower.
