This X-79 was the first X-Yacht to ever be imported to Australia. Landing in Perth she amassed an amazing race record on SOPS and JOG events before heading to Sydney where her owner continued racing her successfully out of MHYC. X- Rated is one of two X-79's there are in Australia and is already a piece of maritime history. Her current owners have done some major upgrades in the past year and she is ready to once again be successfully races, enjoy casual twilight racing or as a simple family cruiser.

Owner's Comments

We have loved X-Rated - we have enjoyed the twilight racing on Pittwater and day cruising around the bays. Its sad to sell her as she is truly a piece of history - but we have decided to do some longer cruising and will need a little more space
Whoever buys her will have a lot of fun in this X-Yacht classic!
