A Dream Coming to Life…
The original plan to travel to Denmark at the end of March 2020 to carry out the handover of this brand new X43 was not to be… Despite her being full rigged and ready to go, it quickly became apparent that collecting a yacht from Denmark was not going to be as logistically easy as in 2019.
Instead, she was de-rigged, loaded to road transport, and brought back to Hamble for local commissioning. During the period of lock-down, she was slowly commissioned, and prepared until such times we could have her launched and rigged.
After a day of systems handover, and test sailing, her proud new owners are delighted to be day sailing from Hamble, and getting to know their new yacht in these perfect sailing conditions.
From all of us at X-Yachts Great Britain, we wish Richard & Anne all the best aboard “XETA“.
All of our new build 2020 X-Yachts remain on time from the factory, as production in Denmark was not stopped, therefore the next British owners have the chance follow this delivery procedure, and get sailing as soon as possible in 2020!
We are so pleased to be out sailing at the end of May. When lockdown started, we thought it would take months. Big thanks to the team at X-Yachts for getting the boat from Denmark, commissioning her, and ready for the first day lockdown was eased, and we can go sailing.
