Two weeks ago, two of the founders of X-Yachts – Lars Jeppesen & Birger Hansen – went to the UK to pick up the X-79 no 1.
Approximately forty years ago, the development process of the X-79 started for the three owners, Niels & Lars Jeppesen and Birger Hansen. This was the beginning of a success story. Almost 500 X-79s were built and sold to clients around Europe.
The X-79 is a sandwich construction of hand-laid-up fibre glass and is characteristic for its finish quality. The boat soon became leading for modern boat design of the eighties because of its magnificent sailing qualities – no matter if the wind conditions were light or extremely hard.
The X-79 no 1 will now be fully prepared for her 40 years anniversary in 2019.
