European Yacht of the Year
The X4⁶ is a versatile fast family cruiser that helps you to make the most out of every moment. Advanced hull construction, a powerful sail plan and a well proportioned cockpit put you at the centre of an engaging sailing experience. We call this "Superior Sailing Pleasure".
Down below, Scandinavian style and craftsmanship create a place where you will always enjoy spending time. The X4⁶ exhibits quality and attention to detail, both inside and out, helping to realise its purpose as an excellent sailing yacht. This is Pure X.
X-Yachts has developed an online web-configurator for each of the Pure X models, enabling you to design your own version of the luxury yacht. Configure your own dreams.
This is the ideal family cruiser, that can also get a bit racey at the weekend - it's fast, stylish and safe.
The hull design of the X4⁶ follows the latest design philosophy which maximises sailing performance. Designed to excel in all wind conditions due to a generous sail plan coupled to a high quality mast and rig, including discontinuous rod rigging as standard.
X4⁶ hulls are built with X-Yachts' advanced technology, including vacuum epoxy infusion, and incorporating X-Yachts' famous steel keel grillage to securely hold the composite lead/iron keel in place for outstanding safety in all conditions.
The deck layout takes a combination of the features from both her siblings; a self-taking jib is standard, with sheet handled by one of the halyard winches, and a mainsheet track is recessed into the cockpit sole with an 8:1 purchase traveller control system. Mainsheets are lead up to winches that are within easy reach of the helmsman.
Large Harken self-tailing winches are standard, and can optionally be electrified along with one of the halyard winches.
Teak comes as standard in the cockpit, on the seats and the sole, and is optional on the sidedeck and coachroof top, as well as on the optional electrical operated bathing platform.
Designed for sailing in comfort and at ease, with a deck recessed track for a selftacking jib. The sheet for the 97% jib is lead back to a halyard winch.
2 optional longitudinal Genoa tracks on top of the coachroof allow the use of a 106% overlapping genoa, maximising the X4⁶'s light wind performance.
The starboard-side cockpit bench houses a dedicated locker which can accommodate a 6 or 8 person liferaft.
In addition to the spacious sail locker in the bow, two cockpit floor hatches aft of the wheels give access to the huge lazarette, where an optional 5.5 kW generator can be installed.
The influence of clean Scandinavian design can be seen throughout the interior of the X4⁶ being both traditional but with a modern appearance. The Danish quality craftsmanship is of a very high standard with finely crafted details, and showcases carpentry at its very best. The wooden veneer will be Nordic Oak as standard, with other options on offer.
The toughened glass coachroof windows flood the interior with natural light. In addition to the large flush skylights, sections of the side windows are also open-able to provide excellent ventilation. Each aft cabin has an open-able portlight in the cockpit and additionally an outboard facing opening in the coaming windows. Combined with the flush skylight, the aft cabins have optimal ventilation, a great benefit in warmer climates.
The port aft cabin can be specified with an optional split berth, which can be easily converted between twin berths and a king sized double berth. Both aft cabins are offered with a high level freeboard shelve with stainless steel railing or a freeboard hung adjustable pipe-berth. Both aft cabins have large double wardrobes.
The X4⁶ comes standard with an ultra-modern common-rail Yanmar diesel engine delivering 57 hp, and can be upgraded to an 80 hp unit. The engine compartment is sound insulated to 'Super Yacht' specification, using a heavy 8mm solid rubber layer, 50mm of sound deadening rockwool and finally covered with a perforated aluminium plating. All openings are sealed to eliminate noise.
The engine is delivered as standard with a 2 blade Flex-O-Fold propeller to minimise drag and maximise sailing performance.
Quarter sawn high quality wooden veneers, lightly sanded and varnished, from Italian suppliers. As standard furniture is built in Nordic Oak offering a light modern look. More traditional teak is also available.
Below samples have a hard wearing top surface of laminate imitating wooden veneers. As an alternative, top surface of genuine wooden veneer (as Bulkhead & Furniture) is also available.
The worktop is made of an advanced composite of natural minerals and pure acrylic polymer which creates a stone-hard, luxurious surface.
Just Fleckless is easy to clean. Each yarn is coated with a newly developed stain guard before processing without compromise to feel or appearance. 85% Polyester, 15% Viscose
Alsace and Nubilux; Extremely easily cleaned. 100% Polyester Microfiber Fabrics has knitted back and velor surface. Microfiber is breathable, durable and abrasion resistant.
In the standard version there are 3 double cabins. Both aft cabins can be supplied with X-Yachts free board hung pipe berths. The owners cabin has an ensuite head compartment with adjacent shower unit as standard. Standard layout features a forward facing navigation station with full length sofa.
A hull with powerful lines, a precision moulded composite T keel with a heavy bulb of lead giving a high degree of stability, enables the X4⁶ to sail fast and point high to the wind.
