When designing the new X4⁹ I wanted to combine the sleek, low profile lines of the new X range with luxurious high spec interiors to create a modern performance cruiser yacht that will sail beautifully as well as be a joy to live aboard.

May 2018 was the sunniest month for recorded weather in Denmark. Blue Vortex, a new X49, was launched into this heat wave in the middle of May.
Ahead of us lay 2,600 nautical miles of adventures in other kinds of waves; cold waves, wet waves & one huge, unexpected wave.
The X4⁹ utilises vacuum infused epoxy lamination, giving the ability to save weight. This is paramount to increase the weight of the lead keel bulb, lowering the centre of gravity, assisting the hull to drive through the waves. This is key to delivering a stiff yacht without the keel draft being extreme, enabling the X4⁹ to moor in shallower waters.
The hull is available in a number of colourways and is oven baked, enabling the option of dark topsides without the risk of surface deformities.
The hull topsides include six large portlights, with a further 8 openable coachroof portlights on deck for optimum light and ventilation. In addition to this the forward face of coachroof is fitted with curved toughened glass, maximising interior light. All of these combined make below deck feel light, airy and spacious.
For when you are at anchor, there is a large electrical operated bathing transom door, which allows easy access to the water, and a dinghy garage for storing up to a 2.7 m inflatable.
Designed for sailing in comfort and at ease, with a deck recessed track for a selftacking Genoa, single Genoa sheet led to a cockpit winch
2 optional longitudinal Genoa tracks on top of the coachroof allow for effective trimming of the 106% overlapping Genoa.
The cockpit layout can also be customised to include a removable teak table with hinged leaves.
The X4⁹ comes with a variety of pedestal and instrument options to ensure a fully customisable fit-out of navigation instruments.
As you step below deck you will notice the spacious entrance with laminated raw teak steps, to prevent slipping, and elegant laminated teak handrails. The X4⁹ will welcome you with lots of new ideas, light and ventilation. There are a number of layout options available, all beautifully presented in a modern and internationally recognisable style and quality.
Standard Oak veneers in a Nordic style or with an option for teak, white vinyl paneling, teak laminate floor boards, bright white walled bathrooms with teak gratings and Corian worktops with integrated Corian sinks (Q Pack).
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
