The development of the new XR is still at an early stage, but the vision and ambition are clear: The XR will be a winner, and therefore the X-Yachts in-house design team partnered up with some of the world’s most experienced companies and racers to reach that goal!
The partners will be working closely with the X-Yachts design team, and together they will design and build a race boat with winning potential for all major championships and regattas in ORC and potentially IRC.
The illustrations below show one of the CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) runs of the first XR hull. Each hull test consists of numerous variants, that in small increments on various parameters, evolved into the optimal performance over a large matrix of hull speeds and heel angles.
The XR design team is fully engaged in the process, and we will be presenting more information at the beginning of the new year.
