Aimed at the discerning sailor, the X range is designed to meet the demands of sailors who want to enjoy sailing in a wide verity of conditions as well as have all the luxury you would expect from the clean, timeless Danish style, synonymous with X-Yachts.
The first X4 and X6 were launched in the Summer of 2016 and since then have proved to have exceptional sailing abilities as having a spacious airy interior oozes style and luxury whilst also being functionally designed to work either at sea or in harbor.
The new ‘X’ range consists of the X4, X6 and X8, letting the owner enjoy the best of both worlds - a “modern/sexy” design with high levels of comfort.
The design philosophy was very clear from the outset - like all our ranges, we place a huge emphasis on giving the owner a superb and comfortable sailing experience, on a yacht that is easy to handle by all the crew.
These models are not designed to win races, which means no ORC / IRC handicap rules need to be met. This allows for more room to be innovative and thus we have designed hull lines that are more ‘powerful’, by widening the bow and stern sections. These changes can hinder performance racing on a windward / leeward racecourse, but improves sailing performance whilst reaching while cruising. Furthermore the wider sections, allow for a bigger interior space and more spacious owner’s cabin.
The models will only incorporate the best build technologies. An example is the use of vacuum infusion epoxy sandwich lamination technology with local carbon reinforcements in the hull. Each hull is crafted by a laminating team that have become the biggest producers of high tech hulls in the last four years, with almost 300 built over in this period.
Epoxy not only makes an ultimately stronger construction, but also gives the added advantage, that the hull topsides will remain undistorted, for a much longer period, seeing less shrinking.
X-Yachts will once again introduce a range of head turning yachts into the market and lead the way for connoisseurs who appreciate the same fundamental philosophy: Enjoying pure sailing pleasure.
