Superior Sailing Pleasure

The X56 is a fifty-six-foot performance cruising yacht, designed with serious cruising in mind; it could be crossing the Atlantic, or exploring beautiful Mediterranean islands. The X56 joins the hugely successful and critically acclaimed Pure X Range and is now the largest yacht in the range.

The design philosophy was very clear from the outset - like all our luxury yachts, 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.

The first X56 were launched in November 2020 and we celebrated her world premiere in January 2021 in Haderslev, Denmark.

X-Yachts has developed an online web-configurator for each of the Pure X models, enabling you to design your own version of the sailing yacht. Configure your own dreams.

Light, strong and stiff

Light, strong and stiff

With the introduction of the X-65 in 2007, X-Yachts started to infuse hulls for performance yachts utilising epoxy resin. Epoxy infusion construction offers fantastic control over the laminate allowing it to be optimised to maximise strength and stiffness, whilst saving weight.

In the X56 all weight saved, is used to increase the yacht’s stability, enabling the crew to have a more relaxed time and to feel safer and more comfortable. The fact, that the hull is cured, baked at high temperatures for almost 24 hours, not only optimises the hull material properties, but also minimises the risk of the darker coloured hull surfaces to suddenly start posturing, losing the surface finish.

With over 10 years of experience building epoxy infused yachts, X-Yachts took the decision in 2018 to build all models using this technology, one of the only yacht builders to do so.

Interior craftmanship

Danish design and architecture is famous for its clean, timeless style. The X56 is a showcase of luxury interior design; the yacht has a great sense of light and space, whilst maintaining practicality and functionality, with a design that works out on the open seas as well as moored in a harbour.

The flush deck hatches and coachroof side windows allows a lot of light into the boat and offers great ventilation. Large hull windows offers fantastic views from the spacious saloon.

High quality materials

The X56 is offered in a range of finishes: Nordic Oak veneer is standard on all furniture, or optional teak can be chosen.

All veneers are hand-selected in Italy by our specialists, from one of the most exclusive suppliers for the marine market for high quality yachts.

When combined with the top-quality craftsmanship X-Yachts is famous for, this translates to affordable luxury. As with all models in the range, there are a large number of options for soft furnishings;

The standard mast is an aluminium 3 spreader mast with discontinued rod rigging and racing turnbuckles. Option is a carbon mast, and a Furler Boom with carbon mandrel.

It could be argued that the sailplan for any yacht is one of its most important features. From the inception of the Pure X Range, flexibility has been key. X-Yachts took the best from our performance and cruising ranges, which is why you’ll find the X56 can be specced with a self-tacking jib for ease of handling when short handed and longitudinal genoa tracks to maximise sailing performance - the choice is yours.

The X56 has a large moulded bowsprit as standard allowing asymmetric spinnakers to be flown from the front and has space for a Code-0 furler in front of the main forestay, the innovative new shape of the bow allows both the furlers to be pushed further forward maximising the J measurement to improve upwind performance.
