Xc 47 #1 – The best cruiser ever built
Based on the experiences with the X4⁹E, the increasing focus on sustainability and demands from our clients, X-Yachts has decided to build the first Xc 47 as a hybrid yacht.
The boat will therefore be named Xc 47E and will be equipped with a 30kW electric propulsion system (30kW of peak power and 25kW continuous power), an 11 kW DC generator and a 46,4kWh Lithium propulsion battery bank.
The large propulsion battery bank will allow the Xc 47E to travel more than 30 NM at a speed of 6 knots only using electric power from the battery bank.
The 11kW DC generator will be able to support in case longer distances have to be made under motor.
The propulsion system is based on the brand new Oceanvolt HighPower ServoProp 25, enabling high generation possibilities under sail with the variable pitch propeller.
The engine room has been converted into a “technical compartment” where the battery management system, the HPSP 25 and a large 8kW combi (inverter/charger) is installed. The room is noise insulated to the highest standards and has forced ventilation.
The 8kW combi power supplies, power for the electric stove, entertainment systems, electric hot water tap and other AC equipment onboard and allows fast recharging of the propulsion battery bank, when connected to shore power.
The service battery bank is standard for Hybrid Xc 47’s also lithium type.
All batteries are stored safely in alu boxes below the floorboard ensuring increased stability of the yacht and with means of a safe fire extinguishing system.
Together with Oceanvolt, the overall DC system is beyond the newest ISO standards for yachts with electrical propulsion and is designed so the boat is more or less self-sufficient with power.
The Xc 47 is probably the best cruiser ever built – We can’t wait for the launch in September.
