In the early Summer of 2018, Birger Hansen and Lars Jeppesen picked up the very first model of X-79 on Jersey in the UK. The boat was a gift to X-Yachts Headquarters from the UK Dealer of X-Yachts, Conor Fanning.
During the Autumn of 2018, the refurbishing process of the exterior was started up by Birger. In 2019, Birger finished his work on the exterior and in 2021, he started the refurbishment of the Interior. It was very important to Birger, that the boat would appear with the exact same exterior as well as interior. The boat had to be restored exactly as it was back in 1979.
In January 2022, Birger finished the full refurbishment of the X-79 no. 1 and the boat appears in the exact same condition as when it was built 43 years ago.
Birger has put all his strength into revitalizing this unique piece of history. Below, you can follow all the steps of the whole process.
We want to thank all the partners who have contributed to the refurbishment:
