The Xc 45 was the first model in the Xcruising range to be launched, and was named European Yacht of the Year, praised for her combination of cruising comfort, performance under sail and responsive handling. As with all the Xc models which followed, the Xc 45 incorporates the X-Yachts steel hull/keel girder for strength and resistance to grounding, with deck and sail layouts designed for ease of handling when sailing two-up.

As the first model in the Xcruising range, the Xc 45 also introduced the Xc modern classic style. The "Next Generation" of the Xc 45 features larger bathing platforms, enlarged hull portlights, improved storage and functionality in the interior, and updated styling options.

If you thought this was just going to be another X-Yachts branded performance cruiser, think again!

The Xc 45 boasts new options including sidedeck and coachroof teak as well as fixed windscreens.

Functionality is key with small details such as the option to store the liferaft below the cockpit floor when in the marina.

The bathing platform can be operated either electronically but opened mechanically in emergency.

In true X-Yachts style, all the halyards pass below the deck surface and are stored in the cockpit floor self draining bin.

Bathing Platform

The large bathing platform is operated by a purchase block system. Below deck storage for a liferaft is accessed from the bathing platform.

Cockpit Table

The cockpit table with central storage, includes compass and handrail with drink holders. Optional chart plotter and autopilot control can be fitted into the aft end of the table.

Mainsheet System

Split mainsheet passes below deck on both sides and is led back to the aftmost cockpit winches. Optional vacuum applied teak on the coachroof.

Stainless Steel Winches

Stainless steel self-tailing Andersen Winches, which can be upgraded to be electrical powered are part of Xc 45s comprehensive standard quality.

Interior Luxury

The high quality galley has also been updated with space for optional appliances such as a Nespresso machine, microwave and top-loading deep freezer, automatic soft-closure drawers, and specially designed refuse storage. Corian worktops and a toughened glass splashback are fitted as standard.

The saloon now features a larger table, restyled cushions for improved comfort, and integral book cases for storage. There is a choice of interior finishes, including black or white Corian worktops, maple or striped holly floorboards, and fabric or microfibre upholstery in modern colourways.
