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 Headquarter from X-Yachts UK Dealer, Conor Fanning.
During the Autumn of 2018, the refurbishing process was started up by Birger. He has put all his strength in revitalising this unique piece of history. Below, you can follow the steps of the whole process. More photos to come during the months of late summer and early autumn.
During the X-Yachts Anniversary Gold Cup, 7th - 9th June 2019, the boat was shown to the international crowd of participants, dealers and guests.
