History of X-Yachts
In 1979, one of today’s most successful and quality orientated production yards was established in Denmark. During the 1980’s, X-Yachts designed and built winning IOR yachts for World Class Racing. The success acheived with this market attracted the attention of the cruising market, which was then looking for fast, high quality and comfortable sailing yachts. It seemed very clear to X-Yachts that we should use boat building experience from the fast racers and combine this with building high performance cruising yachts.
Throughout the 1990’s, X-Yachts Range of Performance Cruisers was established. The X-412 was the first model in the new line, and was followed by the X-512, X-382, IMX 38, X-442, X-362, X-332, X-302, X-612, X-482 and finally, in 1999, the X-562.
The new millennium was celebrated with the introduction of the IMX 40 racer - an almost unbeatable IMS and IRC performer. In early 2002, the IMX 45 followed her little sister onto the racecourse and continued the successful tradition worldwide. The first X-Yacht 73, built in 2001, was another milestone in the yard’s history. She represented their entry into the luxury “deep water, cruising market”.
The New Generation
With the launch of the X-43 and X-46 in 2003, a new generation of performance cruisers was born. Three new models followed in 2004; the X-40, X-37 and X-50. In summer 2006, the X-55 was launched - a yacht with many of the elegant details of the IMX 70 racer/cruiser which was, itself, launched as a “State of the Art” yacht, with its modern yet classic design, in the summer of 2005.
One Design Classes
The new X-35 One Design followed the traditions of the X-79 and X-99, as popular large fleet one-design racers and, in 2007, two hundred X-35s were racing around the world as an ISAF recognized class. In 2007, the bigger sister, the X-41, has started building another X-Yachts one design class with its first World Championship held in Copenhagen in July 2008.
Today the yard is still headed by the three founders.
Looking to buy an X-Yacht Performance Cruiser?
X-Yachts have researched the cruiser market for several years. A superb cruiser, targeted towards the long distance cruising market, contains more and heavier equipment than a cruiser mainly targeted for coastal sailing. This means: increased tank volumes, diesel generator, watermaker, large fridges, heavy oven, microwave oven, dishwasher, washing machine, powered winches, serious anchor equipment, bow thruster, entertainment system, various communication systems, furlers to handle sails and, finally, and consequently a larger engine to be able to push it all in comfort.
A deeper hull shape, with V sections forward of the keel, will ensure a smoother upwind sailing: under sail, under engine, or a combination of both.
Exactly as the big car manufactures are doing, X-Yachts have chosen to make the yacht’s standard specification very extensive. This allows them to offer a high level of quality, as they are able to carry out an “in depth” study of the complexity of the installations.
The launch of the first X-65 is set for spring 2009, with another four sister ships planned for launch the same year.
The X-Yacht X-65 is the result of combining the conceptual ideas behind the X-55 and the IMX 70. The clean, uncluttered deck layout mirrors X-Yachts philosophy: simplicity and functionality, with a modern yet classic styling. Comfort in style combined with world-class quality
The design criteria: To create a big sister to the successful X-55, which won the title: “European Yacht of the Year 2007”.
The X-Yacht X-65 utilises well-proven build techniques and also introducing vacuum bag epoxy technology for hull and deck. The X-65 is being designed and engineered in cooperation with the most respected suppliers. As standard, discontinuous rod rigging with Navtec hydraulic backstay cylinders and boom vang will support a 3 spreader, tapered carbon mast with a “Park Avenue” carbon boom. Electrical deck recessed headstay furler system will make light work of the headsail handling.
The X-Yachts racing One Design classes
The vision behind the One Design was to create a sporty and simple yacht to sail with extremely pleasing lines, providing under deck comfort areas for the crew after racing, but also for the active family during weekend or holiday cruising.
