X-Yachts is now the biggest production builder of high-tech yachts, using a vacuum infusion process. Every gram of weight saved in the hull and deck of the Xp55, Xp50, Xp44, or Xp38 allows a greater amount of ballast to be added to the T-bulb keel for improved stability, which is particularly important when sailing short-handed. It also enables the yacht to carry a higher aspectrig for greater power and faster performance. Stiffness ensures that power is translated into controllable speed, with responsive steering, and excellent sea-going capabilities. Meanwhile the renowned strength of X-Yachts gives complete confidence in the event of a collision or grounding.
Designed and developed for long-distance cruising, the Xc 50, Xc 45, Xc 38, and Xc 35 take many of the qualities of the performance X-Yachts such as rod rigging and fully encapsulated keels, but also have many features that make it ideal for offshore passage making:
- A powerful engine in a well-insulated compartment,with a 3-bladed folding propeller
- Large fuel and fresh water tanks, all strategically located low and central in the yacht for optimum weight distribution
- An immensely strong steel hull girder frame, taking the loads from the composite lead/cast iron keel as well asfrom the keel stepped mast
- Deeper hull sections provide a greater interior volume,giving more storage and space for essential cruising equipment, a feature which also provides smoothersailing in all weathers.
