Three young Danish sailing enthusiasts, Birger Hansen and brothers Lars and Niels Jeppesen were passionate about the 1/4 tone class and wanted to do better than anyone else. With the X-79 yacht , The Danes won everything within sight. The X-79 was quickly turned into a small series, and just under 470 units were build and sold up to 1994.
They has produce around 5,000 yachts. X- Yachts has office in Haderslev, Denmark and Hamnle-le-Rice in Hampshire, England.
We will present you Xcrusing line and one of their model Xc- 42.
Today the Xcruising line encompasses five models -Xc 35, Xc 38, Xc 42, Xc 45 and Xc 50 and are all based on the same principles - a moderate hull shape with increased displacement, allowing for larger engines, batteries, tanks and anchoring gear. They share deep sections, and a forward "V" shape to minimise slamming and make for a comfortable motion when going through waves, either under power or sail. Designed for lonf-distance passages, the Xcruising line features extensive teak decking, and a wide choice of windscreen, sprayhood and bimini options.
Xc-42 Cruising freedom
The XC 42 offers multiple options including an adaptable sail plan that ensures superb pace on al angles, with options including an inner forestay (without runners).
She may fly either a 140% overlapping genoa or smaller 108% genoa, 90% selftacking jib, or asymmetric spinnaker, for relaxing sailing on long bluewater passages and short stopovers, sailing with two crew or a full complement of guests. Sail area my be easly adjusted thanks to a furling forestay and slab-reefing mainsail, or optional in-boom furling.
Anchoring and mooring are also stress-free, thanks to a bow thruster, electric windlass, large bow locker, and optional stern davits for a tender.
The Xc - 42 is offered in two spacious three-cabin layouts, with either a forward-facing or central navigation station, and either a compact WC or extra generous wetroom-style heads, both accessible from the mail saloon.
New interior styling points include full LED lighting, both above and below decks. Thanks to new larger hull portlights there is also increased natural light in the saloon and cabins. The galley features new fixtures and fittings, including automatic soft-close drawers, adn space for appliances such as a microwave and etc.
The exterior of the Xc 42 also benefits from some updates, including optional teak on the side decks and coachroofs as well as new hull and canvas colour choices.
