She sports the latest in fast hull and appendage design; a non overlapping headsail configuration; double spreader, carbon mast and boom from one of Europe’s leading suppliers; large diameter carbon wheel; all trimlines leading to both sides of the coach roof; and a backstay adjustment run via the Magic Wheel.
X4 is the second model to be launched by X-Yachts in the brand new range, X.
Designed to complement both the existing two ranges, Xperformance (Xp) and Xcruising (Xc), X models will offer both excellent sailing capabilites and a modern spacious interior. The new ‘X’ models will include innovative design features above and below deck, the latest build technologies and the use of exceptionally high quality materials. By introducing this range, X-Yachts continues sharing the passion for “Superb Sailing Pleasure”.
The first X4s will be sailing by mid-summer 2016 and be present at the Autumn boat shows. With a substantial keel weight and sail plan, the X4 is a dream to sail into wind and waves. The increased load on both the hull and rig makes it also necessary to increase the specification for the dimensions of the deck gear, winches, clutches etc, resulting in ultimate sailing pleasure.
The hull is made using vacuum infused epoxy sandwich lamination technology to ensure maximum strength and safety. The X4 offers sailors a substantial keel weight and sail plan making it a dream to sail into wind and waves.
11 fixed hull and deck port lights and 12 open able deck hatches ensures maximum interior ventilation and light whilst the double ended main sheets system is lead to two dedicated main sheet self-tailing winches with a further 4 for halyards and the genoa. On deck, there is a mainsheet track which is recessed into the cockpit floor, a dedicated life raft compartment aft of the helmsman and four spacious cockpit lockers. The bathing platform comes standard.
All X-Yachts normal features including encapsulated lead keel, hydraulic backstay adjuster, discontinuous rod rigging and Spectra halyards are standard.
Over the past two years, interior designers and carpenters have been striving to reach an "expression" for the X6, normally only seen on larger super yachts. The X4 interior will be incorporating inspiration from the evolution of this design process.
There is a galley worktop surface in Corian with integrated double stainless steel sinks, a quality mixer faucet, built-in top loading cooling box (alternatively a freezer), fully gimballed oven and space for additional front opening fridge and coffee machine.
New stylish bookshelves, located behind the nav station and recessed into the bulkhead separating the owner's and sails cabin, add to exquisite interior detailing along with a large comfortable owner's berth thanks to an increased hull beam.
The surface finish will be O-Tech veneer for the first ten boats whilst the standard is a darker T-Tech veneer.
