Xc 50


The largest Xc model, the Xc 50 is a refined bluewater cruising yacht, offering a wide range of custom options to allow owners to create an elegant personalised yacht. 

Design details include minimalist flush opening deck hatches, smart interior recessed teak stripes, stylish lighting, and a choice of bimini and sprayhood options. 

The innovative Xcruising folding transom includes additional features on the Xc 50. Besides a hinged liferaft storage compartment to starboard there is also an extra storage compartment to port for a stern anchor, or flammable material such as diesel cans. The centre of the transom hydraulically folds down to form a bathing platform, with optional davits for a tender.


Underway, the high stability Xc 50 is generously canvassed, but with a high specification deck layout and controllable rig, designed to be easily managed for unmatched sailing performance. The Xc 50 will reach maximum hull speed in approximately 9 knots of true wind speed, using the 140% overlapping genoa. The sail plan has been created specifically for long distance cruising, and includes a 106% non-overlapping genoa, and 94% self-tacking jib. The mainsail comes with slab-reefing as standard, or there is an option of in-boom furling. The Xc 50 is also easily sailed short-handed, with under-deck halyards led aft to self-tailing winches (including electric options) and a secure central console.


Custom options include an extra large owners’ cabin with ensuite heads to port, incorporating space for appliances such as a washing machine. Alternatively the Xc 50 can accommodate a forepeak crew cabin, and central master heads. Aft there are two roomy double cabins, with the option of both ensuite. Alternatively an extra-spacious galley can be created with additional worktop space
to port, and a single aft heads with shower. The galley features space for two refrigerators, optional microwave, and Nespresso machine. 

Interior finish choices may also be customised, with a choice of contemporary and traditional materials, to complement the hand-finished furniture made by X-Yachts’ own craftsman joiners.
