RODGERS YACHT SALES

xYachts

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. Our success 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 us that we should use our boat building experience from the fast racers and combine this with building high performance cruising yachts.

X-Yachts are designed by sailors, for sailors. Every yacht is created to perform superbly in all conditions and in all sail configurations. However, many of the very same factors which make the X-Yachts race-winners, also ensure that they are enjoyable fast cruisers.

The complete X-Yachts range: Xc 35, 38, 42, 45, 50 and Xp 33, 38, 44, 50, 55

 XC35

XC35

Xc 35

The Xc 35 is designed to offer a smoother voyage than typical performance cruisers, by having a relatively heavier displacement and deeper hull sections. These deeper V-shaped hull sections, utilized throughout the Xc range, give a more comfortable motion in large waves.

The Xc 35 is offered with teak on the side decks; applied with vacuum technology to ensure quality and sustained longevity.

The optional stainless steel A-frame on the bow, hides and protects the anchor while offering an efficient position for tacking the downwind asymmetrics.

The foredeck conceals a watertight anchor locker, where an optional electrical anchor winch can be fitted.

LOA: 34ft • LWL: 31ft 6in • Beam: 11ft 6in • Draft: 5ft 3in/6ft 3in • Displacement: 14,220 lbs • Ballast: 4,740 lbs • SailArea: 703 ft² • Fuel/Water: 44/65 gal • Design: Niels Jeppesen

Xp44

Xp44

Xp 44

The latest generation of X-Yachts, the Xp (for Performance) are built using epoxy infusion, post-cured and oven baked, with carbon reinforcement in both the hull and keel structure. This creates strength, stiffness and a high ballast to weight ratio, key elements in creating yachts which offer superlative sailing pleasure and performance. It also insures a longer-lasting, stronger yacht.

On deck and below, attention to detail assures that the finish of every X-Yacht is of the highest quality. Every element is designed in-house for excellent ergonomics, usability and appearance.

LOA: 43ft 7in • LWL: 39ft • Beam: 13ft 4in • Draft: 7ft 6in/8ft 8in • Displacement: 19,070 lbs • Ballast: 8,488 lbs • SailArea: 1,150 ft² • Fuel/Water: 53/95 gal • Design: Niels Jeppesen

Xp55

Xp55

Xp 55

Standard specifications for the Xp 55 include space in the stern for a 3.10m RIB, 4 large cockpit lockers, a cockpit table, which can be stored neatly under the cockpit floor. 4 large self-tailing winches are standard, operating all halyards, sheets and trim lines from the comfortable and well protected cockpit.

The interior is light and friendly in a style combining a modern Scandinavian look with a practical style blended with details, mirroring the extensive experience of the in-house interior design department.

LOA: 55ft • LWL: 48ft 10in • Beam: 15ft 8in • Draft: 9ft 4in • Displacement: 37,038 lbs • Ballast: 13,889 lbs • Sail Area: 1,857 ft² • Fuel/Water: 106/145 gal • Design: Niels Jeppesen
