The new X5⁶: Designed with serious cruising in mind

2 MINUTES READ

The X5⁶ is a fifty-six-foot performance cruising yacht designed with serious cruising in mind; be that crossing the Atlantic, or exploring beautiful Mediterranean islands. The X5⁶ joins the hugely successful and critically acclaimed Pure X Range. The design philosophy was very clear from the outset – like all our luxury yachts, we place a huge emphasis on giving the owner a superb and comfortable sailing experience, on a yacht that is easy to handle by all the crew. With the introduction of the X-65 in 2007, X-Yachts started to infuse hulls for performance yachts utilising epoxy resin. Epoxy infusion construction offers fantastic control over the laminate allowing it to be optimised to maximise strength and stiffness, whilst saving weight. In the X5⁶ all weight saved is used to increase the yacht’s stability enabling the crew to have a more relaxed time and to feel safer and more comfortable. The fact, that the hull is cured, baked at high temperatures for almost 24 hours, not only optimises the hull material properties but also minimises the risk of the darker coloured hull surfaces to suddenly start posturing, losing the surface finish. With over 10 years of experience building epoxy infused yachts, X-Yachts took the decision in 2018 to build all models using this technology, one of the only yacht builders to do so.

X5⁶

Danish design and architecture is famous for its clean, timeless style. The X5⁶ is a showcase of luxury interior design; the yacht has a great sense of light and space, whilst maintaining practicality and functionality, with a design that works as well out on the open sea as moored in a harbour. The flush deck hatches and coachroof side windows allow a lot of light into the boat and offer great ventilation. Large hull windows offer fantastic views from the spacious saloon. The first X5⁶s hits the water in the beginning of 2021.
