New X-Yachts X56: Superior Sailing Pleasure


The X-Yachts X56 is the first of two all new 50 foot+ models that will take the pure X range to a whole new level, blending luxury and style with performance and cruising capability

The X-Yachts 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 X-Yachts Pure X Range.

With the introduction of the X-65 in 2007, X-Yachts started to infuse hulls for performance yachts utilising epoxy resin

The design philosophy was very clear from the outset and yard placed 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. The helm position offers excellent visibility and agile handling that puts you in control. The modern outboard mounted pedestals free up deck space, maintaining a clean area, free of hazards.

From the inception of the Pure X Range, flexibility has been key. X-Yachts took the best from their performance and cruising ranges, which is why the X56 can be specced with a self-tacking jib for ease of handling when short handed and longitudinal genoa tracks to maximise sailing performance.

The X-Yachts X56 has a large moulded bow-sprit as standard allowing asymmetric spinnakers to be flown from the front and has space for a Code-0 furler in front of the main forestay, the innova-tive new shape of the bow allows both the furlers to be pushed further for-ward maximising the J measurement to improve upwind performance.

Many of the features found on the X56 have been refined from years of experience, a deep understanding of life-at-sea, and of course listening to customers to find out exactly what they want from their yacht

The deck of the X-Yachts X56 has been designed to bring all the sailing controls back behind the main seating area of the cockpit, keeping this area safe and clear of rope. 4 powerful winches take all of the halyards and sheets and are setup so they can be easily controlled by the helm, or a separate trimmer. The deck has an integrated recessed self-tacker track for an 88% jib.

The X-Yachts X56 can also be specified with coachroof mounted lon-gitudinal genoa tracks with sheets and car adjusters lead below deck, back to the deck winches. The aft end of each cockpit bench, behind the cockpit and liferaft lockers are two rope bins, which can be used to store sheets and halyards when not in use.

Danish design and architecture is famous for its clean, timeless style. The X-Yachts X56 has a large transom door that also forms a bathing platform. The transom garage is large enough to store a 3 m inflatable tender. The tender can be maneouvered into the garage using an optional integrated crane, making launch and recovery a simple affair. The X56 can also be fitted with an optional telescopic gangway to allow easy boarding when moored stern to.

The X56 is offered in a range of finishes: Nordic Oak veneer is standard on all furniture, and optional veneers include a lighter White Tinted Oak and a more traditional Tea

The X-Yachts 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 well-proportioned saloon gives the yacht a spacious feel, but well-positioned hand rails and good furniture placement ensure it is always safe and easy to move around no matter the heel angle.

The central pouffe seat can be converted into a coffee table and repositioned as required – this offers fantastic flexibility and practicality. The spacious owner’s cabin features a large floating effect double berth.

The berth can be lifted, supported by gas struts, to access a large storage compartment below. The owner’s cabin has a large double wardrobe as standard and optional freeboard lockers.

Both aft cabins are spacious with excellent ventilation from both a large deck hatch and an outboard opening portlight in the cockpit coaming. Both have convertable ‘split’ berths that can be converted from a pair of single berths to a large king size double.
