It’s been exactly one month since we announced the launch of the long-awaited X6, but it’s already time to pick up the keyboard again to introduce you to the latest addition from Danish shipyard X Yachts, which put the new X4 in the water a few hours ago. The new twelve-meter is the second model in the new X range to hit the water-the new line was launched to synthesize the two current ranges Xp (performance) and Xc (cruising). The lines of the hull speak a new language than we are used to hearing when it comes to X Yachts: they are softer than in the past and hark back to shapes we are more used to seeing on boats from “Mediterranean” shipyards. In the bow, hull volumes are abundant to create spacious interiors.


The hull is made of vacuum infusion with epoxy sandwich lamination to ensure maximum safety and strength. The keel (available in three sizes: 1.85, 2.20 and 2.50 m) has a ballast of 3,800 kg, a significant weight on the boat’s 8,850 total displacement: this should result in greater stability and a hull that can combine well with a generous sail plan (97 sq. m. with white sails). Brightness and ventilation below deck will be provided by 23 hatches, portholes, windows and skylights. As standard equipment it features hydraulic backstay, discontinuous shrouds and Spectra halyards. The standard engine will be 45-horsepower diesel with a folding-blade propeller as standard.

Over the past two years, the shipyard’s designers and carpenters have strived to achieve a stylistic figure in the interior that was only found on larger boats. New designer shelves are located behind the chart station and recessed in the bow, in the master cabin. The first ten boats will be built with light O-Tech exterior trim and upholstery, while standard production will feature a darker T-Tech. The owner’s cabin is even larger due to the hull’s increased beam (3.95 m).The price, for now, is set at 279,000 euros + VAT.
