X4, the new frontier of performance cruising according to X-Yachts

X4 Exterior
Following the design of the X6 (to be launched in May 2016), the Danish shipyard X-Yachts is enriching its new range of performance cruisers with the X4, twelve and a half meters that will most likely see the light of day next summer.
The boat combines in itself the characteristic features of the Xc (Xcruising) and Xp (Xperformance) series, so that it can simultaneously offer good sailing performance (thanks to the latest construction technologies) and ample space below deck.

The hull will be 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 you will have 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 charting station and recessed forward in the master cabin.

X4 Owners CabinThe first ten boats will be made with light O-Tech exterior trim and upholstery, while standard production will feature a darker T-Tech. The master cabin is even larger in size due to the hull’s increased beam (3.95 m). The price, for now, is set at 279,000 euros + VAT.

Solaris 39, an evergreen IOR (with top construction)

In the early 1980s, in the wake of the introductions that arose with the end of the previous decade, lines and volumes began to change, more ‘modern’ boats were born, with sleeker hulls and buoyancy closer to the off-beat. These
