The first official render of the new XR from X-Yachts

X-Yachts in the 1980s-90s was the shipyard that fully introduced the concept of cruising-regatta boats. exploitable on family vacations, but authentically successful between buoys or on the high seas. A concept that has since been taken up by many other shipyards and has become a “classic” of modern boats.

The detail of the test of the new XR.

The Danish shipyard, however, has changed course in the last 10 years, heading more sharply toward cruising with the XC range first, also with the new XC 47 for blue water sailing, and then with that Pure X, until this year when management decided to go back to basics. It will be called XR and will be presented at BOOT Dusseldorf 2025, the new model also dedicated to racing by X-Yachts.

XR – What X-Yachts’ return to racing will be like.

Racing is an integral part of the X-Yachts DNA and the shipyard has a long history starting from its inception with the first model the X-79 that won regattas around the world.

The length of the hull will be 12.74 m, have not been disclosed . For the creation of the new XR X-Yachts will bring to bear all the expertise gained in previous models, with a Design Team that will draw on leading figures in the racing world such as Bouwe Bekking, Jesper Radich, North Sails, C-Performance and Max Gürgel, with the goal of creating the fastest racing boat in its class.

The first leaked render gives a glimpse of an aesthetically very distinctive first, inverted with a shape that winks at the open world, and there is also a glimpse of a slight aft knee/edge that seems to evoke what was done on the old Xp 33.
