From a racing point of view, the X-Yachts X-102 Mk11 has some exceptional sailing characteristics, its forte being windward work and light winds. The boat is very responsive to rudder and sail trim, almost dinghy like. The X-102 Mk11 is both stiff and dry. The engine is located just behind the mast, weight in bow and stern is reduced to a minimum by omitting unneeded interior in these areas. This improves upwind pointing and off wind performance. This is a good example of a well and regularly maintained X-102 Mk11 with lots of possibilities for cruising and racing with family and friends.

The boat has remained in the same ownership for the last 15 years, with light use, only gently raced, and wintered ashore. The X-102 was the first IOR yacht ever released by X-Yachts. It started with the MKI in 1981 followed by the MKII in 1983. In total, 173 of them were built until end of production in 1987. The X-102 was primarily meant as a fast and comfortable cruiser/racer. She won the 3/4 ton cup both in 1981 and 1982. In 1982 she also won the 3/4 ton cup in Cowes over various top trimmed Dehler DB1's as well as some fast One off's. Later, X-Yachts built a full racing version using the same hull (1985 - 1991). She won the 3/4 ton cup in 1985, 87, 88 and 89. In 1996, the Dutch sailor Harry Vogel crossed the Atlantic in his X-102 as a participant of the OSTAR race.
