This listing if for a new boat, built to order at the X-Yachts factory in Denmark.
The X4⁶ is a versatile, fast family cruiser that enables her owner to make the most out of every moment. Advanced hull construction, a powerful sail plan, and a well-proportioned cockpit put you at the center of an engaging sailing experience. X-Yachts refers to this as "Superb Sailing Pleasure".
Down below, Scandinavian style and craftsmanship create a place where you will always enjoy spending time. The X4⁶ exhibits quality and attention to detail, both inside and out, helping to realise its purpose as an excellent sailing yacht. This is Pure X.
The first X4⁶s will hit the water late summer 2018, and will be displayed at the larger boat shows this Autumn.
The hull design of the X4⁶ follows the latest design philosophy which maximises sailing performance. Designed to excel in all wind conditions due to a generous sail plan coupled to a high quality mast and rig, including discontinuous rod rigging as standard.
X4⁶ hulls are built with X-Yachts' advanced technology, including vacuum epoxy infusion, and incorporating X-Yachts' famous steel keel grillage to securely hold the composite lead/iron keel in place for outstanding safety in all conditions.
*2 draft options are available, with the shallow draft measuring 7'7", and the deep draft measuring 8'2".
The deck layout takes a combination of the features from both her siblings; a self-taking jib is standard, with sheet handled by one of the halyard winches, and a mainsheet track is recessed into the cockpit sole with an 8:1 purchase traveller control system. Mainsheets are lead up to winches that are within easy reach of the helmsman.
Large Harken self-tailing winches are standard, and can optionally be electrified along with one of the halyard winches.
Each of the twin wheels is connected to its own quadrant with a completely independent wire system. This built in redundancy is an excellent safety feature and virtually removes the need for an emergency tiller. The high aspect ratio rudder is perfectly balanced to make the X4⁶ agile and responsive.
Teak comes as standard in the cockpit, on the seats and the sole, and is optional on the sidedeck and coachroof top, as well as on the optional electrical operated bathing platform.
The influence of clean Scandinavian design can be seen throughout the interior of the X4⁶ being both traditional but with a modern appearance. The Danish quality craftsmanship is of a very high standard with finely crafted details, and showcases carpentry at its very best. The wooden veneer will be Nordic Oak as standard, with other options on offer.
The toughened glass coachroof windows flood the interior with natural light. In addition to the large flush skylights, sections of the side windows are also open-able to provide excellent ventilation. Each aft cabin has an open-able portlight in the cockpit and additionally an outboard facing opening in the coaming windows. Combined with the flush skylight, the aft cabins have optimal ventilation, a great benefit in warmer climates.
The port aft cabin can be specified with an optional split berth, which can be easily converted between twin berths and a king sized double berth. Both aft cabins are offered with a high level freeboard shelve with stainless steel railing or a freeboard hung adjustable pipe-berth. Both aft cabins have large double wardrobes.
The X4⁶ comes standard with an ultra-modern common-rail Yanmar diesel engine delivering 57 hp, and can be upgraded to an 80 hp unit. The engine compartment is sound insulated to 'Super Yacht' specification, using a heavy 8mm solid rubber layer, 50mm of sound deadening rockwool and finally covered with a perforated aluminium plating. All openings are sealed to eliminate noise.
The engine is delivered as standard with a 2 blade Flex-O-Fold propeller to minimise drag and maximise sailing performance.
