The Perfect Cruising Companion Dear Fellow Yachtsmen, We are proud to introduce the Xc 50; a continuation of the new Xc line which sets new cruising standards for connoisseurs and dedicated sailing enthusiasts alike. The Xc 50 delivers a long-distance cruising experience beyond all expectations. Drawing on our wealth of experience, it represents the third in a family of innovative new generation cruisers, that use the best transferable features from our racing and performance yachts. Throughout the entire design process, our ambition has been to create the optimum characteristics for long-distance cruising. Our working philosophy has stressed the importance of reaching each new destination in the most relaxed and pleasurable way. We all have an idea of the perfect sailing lifestyle, our own nautical heaven. Whatever your dream is, the Xc 50 will take you there in style and comfort: The perfect cruising companion. Our best wishes for a memorable and enjoyable cruise. X-Yachts Design Group

The Xc Qualities Deeper hull sections High stability 30 years of know-how

One of the main differences between the Xperformance line and the new Xcruising line is the hull design. The Xc line, with its deeper hull sections, provides a greater interior volume for tanks, and other essential cruising equipment; a feature which also provides smoother sailing in all weathers. The Xc 50 is designed and developed for long-distance cruising, incorporating the most significant X-Yachts’ qualities: powerful main engine in a well-insulated compartment, with a 3-bladed folding propeller; large fuel and fresh water tanks, all strategically located low and central in the yacht for optimum weight distribution; an immensely strong steel hull girder frame, taking the loads from the composite lead/cast iron keel as well as from the keel stepped mast, and the discontinued rod rig.

The design brief for the Xc 50 follows very much the same lines as for the Xc 45,

effectively onto a larger boat. The Xc 45 has life raft storage in the transom; this was extremely well received, as was the powered bathing platform and the stern anchor arrangement. The Xc 50 will feature an extra storage compartment in the port side of the transom; which can either house flammable material like portable diesel cans or can accommodate a hinged stern anchor system. Neatly hidden behind a similarly side-hinged door, on the starboard side, is a liferaft ready for launch. Optional stern davits make launching, and recovery, of the yacht’s tender simple.

Control at the Helm TWIN WHEELS CENTRAL INSTRUMENT CLUSTER ERGONOMIC ARRANGEMENT

The helmsman’s position provides excellent sight lines forward whilst sailing and manoeuvring. The central instrument console ensures a good view of the navigation instruments, and doubles as a secure handhold for use at sea. The throttle and engine control panel are mounted in a starboard cockpit recess, for safe and reliable handling. Every detail is designed to maximise the skipper’s control at the helm and to help a shorthanded crew work safely. Three cockpit lockers, two forward and one aft of the steering wheels, provide ample storage for lines, fenders and cruising equipment. For halyards and control lines, a dedicated locker is integrated in the cockpit sole next to the companionway. Washboards are spring loaded and slide with minimal effort into a recess under the deck. Pushpit seats offer great views from the aft quarters.

Choose Your Own Interior CHOICE OF LAYOUTS EXTENDED GALLEY OR ADDITIONAL SHOWER STALL

The interior joinery of the Xc 50 is crafted in high grade marine teak. Panel effect bulkheads use recessed thin teak battens, to create a modernist/cubist environment. The bulkheads are either painted white or use the same high grade teak as the furniture. You are free to choose.
