X-Yachts – Xc 35

X-Yachts-DenmarkThe smallest member of the award-winning Xc family, the Xc 35 is a compact cruiser with a big heart. Launched last year, the model has already picked up the award for ‘Boat of the Year 2015′ in the ’31ft – 40ft Category’ in Sail Magazine’s annual awards.

The Xc 35 shares the same DNA heritage as her bigger Xcruising sisters, offering a perfect compromise between cruising comfort and sailing performance. She is a compact but surprisingly well equipped bluewater cruising yacht with smooth hull line, a stylish yet practical cockpit and uncluttered but functional deck layout. Easily sailed short-handed, she can also accommodate guests with a two double cabin layout, spacious saloon and ample storage. Following extensive feedback from a large group of Xc owners, as well as our own experience over the last 10 years, 2019 will see the launch of the ‘X-Yachts 40 Years Anniversary’ edition of the Xc 35. The ‘Anniversary’ edition of the Xc 35 builds upon the success of the Xcruising range with an updated specification implementing improvements from feedback gathered from a fleet of over 300 Xc yachts worldwide.
Exterior upgrades include new optional jib self-tacker design, composite bowsprit and new colourways.
Interior upgrades include Nordic oak furniture and new upholstery types, cushion design and new interior fittings throughout.
Systems upgrade highlights include new tank displays showing remaining volume in litres and upgraded ambient lighting.
“All in all, our judges deemed this an exceptional offering for cruisers looking for quality and performance in a boat less than 40 feet long”. SAIL Editors, “Boat of the Year 2015” Awards


X-Yachts - Xc 35Exterior
The Xc 35 has a sandwich construction hull and deck with X-Yachts’ famous steel keel girder system for unrivalled rigidity and security. It carries a deep keel for a low centre of gravity, with an optional shallow draft version, and recessed through-hull fittings and a folding propeller for reduced drag. Above deck, there is a keel-stepped tapered mast section, with discontinuous rod rigging as standard, and powerful backstay adjustment for complete control. A furling headstay as standard makes for stress-free short-handed sailing, with twin wheels, six large self-tailing winches and an under-deck mainsheet system led aft from the coachroof, which allows for full cockpit tent coverage. There are generous cockpit lockers aft and to starboard, and a large self-draining locker to accommodate multiple gas bottles. An optional stainless steel A-frame conceals and protects the anchor, as well as providing a tack point position from which to fly downwind asymmetric spinnakers. The foredeck conceals a watertight anchor locker, where an optional electrical windlass may be fitted. On the upgraded version, there will be additional space for electronic equipment on the companionway. There will be an option for compasses on each of the pedestals.
