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 50. The ‘Anniversary’ edition of the Xc 50 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.
From this edition of the Xc 50 and onwards, the Xc models are built using epoxy infusion in the hull. X-Yachts hulls are post-cured or “oven-baked” to improve structural properties of the composite. Epoxy resin has higher mechanical and thermal stability than traditional polyester resins. Added value to this production method is weight reduction.
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.

Underway, the high stability Xc 50 is generously canvassed, but with a high specification deck layout and controllable rig, designed to be easily managed for unmatched sailing performance. The Xc 50 will reach maximum hull speed in approximately 9 knots of true wind speed, using the 140% overlapping genoa. The sail plan has been created specifically for long distance cruising, and includes a 106% non-overlapping genoa, and integrated 94% self-tacking jib. The mainsail comes with slab-reefing as standard, or there is an option of in-boom furling. The Xc 50 is also easily sailed short-handed, with under-deck halyards led aft to self-tailing winches (including electric options) and a secure central console.
