A Fresh Look from X-Yachts

Danish builder X-Yachts is tweaking its cruising boat lineup and is set to launch the Xc38 Next Generation.

X-Yachts is a company that listens to its customers. For it’s racing owners, it builds the Xp line of performance-oriented racer-cruisers. But the company also has clients who want a boat that sails well, but with a few more comforts for longer voyages, and so it introduced the Xc range that includes models from 35 to 50 feet.

Since launching its Xc series, the Danish builder has sold more than 250 boats in its cruiser-racer line. Based on the feedback from owners, the company is now revamping the designs a bit and just announced the introduction of is newest update, the Xc 38 Next Generation.

The new model features more teak option on deck, larger portlights to let in more light below, new keels that will increase stability, a larger fold-down transom swim platform, and an option to integrate the engine’s throttle with the bow thruster.


Down below, the mahogany interior has been changed to teak, bookshelves have been added to saloon shelves and LED lighting is now used throughout.
