FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
IL COLORE DEL VENTO is a beautifully-presented one owner example of ‘European Yacht of the Year’ winning X-Yachts X-55. Professionally maintained by a former America’s Cup sailor and industry profession and fitted out with a huge specification for fast and comfortable cruising and competitive club racing, IL COLORE DEL VENTO ticks pretty much every possible box.
During her short life, IL COLORE DEL VENTO has been used for a combination of family cruising (approx 3 weeks a year in the Adriatic area) and club racing with friends, where she has proven to be hugely competitive with numerous line honours and overall wins.
Her specification highlights include:-
IL COLOURE DEL VENTO is now offered for immediate sale at a very attractive as her owner has a new yacht in build.
Elegant, fast and comfortable, the X-55 is the yacht designed to fulfil your dreams and enhance your passion. The keywords are speed, style and innovation, without compromise. Pure aesthetic pleasure with exceptional performance; designed by craftsmen and top sailors to enable you and your family days of relaxation and pleasurable cruising, whilst taking the ambitious racing sailor first over the finish line.
A sheer delight to sail. With the extremely light cable steering, it is possible to steer her lightly and sensitively with one hand while sitting on the side deck; the view of the telltales on the head sails are perfect from either helm position.
Safety and strength are of vital importance to our naval engineers. All X-Yachts are built in accordance with the European CE-Certification and fulfil the standards of the ABS Hull Certification. The core feature of X-Yachts is the legendary hot-galvanised high-strength steel bottom frame: just ask any X-Yacht owner.
The long foredeck and the short distinctive coach roof make the deck layout look clean, elegant and timeless. We pay attention to detail and some of the notable features that emphasis this are the newly designed flush curved deck hatches as well as the anchor launch system, allowing you to anchor easily in every bay whether you wish to stop for a swim or stay overnight.
The X-55 gives you the feel of being in complete control behind the large steering wheels, while the yacht, with her harmonious hull lines, is gliding smoothly through the water. All control lines are led back under deck to the two halyard winches mounted on the coach roof, and a dedicated halyard cockpit locker has been integrated in the cockpit floor. The neatly recessed sprayhood is easily unfolded.
The functional cockpit offers ideal conditions for handling the yacht, as well as relaxing while at sea or in port. Harmony of form and function is the defining feature of an X-Yacht, guaranteeing you the pure pleasure of sailing. Ample storage facilities are provided in the two large cockpit lockers at the rear. For safety reasons the cockpit compartment fits a life raft, and all lines are led under deck. Elegant cleats and the under deck Genoa furler are further examples of exquisite details that make all the difference.
The detailed workmanship, the carefully selected teak veneers and the furniture fittings built to the highest standards, all mirror the ambitions and attitude of X-Yachts. In the spacious saloon with plenty of natural and artificial light, and the perfectly equipped galley, you and your guests can enjoy a relaxing dinner after a pleasant day on the water.
The gracefully curved, unvarnished teak steps of the companionway descend to the elegant saloon. Fashionable shaped handrails and convenient furniture edges provide security as you move about below deck, or you can sit in comfort at the large and beautifully crafted dining table surrounded by a sofa. The comfortable nav station is designed to accommodate all navigational instruments and communication equipment.
The modern approach of having the wood grain running horizontally, and the vertical ventilation corner posts, are examples of attractive Scandinavian styling pioneered by X-Yachts innovative in-house interior architects. Only the best choice of yachting materials are used; for example the floorboards made of 20 mm Honeycomb with outer panels of teak plywood, and the Oceanair blinds integrated in the deck head sealing panels.
The forward owner’s cabin, with its large double berth and ample storage space, provides you with the luxury X-Yachts strives for; whilst the aft cabins, with separate heads, allow your guests or crew to retreat into their own comfortable quarters to relax and enjoy life on board.
The X-55 is the proud winner of the title “European Yacht of the Year 2007”. A member of the jury said: “The X-55 is one of the few boats in the market that satisfies both the regatta sailor and the long-distance cruiser.”
Production Years: 2005 — 2012 - Number Built: 34
“Despite the best attempts of many imitators, there’s no doubt that X-Yachts still retains its long-held reputation as undisputed leader of the cruiser-racer segment. Each new model remains faithful to the company’s well-established principles but somehow manages to add a little extra to the pleasure of sailing. The new 55 is now the top end of X-Yachts’ production range. Beyond that length, the Xs are built as semi-customs, tailored to meet their owners’ specifications, as were the imposing X-73 and the recent new generation Mediterranean cruiser the IMX 70. However, in terms of philosophy, aesthetics and design, the 55 is an X-Yacht through and through. In fact, it’s one of the best models in the entire range. “
