1987 X Yachts X-99 £24,950
The X-99 is firmly established as a Class, and it is highly improbable that any new yacht, aiming for the same market can ever get close to the X-99. National and International events organized by X-99 associations around the World afford the X-99 owner a well-structured, competitive racing forum that is hard (if not impossible) to beat.

Fractional rigs supported by aft swept spreaders are currently in vogue amongst modern sports boats, but have their roots in the cruising scene. The principal benefit of such a rig is its simplicity, not its performance. The X-99's spreaders are raked aft 5”. This allows sufficient safety margin to tack or gybe the boat without the runners on, but the performance gain from having adjustable runners is still inherent in the rig. A perfectly trimmed fractional rig will always depend on having runners and checkstays - the X-99 is "born" with these. Keel stepped alloy mast (2016) by J Mast, Boom alloy. Stainless steel standing rigging (2016), Spectra running rigging (2016), manual backstay adjuster. Spinnaker pole alloy. Carbon tiller and bowsprit.
