The X-35 is a 34’10” multiple crew monohull sailboat designed by Niels Jeppesen. She was built by X-Yachts (Denmark) and made of sandwich fiberglass / polyester with galvanised steel frame. The production started in 2005 .
The sail plan, with the powerful main sail and 106% max jib, has the ability to accelerate the X-35 out of tacks, and keep her in the fast lane upwind.
The non-overlapping jib makes it easy for a shorthanded crew or family to sail the X-35, and an optional furling headstay converts the X-35 into a family friendly yacht.
The X-35 has sleeping accommodation for eight persons, and will comfortably take a family of four out on a summer holiday cruise.
The mahogany interior gives the saloon a welcoming feeling, and the forward double cabin is roomy and has additional storage below the berth and in the wardrobe.
During racing the saloon table can be removed to create space for storing additional sails.
The split pantry and navigation section includes a gas stove with two jets and oven, a sink, storage for cutlery and a coolbox. The main switchboard can be fully controlled from the seat in front of the navigation area, and there is plenty of room for any navigation and electronic equipment needed by the owner.
The mahogany interior is hand-polished with a satin finish; and the superb joinery reflects X-Yachts traditional craftsmanship, not only when new but also in the future.
The glass fibre components, such as the engine box and the toilet section, are finished in a high gloss gelcoat that gives a modern and fresh look and, with the glass fibre head innerliner, comfort below deck is guaranteed in both warm and cold weather
Deck and Cockpit
Much attention has been paid to details on deck to make the X-35 easy to handle. Her cockpit is open and functional with a pleasingly clean layout. Her large wheel allows the helmsman to have a good view of the foresail, yet requires very little effort to steer her through the sea.
Her refined control line system, on top of the coach roof, keeps the cockpit clutter-free, and allows easy and simple handling for both family and crew. A special feature is the jib in-hauler system for improved and effective jib control, which runs neatly under the deck and back to the cockpit. All the deck equipment has been specially selected from top market brands, in accordance with the X-35’s superior design and high performance criteria.
