The X56 is a fifty six foot performance cruising yacht designed with serious cruising in mind; be that crossing the Atlantic, or exploring beautiful Mediterranean islands. The X56 joins the hugely successful and critically acclaimed Pure X Range.
The design philosophy was very clear from the outset - like all our luxury yachts, we place a huge emphasis on giving the owner a superb and comfortable sailing experience, on a yacht that is easy to handle by all the crew.
The first X56s hits the water in the beginning of 2021.
With the introduction of the X-65 in 2007, X-Yachts started to infuse hulls for performance yachts utilising epoxy resin. Epoxy infusion construction offers fantastic control over the laminate allowing it to be optimised to maximise strength and stiffness, whilst saving weight.
Three draft options are available: shallow (8'2"), standard (9'6"), and deep (10'10").
In the X56 all weight saved is used to increase the yacht’s stability enabling the crew to have a more relaxed time and to feel safer and more comfortable. The fact, that the hull is cured, baked at high temperatures for almost 24 hours, not only optimises the hull material properties but also minimises the risk of the darker coloured hull surfaces to suddenly start posturing, losing the surface finish.
With over 10 years of experience building epoxy infused yachts, X-Yachts took the decision in 2018 to build all models using this technology, one of the only yacht builders to do so.
Danish design and architecture is famous for its clean, timeless style. The X56 is a showcase of luxury interior design; the yacht has a great sense of light and space, whilst maintaining practicality and functionality, with a design that works as well out on the open sea as moored in a harbour.
The flush deck hatches and coachroof side windows allow a lot of light into the boat and offer great ventilation. Large hull windows offer fantastic views from the spacious saloon.
Eight layouts are currently offered- please inquire for more information and graphics describing these options.High quality materials
The X56 is offered in a range of finishes: Nordic Oak veneer is standard on all furniture, and optional veneers include a lighter White Tinted Oak and a more traditional Teak.
All veneers are hand-selected in Italy by our specialists from one of the most exclusive suppliers for the marine market for high quality yachts.
When combined with the top-quality craftsmanship X-Yachts is famous for, this translates to affordable luxury. As with all models in the range, there are a large number of options for soft furnishings;Bulkhead and Furniture Surfaces
Quarter sawn high quality wooden veneers, lightly sanded and varnished, from Italian suppliers. As standard furniture is built in Nordic Oak offering a light modern look. More traditional teak is also available.Cabin Sole
Standard options have a hard wearing top surface of laminate imitating wooden veneers. As an alternative, top surface of genuine wooden veneer (as Bulkhead & Furniture) is also available.Galley Worktop
The worktop is made of an advanced composite of natural minerals and pure acrylic polymer which creates a stone-hard, luxurious surface.
The standard mast is an aluminium 3 spreader mast with discontinued rod rigging and racing turnbuckles. Option is a carbon mast, and a Furler Boom with carbon mandrel.
It could be argued that the sailplan for any yacht is one of its most important features. From the inception of the Pure X Range, flexibility has been key. X-Yachts took the best from our performance and cruising ranges, which is why you’ll find the X56 can be specced with a self-tacking jib for ease of handling when short handed and longitudinal genoa tracks to maximise sailing performance - the choice is yours.
The X56 has a large moulded bowsprit as standard allowing asymmetric spinnakers to be flown from the front and has space for a Code-0 furler in front of the main forestay, the innovative new shape of the bow allows both the furlers to be pushed further forward maximising the J measurement to improve upwind performance.
