The Xc 42 offers true flexibility. The adaptable sail plan ensures superb pace on all angles, with options including an inner forestay (without runners). The Xc 42 may fly either a 140% overlapping genoa or smaller 108% genoa, 90% self-tacking jib, or asymmetric spinnaker, for relaxing sailing on long bluewater passages and short stopovers, sailing with two crew or a full complement of guests.
Sail area may be easily adjusted thanks to a furling forestay and slab-reefing mainsail, or optional in-boom furling. Anchoring and mooring are also stress-free, thanks to a bow thruster, electric windlass, large bow locker, and optional stern davits for a tender.
40th Anniversary Edition
Following extensive feedback from a large group of Xc owners as well as X-Yachts' experience over the last 10 years, 2019 will see the launch of the X-Yachts 40 Years Anniversary edition of the Xc Range. Today, the Xcruising line encompasses five models - Xc 35, Xc 38, Xc 42, Xc 45 and Xc 50 and are all based on the same principles - a moderate hull shape with increased displacement, allowing for larger engines, batteries, tanks and anchoring gear. They share deep sections, and a forward ‘V’ shape to minimize slamming and make for a comfortable motion when going through waves, either under power or sail. Designed for long-distance passages, the Xcruising line features exten-sive teak decking, and a wide choice of windscreen, sprayhood and bimini op-tions. The Anniversary Edition of the Xc’s builds upon the success of the Xcruising range with an updated specification implementing improvements from feedback gathered from a fleet of over 300 Xc yachts worldwide.
From this edition of the Xc’s and onwards, the Xc models are built using epoxy infusion in the hull. X-Yachts hulls are post-cured or “oven-baked” to improve structural properties of the composite. Epoxy resin has higher me-chanical and thermal stability than traditional polyester resins. Added value to this production method is weight reduction and increased stability.
Exterior upgrades include:
Vacuum-infused oven-baked epoxy hull
New optional jib self-tacker design
Optional composite bowsprit
New option for alternative synthetic teak, Flexiteek.
Interior upgrades include:
Nordic Oak furniture
New upholstery types
New cushion design
New interior fittings throughout
Systems upgrade highlights include:
New tank displays showing remaining volume
Upgraded ambient lighting.
The upgraded versions of the Xc 38 as well as the Xc 45 will be presented at the Boot in Düsseldorf in January 2019 for the very first time!
The Xc 42 is a stylish yacht with a focus on comfortable bluewater cruising. She offers all the advantages of a larger yacht – long waterline, three cabin interior and generous sail plan – but with an ease of handling that makes her particularly suitable for short-handed sailing.
