The X4³ is the second model in a new range, aimed at the discerning sailor and his crew. It utilizes advanced, proven technology and build techniques which only incorporate first class components, enabling the exploration of new uncharted horizons in comfort.
Designed to complement both the existing two ranges, Xperformance (Xp) and Xcruising (Xc), X models offer both excellent sailing capabilites and a modern spacious interior. The new 'X' models will include innovative design features above and below deck, the latest build technologies and the use of exceptionally high quality materials. By introducing this range, X-Yachts continues sharing the passion for 'Superb Sailing Pleasure'.
The X43 hull is a composite construction, moulded in a 5-axis-milled female tooling. X-Yachts hulls are built using the latest construction technologies with a vacuum-infused, post-cured epoxy construction.
The hull is a full sandwich construction, using foam core, biaxial E-glass skins and local E-glass unidirectional reinforcements strategically positioned for strength and weight optimization.
All structural bulkheads are securely bonded to hull and deck. All bulkheads of marine plywood in thicknesses between 12 and 20 mm.
At the forward end of the boat watertight bulkheads separate the anchor compartment, sail locker and interior accommodation for safety and reassurance in the event of a collision.
The keel structure consists of a hot galvanised, high strength steel frame which forms an integral part of the hull structure. It is capable of absorbing loads from keel and mast as well as shock loads in the event of grounding. Integrated limber holes are positioned in order to allow water to run to the central keel bilge.
The keel structure also has an integrated single point centre hoist for easy and safe lifting and launching.
The keel consists of antimony hardened lead T-bulb bolted and glued to cast iron fin for high strength, low centre of gravity and comfortable sailing performance. The standard keel is 2.20 m.
Ballast weight with the standard keel is approximately 3,800 kg (8,380 lbs).
There are two optional keel drafts; shallow draft L-keel of 1.85 m and a deep draft T-bulb keel of 2.50 m is also available.
Each keel is encapsulated in three layers of CSM E-glass with epoxy matrix and faired to original keel section templates.
The keel is securely bolted to the structural steel keel frame with stainless steel bolts and faired.
The deck is a hand lay-up, full sandwich construction. The foam provides strength and insulation.
The deck uses a polyester resin system and the skins are mainly biaxial E-glass layers with local unidirectional reinforcements strategically positioned for strength. In load bearing areas, such as under deck fittings, either plywood or aluminium replaces the foam core.

platform, side decks and coach roof. Teak is nominally 9 mm thick and is laid using Sikaflex adhesive
