Arguably one of THE most competitive X-41 OD’s out there. Top finishes in countless regattas with some of the world’s best sailors in her crew. Maintained and upgraded regardless of cost and perfectly suited to serious regatta campaigns, competitive club racing, or just fast family cruising. A very special boat!
FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
With just one owner since 2009 and having found the podium at pretty much every major inshore and offshore regatta she has entered; this stunning yacht is a fantastic example of the classic one-design racer/cruiser from X-Yachts in Denmark. Some of her most notable racing results include:-
• 2020 – ORC Italian Offshore Championships – Bronze Medal • 2018 – ORC Italian Offshore Championships – Silver Medal • 2016 – ORC Italian Offshore Championships – Gold Medal • 2014 – Italian X-41 Championships – Silver Medal • 2013 – European X-41 Championships – Silver Medal • 2013 – World X-41 Championships – Silver Medal • 2012 – Italian X-41 Championships – Silver Medal • 2011 – ORC Italian Offshore Championships – Gold Medal • 2010 – European X-41 Championships – Silver Medal • 2009 – Italian X-41 Championships – Bronze Medal
Away from the regatta circuit, the yacht has also been used for summer cruising with family friends and benefits from a full cruising interior in addition to cruising sail wardrobe, removable genoa furler and removable electric anchor windlass. A true ‘do it all’ performance racer/cruiser from one of the most respected marques in the yachting industry.
“DESIGN: The X-41 is something very special. Never before has a one-design yacht seized the imagination of sailors all round the globe with such speed. The demand from the international sailing community has been unprecedented and 70 of these sleek racers were purchased within 18 months of the design’s launch in 2006. The class continues to grow with the same pace that the X-41 shows on the water. ISAF recognition can only accelerate the popularity of this thrilling design. X-Yachts has a special magic when it comes to the creation of one-designs. The X-79 and X-99 led the way and the X-35, launched in 2005, quickly established classes in more than fifteen countries and has held ISAF-approved World Championships since 2007.
The X-41 is the latest thoroughbred to leave the stable. She is designed to perform under both ORCi and IRC, in addition to one-design racing. She also boasts a beautifully crafted interior and is a comfortable boat to cruise.
Be careful! Sail one of these exciting and adaptable yachts and you may discover that life is not complete without an X-41.
PERFORMANCE: The X-41 has sparkling performance. The long hull length, low centre of gravity and T-keel create a yacht that is stiff and strong. The carbon mast and boom, coupled with a non-overlapping headsail, allow great responsiveness and a choice of rig and deck gear allows owners to create a racer/cruiser to suit their style. This is a modern and efficient sailing machine and being aboard is a thrilling experience.
Owning an X-41 opens doors to a world of competition and adventure. Impressive IRC and ORCi performance is coupled with a one-design racing that continues to attract the most discerning owners. Some of the world’s best sailors are drawn to an ever-evolving calendar of events that takes in many of Europe’s premiere competitions.
Away from the racecourse the X-41 can show a softer side in cruising mode. Expect quick passage times while enjoying the simple, elegant interior.”

“Alan Andrews details the reasons why /SW/’s Boat of the Year judges declared this versatile racer, “Best Crossover.”
“X-Yachts’ new 41-foot racer is the boat with which you do anything and everything. With stellar performance, clean design, and attention to detail in its hardware, construction, it was a standout in a crowded field of crossover designs, boats as well suited for racing as they are for cruising…
…The helm on this boat feels great; smooth with no friction in the Jefa rudder bearings and steering components controlled with a 67-inch carbon wheel. Upwind there is a touch of weather helm pressure to keep the helmsman happy and in touch with the boat’s feel. The helmsman has terrific visibility from the weather side with the jib tell-tales, oncoming waves, and up-course breeze all visible. Downwind the helm is again light and responsive, but also positive…
…The interior of the X-41 will work well for distance as well as day racing. Aft on each side of the boat, under the cockpit, are double berths with pipe berths. The mid-cabin settee/berths sleep another body to weather on hinged platforms. For the serious racer, the cabin table pulls off its base, revealing a stainless steel tube that now serves as a grab bar/divider to keep the headsails where they are stowed instead of in a pile to leeward…
…X-Yachts have paid a lot of attention to both the broad-brush concept and also to details with the X-41. They have a combination of hull shape, keel, rudder, and rig that sails as a raceboat should, is relatively easy to keep in the groove, and is winning races. The sail-handling areas and interior work well, and many hardware details add to the mix.”
