The X-65 was conceived as a big sister to the hugely successful X-55; European Yacht of the Year 2007. She is also the little sister of the extremely fast and stylish IMX 70. The result is a sleek yet spacious performance cruiser. At every stage of design and production the focus has been to create a yacht that is easy to sail and utterly reliable. The X-65 embodies elegance and enjoyment in equal measure.
You do not need to sacrifice beauty to achieve practicality. When creating the X-65 the designers combined their experience with innovative new ideas to keep her lines clean while ensuring she is easy to handle. One of the optional foredeck arrangements typifies this intelligent approach. The anchor and bow roller stow neatly out of sight when berthed or at sea, and are launched on a hinged stainless steel arm, supported by a gas strut.
As well as a powered genoa furler, the foredeck can also house a powered gennaker furler to make sailing downwind both simple and safe.
Flush-mounted hatches, recessed fittings and frameless port-lights help keep the decks clear. All sheets and control lines are led beneath the deck or coachroof, again ensuring the elegant shape of the X-65 is uninterrupted.
The deck and coachroof has been cleverly designed to hide sheets, halyards and control lines out of view. This makes her not only a joy to behold, but also a safer boat to sail.
Whilst steering the X-65 you will find all that you need close at hand. Navigation equipment, auto pilot controls, instruments and gauges mounted on the pedestal are supported by repeaters at the mast. The communications equipment can be found with the engine control panel on the starboard side. The main and genoa sheets are just a step away, and the port halyard winch can be controlled electrically from the starboard console.
Transom stowage of tenders is an ideal option that has, until now, been reserved for much larger yachts. The X-65 sets a new standard in its class by incorporating a large garage space accessed from the stern. There is room for a 3.2m RIB that is perfect for exploring your new destination or just for some high-octane fun in the sun.
The X-65 has been designed and engineered in co-operation with some of the world’s most respected suppliers. Discontinuous rod rigging, with a hydraulic backstay, supports a three-spreader, tapered carbon mast with a ‘Park Avenue’ wing boom.
The use of heat galvanised steel to create a support structure for the mast and keel was pioneered by X-Yachts in 1981. Since then the Danish yard has produced more than 6,000 yachts featuring this technology and has won worldwide recognition for the strength of their designs.
Strength and stiffness are key features of the X-65 that features a steel structural girder, shown in yellow in the diagram. Longitudinal stringers (shown in red) add to the stiffness of the hull and ensure that the maximum performance can be achieved from the hull and rig.
One of the factors that set X-Yachts apart from other yachts is the importance given to keeping weight as low and central as possible. Batteries, water and fuel tanks, engine, generator and washing machine are all located centrally and low down. The result is a well-balanced yacht that is a pleasure to sail.
State-of-the-art design programmes and 3-D modelling is used to ensure remarkable accuracy and painstaking attention to detail. The use of the latest technology extends to the build of the X-65 with vacuum infusion, sandwich construction and honeycomb core panels and floorboards used throughout.
All the way through the X-65 you’ll find examples of clever and efficient installations: Whether it is the extremely lightweight and compact Volvo common rail diesel engine, powering a Flexofold propellor: The 24V gel batteries that offer weight, space, and power advantages over a 12V lead acid system: The ‘dry’ box built behind the main electrical panel where all cabling terminates: Or the variety of different materials used to insulate the machinery spaces, and the shock absorbers that each component is mounted on. Our design and production teams have the experience and knowledge to build a vessel fit for purpose in every way
