Very rare to the market, Mk2 X-Yachts Xc 45 from May 2016. Just two private owners since new and extensively fitted out for trans-Atlantic and High-Latitudes sailing complete with desirable in-boom furling and benefitting from over Euro 400,000 in options and recent upgrades.
FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
ABUNDANCE represents a unique opportunity to acquire an immediately available, EU VAT paid, Mk 2 ‘Next Generation’ example of the European Yacht of the Year winning Niels Jeppesen designed X-Yachts Xc 45. Launched in May 2016, ABUNDANCE was originally ordered by her original owner as a replacement for his Hallberg-Rassy 412 and fitted out specifically to take part in the World Cruising Club’s 2016 ARC where she finished 35th out of circa 150 monohull entrants.
Following her sale by Grabau International to her current owner in 2020, ABUNDANCE was further updated, upgraded and refitted to prepare the boat for planned high-latitudes sailing, adding approx. Euro 200,000 in investment in addition to the Euro 200,000+ in additional options fitted at build. Combined, this makes ABUNDANCE arguably one of the most complete 45ft performance bluewater cruising yachts on the market today.
Her specification highlights include:- • Standard 2.20m keel • Epoxy system to hull • Yanmar 4JH80 engine with Flex-o-Fold propeller, additional oil cooler and NMEA2000 engine data integration to plotters • 3-cabin, 2-heads classic layout in full teak with dedicated forward-facing chart table and L-shaped • galley • Teak side decks • Dessalator Duo 100 24vDC/220vAC watermaker • 6kw Fisher Panda generator • Solar panels with Victron Bluetooth MPPT • Upgraded battery charger with 2kw inverter • Retractable 24vDC bowthruster • Electric main halyard winch • Electric mainsheet winches • Furlerboom in-boom furling system • Fully serviced and overhauled standing rigging • Elvstrom Hydranet battened mainsail • Elvstrom cable-free furling Code Zero with Karver furler • Furling staysail • Carbon fibre spinnaker poles • Upgraded Raymarine instrument package including doppler radar and twin Axiom Pro 12” chart plotters & AIS • FLIR spreader-mounted thermal imaging camera • Fusion multimedia centre with Bose speakers • LED TV in saloon with Apple 4k TV • PepWave DOME LTE 4G antenna HD2 and internet router • Leather upholstery in saloon • Additional front-opening refrigerator plus large top-opening freezer • Washing machine • Electric heads • 16,000 BTU air-conditioning in saloon • 24vDC ventilation fans • Curved windscreen with sprayhood • Bimini • Removeable dinghy davits • Dinghy & outboard • Carbon passarelle
Sadly, her current owner’s plans for high latitudes cruising were never realised and instead ABUNDANCE has been cruised during summer months around the Eastern Mediterranean where she has been professionally maintained at all times. Now located in Palmero, Sicily, ABUNDANCE remains under professional guardinage care and is ideally located for onward adventures East or West.

One of the main differences between the Xperformance line and the new Xcruising line is the hull design. The Xc line, with its deeper hull sections, provides a greater interior volume for tanks, and other essential cruising equipment; a feature which also provides smoother sailing in all weathers.
The Xc 45 is designed and developed for long-distance cruising, incorporating the most significant X-Yachts qualities: powerful main engine in a well-insulated compartment, with a 3-bladed folding propeller; large fuel and fresh water tankage, all strategically located low and central in the yacht for optimum weight distribution; an immensely strong steel hull girder frame, taking the loads from the composite lead/cast iron keel as well as from the keel stepped mast.
The prominent feature of the deck is a clean, uncluttered layout with flush mounted, openable deck hatches and stainless steel dorades for optimum ventilation. The sail cabin on the foredeck accommodates space for the asymmetric spinnaker, fenders and the optional bow ladder, and provides good access to the anchor locker.
To access the swimming platform, the transom is hinged down into a horizontal position, whilst the aft deck is lowered to create a walkway. A combination of electronically operated actuators, struts and springs makes the transformation between closed and open cockpit an effortless task. Also integrated into the platform is a bathing ladder and a shower unit.
All sail handling is executed from the cockpit. Halyards, reefing and control lines are led to the winches on the coach roof; the mainsail sheet is led to dedicated winches at the helm. The main sail track has been moved out of the cockpit in front of the sprayhood, providing an uncluttered cockpit with free passage throughout.
The helmsman’s position provides an excellent view forward both during sailing and while manoeuvering in the harbour. The control instrument console ensures a good view of the navigation instruments and is also a secure handhold when moving around while sailing.
