Following its launch in November 2020, followed by an extensive test sailing period, X-Yachts celebrated the world premiere of the X5⁶ — the new sailing flagship of the Pure X Range, earlier this year.

Now the Danish luxury performance specialists have shared a new video showcase which goes in-depth on the X5⁶ and its uncompromising combination of speed, comfort and functionality.

Check out the video below:

While the current pandemic restrictions mean you can’t get to Denmark to see the X5⁶ in person, X-Yachts have launched a revamped version of its virtual tour so you can explore its spacious interior from anywhere in the world.

Also, be sure to check out the latest series of Know Your X-Yacht, in which the GB office highlights various aspects of the X-Yachts range and how to make the most of your yacht.

Pandemic concerns have prompted a change of plans for the launch of X-Yachts’ latest gem, the X-Power 33C — which will now be live-streamed in a virtual event this coming Saturday 16 January.

Tune in from 11.30am CET (10.30am Irish/UK time) to get a detailed look at ‘The Red Baron’ on the water. It represents the latest effort in X-Yachts’ foray into the powerboat market following the acquisition of HOC Yachts in late 2019.

Latecomers can catch up with a recorded version of the stream at the same link, and early next week X-Yachts will follow up with a video focused on the X5⁶ performance cruiser which wowed on its recent test sailings.

X-Yachts’ new X5⁶ performance cruiser has been launched for the first time.

First revealed at boot Düsseldorf in January, the 56-footer hit the water at X-Yachts’ headquarters in Haderslev, Denmark yesterday evening, Wednesday 25 November.

After rigging, in-water tests and adjustments of technical installations are completed, X-Yachts will conduct a thorough series of sea trials under the close supervision of the design and engineering team.

“We feel convinced that the X5⁶ will live fully up to our expectations,” said Thomas Mielec, director of design and engineering.

“But realistically and historically there will always be minor adjustments with a new model, first of its kind in the Pure X range, and we are eager to find all mistakes and points of improvement now, in order to have the corrections implemented as early as possible.”

Following sea trials, the first model X5⁶ will go back to the assembly hall for final fit-out of interiors and more to be ready for the world premiere in X-Yachts’ Haderslev showrooms.

Hot on the heels of the European Yacht of the Year award win for the X4⁰, X-Yachts have revealed at boot Düsseldorf that their new X5⁶ is planned launch in November this year ahead of the 2021 show.

Chief designer Niels Jeppesen said: “Having developed the X4⁰ in 2019, it was an easy decision for X-Yachts to decide to meet the market’s request to fill the gap between the X4⁹ and the X6⁵.”

The 56ft performance cruiser and latest addition to the Pure X range is designed with serious cruising in mind — whether exploring the Mediterranean or crossing the Atlantic.

‘Light, strip and stuff’ is the maxim behind the X5⁶ design philosophy: weight saved via epoxy infusion constriction is used to increase stability for supreme comfort on board.

And the Danish brand’s clean, timeless style is expectedly reflected in its luxury, high-quality interior.

The X5⁶ will be available in a variety of configurations and the first boats are expected to hit the water this year. For more details contact X-Yachts Ireland.
