The restoration to original condition of X-79 #1, the first X-Yachts model produced some 40 years ago, has been completed by X-Yachts founding member Birger Hansen.

As reported in March, Birger and Lars Jeppersen travelled to the Channel Islands last summer to pick up their very first production boat — a gift from the UK and Ireland dealer team to celebrate the company’s 40th anniversary.

Birger began the restoration process last autumn with a number of partners involved.

And the work was completed in time for X-79 #1 to be present at the boatbuilders’ birthday celebration in tandem with the X-Yachts Gold Cup in Haderslev, Denmark earlier this month.

She will now take up residence in the X-Yachts showroom in Denmark, showcasing an important part of the company heritage and history.

In the early summer of 2018, Birger Hansen and Lars Jeppesen of X-Yachts picked up the very first model of the company’s debut boat, the X-79, from Jersey in the Channel Islands.

The boat — one of around only 500 made — was a gift to X-Yachts headquarters in Denmark from the UK and Ireland X-Yachts dealer team, who had been trying to secure the purchase of the boat for some years.

In autumn Birger began the refurbishing process with a number of partners, putting his vast knowledge and passion into revitalising what is a very unique piece of X-Yachts history.

And the six-month restoration process has been documented on the X-Yachts website, ahead of the boat’s unveiling during the company’s 40th anniversary celebrations this summer — which include the X-Yachts Gold Cup in Haderslev, Denmark from 7-9 June.

Earlier this week X-Yachts unveiled more details of its new X40 performance cruising yacht.
