Formula 1 driver Kevin Magnussen has shared his dreams travelling the world by sail in a new video from X-Yachts, as he sails an Xc 38 from the Danish firm’s easy sailing Xcruising range.

The fellow Dane has long been a fan of the X-Yachts brand — indeed, his “best moment” in one of its yachts was with his wife, enjoying their honeymoon on board an X4⁶ for a week’s sailing around the Greek islands.

True to his racing driver nature, Magnussen is clear about his priorities in his perfect boat.

“What I look for in a boat is, of course, safety — then comfort and performance. I would say those two things don’t really go hand in hand in sailing … I feel like X-Yachts are a very good compromise of those two things.”

The Haas F1 Team driver also shares his excitement at X-Yachts’ new foray into the powerboat market.

Says Magnussen: “I’ll surely have a go in one and see what it’s like — go fishing, hopefully.”

X-Yachts will have a significant presence at the upcoming Southampton International Boat Show, with two UK premieres from its Pure X range.

Leading the class is the all new X4⁰, the latest model in the Pure X range — blending quality, performance and styling with cruising capability — which was recently put through its paces in sea trials.

The two-cabin, one-heads option will be on display and available for test sailing after the show.

Another UK premiere (on display in its three-cabin, two-heads version) will be the X4⁶, a versatile, fast family cruiser with a powerful sail plan and well proportioned cockpit that puts you at the centre of the sailing experience.
