X-Yachts has announced a presentation of the new X40 – the latest addition to the successful Pure X range.

In 2016, X-Yachts launched the new pure ‘X’ range which included the X43 and the X65. In 2018, X-Yachts launched two additional models, the X49 and the X46.

This range was exceptionally well received by both press and clients with approximately 120 yachts sold in the first two years, so it seemed the natural choice to design and develop yet another model.

The X range incorporates the best elements from both the X cruising range and the X–performance range into one beautifully designed performance cruiser capable of delivering Superior Sailing
Pleasure.

"The X range incorporates the best elements from both the X cruising range and the X performance range"

The all-new X40 is a forty-foot performance cruising yacht and will thus be the smallest model in the pure X range; blending quality, performance and styling with cruising capability.

The X40 contains the DNA of the other models in the Pure X range: a fast and comfortable yacht which is easily managed, a clean and functional deck layout, sleek, elegant lines, and a spacious and
modern interior rich with clean lines and luxurious finishes, all contained within a small, affordable package.

In the X40 all weight saved is used to increase the yacht’s stability enabling the crew to have a more relaxed time and to feel safer and more comfortable. The Pure X models are for those who want to
be on board the most modern and comfortable hybrid between those two extremes.

New and innovative feature

Design Director Niels Jeppesen explains: “One of the details we have spent months perfecting is the entrance washboard system. Instead of a traditional lifting/lowering washboard system, we have designed a pair of side-hinged doors which work nicely to conceal the halyards and trim lines in the purpose-built halyard recesses either side of the entrance. We haven’t seen this anywhere else, and we believe that we have perhaps once again created a unique new feature”.

Interior layout

The X40 will initially be offered in a 2-cabin layout, but from 2020 we will add a 3-cabin layout to the model configurations. The two-cabin layout has a double cabin aft to port, and the three-cabin layout
will forego the aft sail locker and add a double cabin to starboard. We have worked hard to create an interior which feels vast, in spite of its compact size. The interior comes standard in Nordic Oak veneers with teak laminate on floorboards. All veneers are hand selected in Italy by our specialists by one of the most exclusive suppliers for the marine market for high-quality yachts.

Launch date?

The X40 is currently under full development and is expected to launch early Summer 2019 for sea trials and testing.
