Following her recent launch at X-Yachts headquarters in Denmark, the new X5⁶ performance cruiser was test-sailed for the first time this past weekend.

Among the crew for the coastal jaunt were X-Yachts chief executive Kræn Brinck Nielsen and the company’s director of design and engineering Thomas Mielec, along with chief designer Thorkil Munk-Hansen, project manager Nico Rode and technical manager John Morsing

In spite of cold and greyish weather, the crew’s enthusiasm was unmistakable, with the CEO declaring: “It was fantastic!”
