X-Yachts has posted a video tour of the 2006 model X-37, Vixen — one of many pre-owned and new yachts for purchase from the Dutch performance builder’s UK office at Hamble Point Marina.

Build number #65 was commissioned in 2006 and comes with a while hull with X-Yachts’ famous blue stripes, and a 2.3m L-shaped keel.

Other features include a standard aluminium, mast furling forestay, and race forestay option.

The cockpit is furnished in teak, as is the bathing platform (with white nonslip on side decks) and coachroof top.

Below decks, Vixen boasts two cabins with one heads, a classic layout with U-shaped galley and the owner’s berth forward.

Vixen has been owned three times previously, and the most recent owner based the boat in the Solent for short-handed cruises to the UK’s West Country, the Channel Islands and Brittany.

They added: “She is an elegant and very comfortable boat who looks after her crew in all conditions.”

Until current restrictions against coronavirus are relaxed to allow for in-person viewing, X-Yachts aims to provide more online video tours for a more in-depth look at its pre-owned and new yachts such as Vixen and the XC42 from 2014, Moonfish, which was presented earlier this month.

During the current movement restrictions, appraisal non-destruct surveys for pre-owned yachts (with no deposit payment) are being granted.

Purchase contracts can also be executed (both new or pre-owned) with a refundable deposit until yacht viewing or detailed survey where applicable.

#TRADE NEWS - Growing demand in the Middle East for pre-owned boats is creating a new market for yacht owners looking to sell, as UAE's The National reports.

This weekend's second-hand boat trade show at Dubai Creek Marina is expecting more than 7,000 visitors to peruse the more than 85 vessels on display, comprising the widest selection of boats for sale.

For this year the retail area has been expanded by 20% to make room for new retailers and exhibitors, including a new zone for personal water craft such as Jet Skis.

"There is a lot more demand [in the Middle East] for second-hand boats than new boats. The market has been growing, we have a lot of people from Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain who come to Dubai to buy a boat," said marina operations manager Abdulla Ali Al Noon.

It's a market that's being increasingly sought by Irish dealers, too, following MGM Boats' visit to the UAE for the Dubai International Boat Show this past St Patrick's weekend.

One of the companies participating in the pre-owned show this year is Al Marakeb Boat Manufacturing, whose Nour Al Sayyed says: "The crowd at the show are people who already know they're buying a boat, it's just a matter of picking one."

The National has more on the story HERE.
