The Xcruising range was X-Yachts’ first step in the direction of an out-and-out cruising yacht, but has she stood the test of time? Graham Snook sailed an XC42 to find out

Product Overview

Danish brand X-Yachts has built an enviable reputation for making quality racing yachts for more than 40 years.

In 2008, it took a gamble and launched the Xcruising range with the XC45 . In doing so, it proved it could make quality, comfortable cruising yachts with a turn of speed.

The XC45 won European Yacht of the Year in 2009, and later the same year the XC42 was launched.

Andrew and Karen Hunt bought their XC42 in 2011, but the condition of Freya means you’d be forgiven if you thought you had turned to the pages of a new boat test by accident.

She is immaculate. If it wasn’t for the polished off satin varnish on the wooden fiddles around the yacht, and the aroma that the boat heads acquire (from the shower drain), she could have come out of the X-Yachts factory yesterday.

While the XC range was aimed at cruising – with their tankage low down for great stability, a fuller hull with increased rocker for a more spacious interior, and deeper V-shaped forward sections for greater comfort – they still had the performance gene, and appeal to the type of sailor (with deep pockets) who comes from racing or who enjoys sailing.

On our test in Chichester Harbour, the true wind was rarely above 10 knots, but she still bowled along at 6-7 knots and felt delightful on the wheel.

Andrew grew up sailing with his father, who’d owned a succession of yachts: ‘I used that knowledge to find what I wanted out of a boat, so we’ve only owned two boats.’

Karen hadn’t sailed before meeting Andrew. ‘Luckily I took to it,’ she smiles. ‘And I had to learn horse riding,’ laughs Andrew.

‘We couldn’t afford a house,’ says Andrew, ‘so we lived in Karen’s flat and bought the Moody instead.’

They owned the Moody 336 for 21 years before buying Freya in 2011.

The X Factor

They were drawn to X-Yachts as Karen is half Danish, so a yacht from Denmark held a certain appeal.

‘I didn’t know enough about Faurby , the other Danish builder, at the time, but they didn’t have interior volume,’ confesses Andrew.

They looked further north to Sweden, to Arcona and Najad , but there wasn’t a boat that offered the same mixture of speed and comfort; they could find quality fast boats or cruisers but the XC42 combined the elusive mixture.

They also wanted what Andrew called a ‘cruising draught’ – one of less than 1.83m (6ft) so Freya was ordered with a shallow keel giving her a 1.70m/5ft 7in draught.

Launched in 2011, Freya was hull number 53 of 78 MkI XC42s. The XC42 went out of production in 2018.

‘The dealership has really made a difference, they have been wonderful,’ explains Andrew.

The couple also enjoy the active owners’ association. ‘We have rallies away and the racing is good, although I might be a bit more competitive than some,’ laughs Andrew.

She’s proven to be a solid performer for the couple, even in light winds , which was just as well given the sub-10-knot wind from the north-east on the day of our test.

The couple has sailed around 25,000 miles in her and cruised the Baltic, Brittany and the West Country.

Their son was 10 when they bought the yacht and he was onboard when they delivered her from the Baltic to the Solent .

They sailed back to the Baltic three years ago with just two onboard – the heads seacocks needed replacing under warranty and the chance to sail back to Denmark and visit family was an opportunity they had to take advantage of.

Karen and Andrew handle Freya with the reassuring air of an experienced couple who’ve sailed a lot together and are wholly familiar with their boat.

With the aid of the electric halyard winch – to port of the companionway – the main was up in no time.

XC42: responsive sailing

On the water, Freya had plenty of grip and was quick to accelerate in the puffs.

With such light winds, I wasn’t expecting much, but at 120° AWA she was making 4.7-5.4 knots in 5-6 knots AWS (10 knots TWS) further off; dead downwind with 10-12 knots TWS she was making around 5 knots.

The width constraints of Chichester Channel became more apparent as we went on a beam reach (making 6 knots in around 8 knots of breeze), then onto a fetch and close-hauled, the apparent wind increasing above 10 knots meant her speed didn’t drop below 6 knots and she made over 7 at 30° AWA.

She tacked beautifully and the helm was responsive without being twitchy.

As Karen pointed out, ‘Just because you cruise, it doesn’t mean you have to sail slowly.’

Freya ’s cockpit is broad enough for comfort but doesn’t feel like the shallow, wide racing soap dish or a Med port hopper; it feels deep, safe and comfortable thanks, in part, to the central cockpit table.

The genoa is handled by 58ST Andersen winches, while the mainsheet (led under the deck), spinnaker sheets and halyards are led to 46ST winches.

All the winches have the wiring for them to be converted to electric at a later date, if required.

Her cockpit might not be wide, but she still has twin wheels, mainly for better views outboard and easier access from the electrically operated fold-down transom.

On the MkII version (hull #78-99) the width of the bathing platform was extended and a liferaft locker was added under the access step into the cockpit.

All the cockpit locker lids are supported by gas struts; the exception is on the lid forward, just abaft of the cascade washboard, on the rope locker, or the ‘snake pit’, as Karen calls it.

All the running rigging was replaced by Marlow Ropes recently, which does a lot to smarten up her appearance as well as making everything a lot smoother.

The cockpit and hull sides are polished twice a year and she also has a winter cover to protect the deck which, if her looks are anything to go by, was an excellent investment.

The use of teak, stainless steel and the polished window surrounds on the coachroof add to her appeal. Credit: Graham Snook

She still carries her original North Sails which are going strong.

Andrew has found the mast steps are essential to detach the mainsail halyard as it stops some way short of the deck once it’s on the boom.

They have considered going to an in-boom furling system, but they are unconvinced and are looking at other sail handling solutions.

Teak in abundance

The decks have a deep solid toe rail, outboard is a stainless-steel rub-rail and on top is a thick teak capping rail.

The teak here, on the deck, coachroof, in the cockpit and on the coamings, and the generous use of stainless steel (grab rails, chunky roller-fairleads and rub rails) and the polished window surrounds add to her row-away factor.

Forward, she has a stainless-steel framed bowsprit that houses the anchor .

Saloon of the XC42

The quality of the material and craftsmanship means Freya is in excellent condition after 10 years. Credit: Graham Snook

A windlass is forward of the chain locker, and the chain locker is divided with the chain forward and hull-depth stowage for fenders aft.

There’s a pretty tuck to the aft sections of the hull, more teardrop than the modern bullet-shaped hulls we see nowadays; the trade-off is the narrower aft berths.

Down below, you’re greeted by teak with a prominent horizontal grain pattern; it’s all reminiscent of the warm, familiar feel of Danish furniture.

The saloon has a small table for drinks on the XC42

There is lots of visible wood and it’s all lovely. There’s great detailing with the use of routed lines, vents and lots of curved corners.

A wooden grab rail blends in and runs the length of the saloon at deck level. Above, the windows all open and are recessed, cleanly hiding the blinds from sight.

Although 10 years old, the condition of the wood was remarkable. Part of this is down to the materials and finish X-Yachts employed, but Andrew’s secret is coloured wax wood repair sticks.

Chart table on the XC42

Any nick or damage is simply hidden and sealed before moisture can make it worse. High wear areas have lost their satin finish to a glossy patina.

At the bottom of the companionway, there’s a large J-shaped galley to port; its shape offers good bracing. The inboard longitudinal sink faces outboard.

The orientation is a little peculiar. The MKII had the sink athwartships so the cook is forward-facing whilst using it.

The orientation of Freya ‘s sink is unconventional. Credit: Graham Snook

Instead, when Freya ’s cook is facing forward, they have a large Corian work surface and glass splashback in front of them.

The stove and top-opening fridge are outboard; above them is very good down lighting (beneath deck level) that makes cooking at night a shadow-free affair.

There is a line of vertically-hinged lockers outboard and two more ‘floating’ lockers forward, which came as standard on Freya .

The bin isn’t the most convenient place for those cooking – it’s in the inboard locker, opposite the chart table – it does, however, make it easy for the rest of the crew to use.

Forward cabin on the XC42

The saloon has L-shaped seating to port, a central island seat (providing inboard seating for those at the table and excellent stowage for provisions) and a long straight bench seat outboard to starboard.

At the forward end of the seating is a handy fiddled unit forward. Stowage is accessed by removing the seatback.

One excellent feature is the central cushion back, to starboard, which hinges down and on the back is a small table suitable for cards or drinks.

Above the seating, there are more wonderful examples of craftsmanship and Danish styling. There is a fiddled shelf on each side.

These typify a familiar theme throughout the boat: X-Yachts haven’t made things the easiest way, but have made them in a way that looks good and is practical.

At either end of these shelves are lockers, there are vertical vents on the rounded corner posts and where they meet the lower fiddle they blend into it.

The fiddles are a wooden rail held up by vertical stainless-steel rods which, unlike a solid fiddle, allow for the contents to be seen whilst still retaining them.

Above the shelves is a hull window formed with an X shape across it. This same arrangement can be found in the forward cabin above the berth.

The forward cabin has a 2.2m-long berth.

It is so long that the owners sleep with their heads forward and have their pillows 40cm from the forward bulkhead to get shoulder room; even so, they still have a 1.83m-long berth.

There are reading lights at both ends of the berth, which were added by Andrew and Karen.

There’s a useful seat aft of the berth and an en suite heads and shower, to port.

The base of the mast is hidden in a locker forward.

The chart table is a good size and has a handy separate lid for odds and ends outboard of the main lid for chart access.

It’s surrounded by high fiddles, but the chart storage isn’t the deepest at 45mm (2in).

Outboard is a switch panel with good quality switches and neat wiring behind it. There’s storage in the seat and the column of drawers beneath the table.

Engine access is good, although the space from the cascade washboard does remove space from the top.

The rear of the engine can be accessed to replace the saildrive leg seal, but it is a bit awkward.

Andrew has also had to change the rudder bearing, which has to be done every 6-7 years, depending on use. There is a heads to starboard abaft of the chart table.

It has a forward-facing toilet and a pull-out shower nozzle. Aft are two double cabins.

The starboard cabin is slightly narrow, having lost space to the heads and 5cm (2in) from the space between cabins, which is wide enough for a generator.

In contrast, the port aft cabin has much more room and a 1.51m-wide berth that’s over 2m long.

The corner of the fiddled shelf is rounded, both inside the shelf and outside, which prevents things from getting lost in the corners.

But it’s the details that I relished; the way the wood has been shaped and curved where one piece meets the next, the thick dark veneer edging strips around every cupboard door and drawer, the labelling of the wiring, the stainless-steel inserts for the screws that secure the floorboards.

These are the details you can see.

Having visited the X-Yachts factory, I know there are others; the steel frame that takes the loads from the keel and mast, the way every through-hull fitting is faired smooth, the lead bulb on the cast iron fin.

None of these are easy or cheap, but X-Yachts know its owners value the results.

The couple have no plans for another boat, and it’s easy to see why.

Not only is Freya like new, but they know her inside out. They might go a bit smaller one day, but it depends on how long they can keep sailing Freya .

Expert Opinion on the XC42

Nick Vass B,Sc B,Ed HND FRINA MCMS DipMarSur YS, Marine Surveyor www.omega-yachtservices.co.uk

I have found rudder problems on two X-yachts that I have recently surveyed.

One was a 2003-built X43 and the other was a 2012-built XP44.

In both cases, the rudder blade had cracked apart because the aluminium rudder stock had corroded and expanded.

The XC42 uses the same make of rudder and so it is well worth checking the stock for evidence of corrosion .

Copper in conventional antifouling paint could be the culprit as it is a dissimilar metal to the anodic aluminium stock, and has been known to cause a reaction.

The trick is to apply copper-free antifouling such as Trilux to the hull and rudder around the stock. This can be done easily as Trilux or similar would be applied to the aluminium saildrive leg anyway.

As far as I am aware all XC42s were built with white gelcoat topsides as I believe they were intended to be cruised in hot climates.

Nick Vass

However, I have found print-through on dark-hulled X-Yachts. Print-through is caused by the gelcoat continuing to cure and shrink once it has been exposed to hot sunshine.

The gelcoat contracts and the pattern of the glass fibre cloth shows through the coating. XC42s have teak decks.

Teak wears out and is expensive to replace so make sure to check the wood thoroughly.

Between 2009-2018, 99 XC42s were built making them something of a rarity so they don’t come on the second-hand market often.

Ben Sutcliffe-Davies, Marine Surveyor and full member of the Yacht Brokers Designers & Surveyors Association (YDSA) www.bensutcliffemarine.co.uk

The XC42 has been developed from the pedigree of X-Yachts racing vessels, and for those who want a performance cruising yacht, I don’t believe she will disappoint.

The production run was from about 2009 to 2018, with several improvements in the craft in 2014.

Like all good racing yachts, the XC42’s mast is keel stepped; it’s important to see the condition of the deck around the collar and ensure it’s not damaged.

The mast step condition is also equally important to look at to check for any signs of developing corrosion.

The rig is normally rod rigging and, while the rod can be good for 20 years, the ball/foot does need to be properly inspected or re-made about every five years.

The keel is a combination of iron and lead encapsulated in an epoxy E-glass sheath; it’s important to ensure that it is undamaged, with no obvious corrosion staining.

Check the galvanised framing for corrosion too by going through the bilges. Pay attention to areas where water can become trapped.

The rudder is GRP with an alloy stock. It is important that good galvanic protection is provided.

If using shore power, a galvanic isolator should be fitted. Look carefully at any exposed rudder stock and ensure there are no pits developing.

When checking over the engine, make sure you pay attention to the rubber gaiter on the Volvo Penta Saildrive.

If it is over seven years old, it’s generally recommended to replace it.

Alternatives to the XC42 to consider

Few boats offer speed and a quality interior, but the Swedish-built Arcona 430 does, and she leans more towards performance than the XC42.

She is quick, responsive and a joy to sail for the helm, and comfortable for the crew both on deck and below.

Originally built with a single wheel that dominated the aft end of the cockpit, later models had twin wheels.

Her sail handling is well thought out and works well, whether you’re sailing fully crewed or shorthanded , although after sailing the XC42, her cockpit would feel more exposed as the cockpit is shallower with a cockpit table that lowers into the cockpit sole.

This leaves the cockpit open, which is better for performance sailing.

Like the XC42, the Arcona 430 has a galvanised steel frame to take the loads from the lead keel, and keel-stepped mast.

Her interior layout is similar: an L-shaped galley had the option of a practical rounded return, and the owner has an en suite head forward.

The saloon has U-shaped seating to port with a bench seat to starboard: the curved cushion ends robbed a bit of the saloon seating length for those sleeping.

The second heads is by the companionway. Despite her racy looking exterior, her interior is of high quality with lots of solid wood and well-considered mahogany joinery.

Her interior volume is less than the XC42.

Where the 430 slightly pips the X-Yacht is with quality of fit-out in a few areas – thicker, chunkier woodwork – and her performance, but the XC42 wins in other areas for the cruising sailor: cockpit, larger galley, interior flair and practicality.

The Arcona 430 is a performance-cruiser in every sense, whether you want to cruise with speed and style, or throw her around the racecourse then relax in comfort afterwards; she can be all you want her to be and more.

With a bit more budget you could consider the newer Arcona 435, which has been designed from the outset with twin wheels and a wide cockpit to accommodate them, tweaked performance and still a delight to sail.

The Saare 41cc centre cockpit was launched in 2008, with the aft cockpit version following a few years later in 2012.

It shared the same hull design (including keel and rudder) and rig, but gone were the raised centre cockpit and large double aft cabin, replaced instead by the option of a single aft cabin (to port) or two double cabins.

The larger, lower aft cockpit made sail handling easier, reduced the motion and increased the shelter.

With a teak deck, the Estonian Saare shares many visual similarities with the XC42, including a similar overall style, solid toe rails capped with thick teak, metal-framed windows and oversized stainless-steel mooring gear on deck.

Unlike the XC she has a single wheel and a slightly boxier coachroof appearance.

Her hull gives her a good turn of speed, while a lead keel adds stiffness and absorbs energy in the rock-hitting that goes on in Northern Baltic waters.

It was possible to have a layout identical to the XC42, but Saare chose to offer customers the option of custom layouts and finishes to allow owners to choose the layout that best suited their needs.

Her interior has a similar J-shaped galley with the sink inboard and a large work surface for food preparation.

The level of finish is very good too, and undoubtedly rivals that of the majority of Scandinavian boatyards.

While the Saare yacht lacks the level of detail and style that the XC42 possesses in spades, she undeniably offers much of what the XC42 has at a lesser price.

Sunbeam 42.1

The Sunbeam 42.1 offers at least two things that neither the Arcona nor the XC42 can; a centre cockpit and a large double aft cabin.

Unlike the XC42, she, like the other alternatives, is still available as a new build – the smallest current XC is the XC45.

The quality of the Sunbeam’s woodwork and joinery was above that of mass-produced boats – not that it’s possible to find a mass-produced 42ft centre-cockpit yacht of course!

Her inventory included some pricey items such as in-mast furling, windlass, oversized genoa sheet winches, teak deck and cockpit.

But she also came with many details which make using a boat less stressful; cockpit lighting, an exhaust temperature alarm and automatic engine room lighting, to name but a few.

She might not have the performance or sailing delight of the XC/Arcona, but she’s not pretending to be anything other than a long-distance comfortable cruiser.

That said, she’s no slouch; she errs around the same distance to comfort that the Arcona does performance.

Her centre cockpit is sheltered and both sets of sheet winches are within easy reach of the helm.

The genoa winches are in line with the wheel, making it ideal if you’re left ‘helm alone’.

The aft cabin, the centre cockpit boat’s raison d’être, doesn’t disappoint either.

It’s a homely haven waiting to travel.

The under-berth stowage, wardrobes and lockers are ideal for long-distance cruising.

Her interior finish may not meet the standards of her Scandinavian rivals, but neither does her price tag.

X-Yacht Xc42

Well known for their race yachts, x-yachts is now offering a range of fast cruisers.

LIKES - Overall build quality - Lively performance - Sensible and functional deck layout - Oozes style

DISLIKES - Rather narrow coamings for the steerer - Cramped workroom/office

OVERVIEW -- A cruiser with pedigree X-Yachts is known for its quality performance yachts but in recent years the Danish builder has increased market share by creating a cruising range and the latest boat, the Xc42, is a premium bluewater cruiser with an impressive list of credentials. This includes Dorade vents, wooden bulwarks and lavish use of quality teak on the topsides; all contained in a classic-looking yet spacious hull. This retro styling greatly softens the voluminous hull with snub-nosed bow and beam carried aft to a wide transom which makes for an aesthetically pleasing mix of form and function. The result is intended to be a fast passage-making blue water cruiser.

PRICE AND EQUIPMENT - You get what you pay for The level of equipment (rod rigging, Andersen deck gear, near-customised overall finish throughout) puts the Xc-42 price tag of $665,000 well above that of the mass-production fleet but the discerning bluewater sailor will be rewarded. The Xc-42 cockpit is clearly built around the helmsman with twin wheels right beside the primary Andersen 58ST winches, plus mainsheet 46STs just ahead and a centre instrument console incorporated in the solid teak fold-down table. Being a cruising boat the pleasures of enjoying a quiet anchorage are well taken care of thanks to the fold-down electric transom and pushpit teak seating. Seating in the cockpit is again teak clad and deeply recessed, so combined with a slightly elevated coachroof bulkhead for the recessed dodger, it gives good weather protection; and raising the canvas dodger when in cruise mode seals the area off effectively. It also protects the sturdy alloy Spinlock jammers for the halyards on both sides of the companionway which are controlled by Andersen 46STs and includes the lines for the mainsail track nearby. Located away from the cockpit, the mid-boom sheeting has necessitated X-Yachts fitting a large spar to ensure integrity of the mainsail shape. Like nearly all fittings on the Xc-42, the spars are oversized, so should survive a few Chinese gybes when tradewind sailing. Views forward are free of obstructions, including gutters for the headsail sheets, which keep the wide decks clear. Separate quadrants are used on the Edson cable steering system and power controls are on the starboard coaming.  Locker space is voluminous with four in total and the starboard cockpit locker is accessed from the main cabin via a small door as well as the gas-strutted topside opening, and showing X-Yachts' typical attention to detail the area is floored with marine ply and could easily accommodate a six man life raft. Cockpit instrumentation on the review boat included a Raymarine E90 main console plotter but readouts can also be fitted above the companionway. LAYOUT AND ACCOMMODATION - Different layouts available Below decks on the Xc-42 there are several variations apart from the standard three-cabin layout that has two symmetrical aft berths and an owner’s suite forward. Our review boat came with one aft cabin and a small (and rather cramped) office space in the other. While applauding this idea, often requested by cruising couples, the already-low ceiling is heavily encroached by the cockpit sole. However, storage space is good with three drawers, cupboard and under-desk space -- ideal for a laptop -- as well. A simple fold-down seat adjoins it but doesn’t really allow desk work. Over on the port quarter the guest cabin is functional with a tall locker and plenty of leg room, though natural light isn’t fantastic. Cruising couples should enjoy the owner’s suite forward which uses the hull volume well with plenty of height and natural light. The spacious V-berth has an insert which can be removed to give more space and the foam mattress felt comfortable when I sunk my 70kg frame into it. Traditional fiddles along the sides give a classic feel while quality details such as the ventilated wardrobe and rich lustre of the teak woodwork reminded me strongly of the Swan 60 I was on a earlier this year. The ensuite moulded bathroom area has a manual toilet with separate shower cubicle and plenty of strategically-placed halogen lights for easy ablutions, though the more efficient LEDs would have been preferable. An adjoining bulkhead also stylishly hides the keel-stepped mast. The main saloon confirms the classic ethos of this boat with deep lustrous teak veneers throughout, though cream bulkheads are available (but wouldn’t be my preference after seeing images of this look). The area is dominated by the portside dinette with wraparound seating and an island bench with under storage adjoining a rectangular table, also with central storage (ideal for wine). Opposite, the longitudinal lounge area has a useful drop-down coffee table. The synthetic suede cushion coverings felt both soft yet robust. Behind the lounge, the navigation station again should keep traditionalists happy with its full-sized chart table and outlying bulkhead cupboard that could house electronics. But others may prefer to replace it with an optional shower unit, creating a multipurpose area with extra bulkhead space for plotters and other smarts. Over in the U-shaped galley a three-burner Eno stove/oven (with optional matching microwave) should keep the crew fed while perishables are well taken care of in the 140-litre chest fridge. The review boat also had the optional front-opening fridge as well. Other options include a dishwasher. Dual sinks and oodles of cupboard storage complete a very functional space with genuine Corian worktops. Powering everything is a substantial four-cylinder 55hp Volvo Penta saildrive with three-blade folding propeller. It was so quiet that I actually had to check it was running. Engine access is on three sides and all the main servicing points -- impellor, oil and water -- can be easily reached from the saloon. Fuel supply is generous at 250 litres in a fully-baffled alloy tank and includes an analogue gauge. Onboard AC power requirements can be met as there’s space behind the engine for a generator and stored power is via two AGM 130ah batteries securely fastened under the starboard lounge settee plus an engine battery, a 55ah in the bilge. A flip-up control panel at the navigation station  shows a straight-forward wiring setup which should aid fault finding and additional system integration.

MECHANICAL, HULL AND RIG - Built for strength The deck layout on the Xc-42 is an effective mix of contemporary and classic with recessed smoked glass hatches, polished stainless framed windows and swivelling Dorade vents. Crew protection is excellent thanks to the elevated toe rail, 1.25-inch diameter stanchions and long handrails on the teak-clad coachroof. Moving to the pulpit the anchor setup (20kg Delta with 50m of 10mm chain) uses a 1500W Quick vertical windlass which sits on the deck (rather than being protected under a cover). Handily, it also can be operated manually as well as being managed by the remote control unit. Beside it, double rollers and an optional A-Frame was fitted on the review boat. This allows easy deployment of a cruising chute or asymmetric spinnaker. Alongside it sat the roller-furling headsail unit. On the review boat a 108 per cent genoa was fitted but a 140 per cent is available, as is a self-tacker. The double-spreader rig is substantial with a large diameter keel-stepped John Mast alloy spar and heavy-duty rectangular boom. It’s held up by  rod rigging attached to enormous chain plates, heavily glassed into the hull. A Y-shaped backstay with hydraulic adjuster and larger diameter vang finish off a sturdy rig. The review boat came with slab reefed North Sails Dacron sails, a simple sail plan which is ideal for blue-water voyaging but in-boom reefing is an option. For the hull X-Yachts has continued with their use of a galvanised steel frame glassed into the GRP foam sandwich outer skin. This well proven build is designed to absorb loads from the mast, rigging and keel. The keel uses a lead bulb on a cast iron shaft, thereby keeping the weight low and resulting in a high ballast ratio of 45 per cent. Overall, hull shape is fairly contemporary with little overhangs and plenty of beam aft. But underneath X-Yachts has deviated somewhat from their traditional Performance and Racing ranges. The Xc range, which now comprises the newly-launched 38 along with the 42, 45 and 50 have deeper V-shaped hulls unlike the more slippery U-shaped hulls of their performance brethren.

ON THE WATER - Loves the light airs Out on the upper reaches of Sydney Harbour I gunned the very quiet Volvo engine towards the narrows between the shores at the mouth of the Parramatta River as we searched for wind pressure, noting 8.1 nots of boat speed as the motor spun at 2500rpm. Finding about seven knots of pressure we hoisted the North Sails mainsail thanks to low-friction Harken Switch Track Battcars which then only required a brief tug of the underdeck headsail reefing line to get all plain sail aloft. The Xc 42 needed little encouragement and sped off, clearly happy with the seven knot breeze as I found my seat on the windward coaming, which felt a bit narrow even for my bony derriere. The balanced helm felt lovely with enough feel and reach to allow concentration on the headsail telltales with occasional glances at the mast-top Windex. Light airs are a good test of cruising boat and the Xc-42 was clearly revelling in it; hard on the wind at 44 degrees with 5.5 knots of boat speed. Taking my hand off the helm didn’t change our track much, showing a balanced sail plan and a good energy saver for the optional Raymarine autopilot. The nearby hefty Andersen primary winches allowed me to easily trim the genoa and underfoot a simple slab of teak kept my feet secured. The narrow confines of our sailing area meant plenty of tacking. So nimble was the Xc-42 that I oversteered for several tacks, while moving easily across the boat between the twin helms. As the wind gusted into double digits the boat heeled over then dug her shoulder in before continuing on. Clearly the Xc 42 was a performer (as her Sail Area Displacement Ratio of 19.78 shows), perhaps at the expense of some stability but fast passage making would undoubtedly be her forte. With the mouth of the Parramatta River fast approaching I dropped the helm to bear away then gybed my way back towards Birkenhead. Grabbing a handful of mainsheet took little effort to control the fully-battened sail and I noted 7.7 knots in the nine-knot wind. Nice. Approaching the marina I went forward as my host Andrew Parkes released the halyard, and guided the mainsail into the lazy jacks before rewinding the genoa, then cranked the motor. Keen to check out the handling under power, I steered the boat along the marina backwards. She showed no prop bias or walk, as you’d expect from a modern cruiser, but for those tight marinas a bow thruster is available. Undoubtedly the Xc-42 is for the discerning sailor who has probably done an apprenticeship on mass-market boats, so can appreciate the difference that these quality Danish cruisers offer.

Comparable boats Oyster 46 -- The hand built 46, the entry-level Oyster, is a serious blue-water cruiser with centre cockpit, deck saloon interior and varied sailplan. The marque has also recently began distribution in Australia Hallberg Rassy 412 -- This model launches next year and is from the famed pen of German Frers with the emphasis firmly on quality and longevity. Very much a classic design but plenty of modern options including electric winches and in-mast reefing. Dufour 445 -- After a recent ownership change the French builder is resurgent and the 445 has been nominated for European Boat of the Year, thanks to a combination of quality build and value for money.

X-Yachts Xc 42 : tested the hard way

xc42essais.jpg

03/2009 –

After her first tests in hard conditions, the Xc 42 shows to be stable and consistent with the philosophy of the new “Cruising” range of X-Yachts. This range aims at enabling the shipyards’ fans to sail more quietly. The new hull , larger and deeper, appears to be safer though the sail capabilities of the northern yachts are still the same. After the Xc 45 that NauticNews.com visited during last Nautic in Paris, the new range has been completed by a 42 ft, while the 50 ft is due to be launched in 2010.

The range seduces

End of January, in the Baltic sea, the team of X-Yachts tested her last born yacht. Traditionnaly, those tests are performed before the production starts. It is then still possible to correct the last details before the first shippings. But, showed for the first time during last Düsseldorf boat show where the Xc 45 was awarded “Best European Sailing Yacht” [ see our article ] the Xc 42 reached expectations. Niels Ditmar, X-Yachts’ head engineer and a former Admiral’s Cup and One Ton winner was really pleased: “She has such high stability and long waterlines that the gusts just made her heel a few degrees more and accelerate. She was a joy to sail and very comfortable despite the freezing conditions.” The testings of the second sailing yacht of the “Cruising” range validated the choices of the shipyard. These choices are probably part of the success of the Xc 45 (30 units already sold) and of the Xc 42 (20 units ordered). The shipyard seems to be successful in its daring bet that consists in proposing cruising yachts after 30 years spent on regattas. NauticNews.com Tech Specs of Xc 42 .

The World’s Most Expensive Yachts—Including Some That Cost Billions

By Brett Berk

most expensive yachts

Though superyachts are already among the most costly consumer items available, the prices of the most expensive yachts in the world are still astounding. In recent decades, those with money to burn have settled on these floating palaces as an ideal locus for demonstrating their prosperity, and, as such, the global luxury yacht industry is undergoing a golden age. The world’s überwealthy think of their motor yachts as toys, and they’re constantly trying to outdo each other in scale, design, amenities, materials, and sheer profligacy.

Knowing this, what features does it take to own one of the most expensive yachts in existence? And how much do these opulent vessels actually cost? To that end, AD has compiled a list of the five priciest superyachts currently out on the water. As with many things connected to the very wealthy, details are shrouded in secrecy—often intentionally—to shield the assets from taxation or seizure, or to protect privacy.

Below, dive into the five reportedly most expensive yachts in the world.

5. Dubai ($400 million)

Image may contain Transportation Vehicle Yacht and Boat

This 531-foot yacht is reportedly owned by United Arab Emirates Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Ruler of Dubai. Though it was originally planned for another Middle Eastern potentate, Prince Jefri Bolkiah of Brunei, he suddenly voided the contract in 2001. With exteriors designed by Andrew Winch and interiors by Platinum Yachts, this German-built Blohm + Voss vessel features several Jacuzzis, a pool inlaid with handmade mosaic tiles that is reportedly large enough to hold 115 people, a circular staircase, a discotheque with an appropriately sized dance floor, squash courts, a movie theater, a dining room for 90 guests (the other 25 presumably have to eat in the pool?), a helipad, and a submarine.

4. Topaz ($527 million)

most expensive yacht

Resembling a stealth bomber, this 483-foot ship is reportedly owned by Russian fertilizer and coal oligarch Andrey Melnichenko. With exteriors by Tim Heywood Design Ltd. and interior designs by Terence Disdale Design, this German-built Lürssen Yacht features a 2,500-square-foot primary bedroom, six guest suites (with moveable walls so they can be transformed into four grand staterooms), glassware and tableware fashioned from French crystal, a helicopter hangar, a 30-foot speedboat tender, and three swimming pools, including one with a glass-bottom dangling menacingly above a disco.

3. Azzam ($600 million)

most expensive yachts

This 590-foot ship is currently thought to be the largest private yacht in the world and one of the fastest, with a top speed of 35 miles per hour. To achieve this immense scale and speed, it required a pair of gas turbines and two stratospherically potent diesel engines, rendering it very difficult to build. It is reportedly owned by a member of the royal family of the UAE, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. With exteriors by Nauta Yacht and interiors by French decorator Cristophe Leoni, this yacht was also built by Lürssen in Germany. The vessel is set apart by its early 19th-century Empire-style veneered furniture, as well as its state-of-the-art security systems, including a fully bulletproof primary suite and a high-tech missile deterrence capabilities.

2. Eclipse ($1.5 billion)

most expensive yachts

In addition to being the second-costliest, this 533-footer is thought to be the world’s second-largest private yacht. Owned by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich , the ship was claimed to be located in Turkey and may be impounded as part of the United Kingdom’s sanctions against Russia. Designed by Terry Disdale and built by Blohm + Voss, it features two-dozen guest cabins, two swimming pools, two helipads, and multiple hot tubs. For privacy and security reasons, it hosts a missile detection system, bulletproof windows in the primary bedroom and on the bridge, an anti-paparazzi shield, and, when all of that fails, a mini-submarine that can take a few VIPs 164 feet under the ocean’s surface.

1. History Supreme ($4.8 billion)

History Supreme has never actually been seen in a major port, and rumors suggest that the yacht may not be real and instead just a publicity stunt. Reportedly owned by Malaysia’s richest man, Robert Kuok, and designed by Stuart Hughes in the UK, the yacht is only a paltry 100 feet long. Its worth is said to be derived from its lavish finishes, including a statue constructed from genuine Tyrannosaurus rex bones, a liquor bottle embedded with an 18.5-carat diamond, and a primary bedroom with one wall made from meteorite and another from a 24-karat gold Aquavista Panoramic Wall Aquarium. If you see it somewhere, let us know.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much is Jeff Bezos’s yacht?

Most Expensive Yachts

This is why people like Amazon founder Jeff Bezos work to keep their yachts out of the public eye. Though we are not including Jeff Bezos’s yacht, Koru (Maori for “coil”), in this list because it is a sailing yacht and thus excluded from the realm of these motor yachts, it created controversy in the Netherlands when its presence became known. Jeff Bezos’s abided the $500 million price tag of Oceanco, the Dutch custom yacht builder, to create the 417-foot megayacht. But when the company, at Bezos’s behest, requested that a local bridge be dismantled to make way for its gigantic mast on its journey from the shipyard, public sentiment turned against the cento-billionaire, and Oceano shelved its request. Maybe a port like Monaco would be more accommodating?

Also not on this list is the world’s largest private yacht, reportedly owned by Alisher Usmanov. Though size and cost typically scale in the world of superyachts, this is not always the case (see #1 in this list.) Also, Somnio, the 728-feet dream-monikered yacht liner that tops our list of the world’s largest private yachts , isn’t quite done being constructed. And it is not, like most of the largest superyachts, privately owned by one individual or family—it’s a kind of floating condo, with 39 eight-figure homes available to potential owners solely by invitation.

Roger Federer Just Rocked One of Rolex’s Coolest Sports Watches

x yacht 42

By Oren Hartov

Image may contain Wristwatch Arm Body Part Person Accessories Glasses Formal Wear Tie and Adult

Earlier this week, at the New York premiere of his new documentary Federer: Twelve Final Days , tennis icon and Rolex testimonee Roger Federer strapped on the Yacht-Master II ref. 226627—a watch so lightweight that I feared, upon first handling it in Geneva last year, that I might crush it, thus owing Rolex corporate headquarters a check for $14,050 (plus tax).

The ref. 226627 was not Rolex’s first titanium watch—that distinction belongs to the 50mm-wise Deepsea Challenge , which was seemingly designed for James Cameron to wear while plumbing the depths of the Atlantic for sunken ocean liners. The Yacht-Master II, on the other hand, is arguably more exciting: Measuring a more comfortable 42mm wide, it was first spotted on the wrist of skipper (and fellow Rolex testimonee) Sir Ben Aislney back in the fall of 2021. No longer a prototype and now a full production model, it’s crafted from Grade 5 RLX titanium and is available for purchase. ( Theoretically, at least. )

Roger Federer attends the Federer Twelve Final Days Premiere during the 2024 Tribeca Festival

What makes this Submariner-esque watch different from, well, a Submariner ? The two are admittedly similar in design, with a few key differences: There’s the RXL titanium case, of course, but then there’s also the 42mm sizing (as opposed to 41mm on the Sub); a bidirectional timing bezel with a sand-blasted Cerachrom insert (instead of the Sub’s unidirectional dive bezel); the date window (which is only seen on Submariner Date models); and the matching, RLX titanium Oyster bracelet with Oysterlock folding clasp and Easylink comfort extension. (The Sub doesn’t have an available titanium bracelet.)

Other than that, both the Submariner Date and the Yacht-Master II are powered by Rolex’s automatic Calibre 3235 movement with 70 hours of power reserve, and both are made for aquatic use. The Sub, however, is a diver’s watch rated to 300m of water resistance; the Yacht-Master II, on the other hand, is made for sailing and is water resistant to 100m—still respectable, to be sure, but best kept to the deck of a cutting-edge racing craft.

Seeing the Yacht-Master II on Federer’s wrist is more fun than notable—it looks perfectly at home when paired with his dark suit at the photocall, though it's a distinctly sporty piece made to be used and abused. Being a Rolex testimonee, of course, Federer has been spotted in just about every notable Crown offering over the past few years, from the Le Mans Daytona to the Sky-Dweller in precious metals and more. (The man pulls off a dressy 1908 with black tie beautifully, but let’s be real—this is a brand famed for its sport watches, and we’re talking about one of the world’s most renowned athletes.) Having cycled through many of the brand’s most compelling offerings, the only remaining pertinent question is: How do we get Fed into a “Leopard” Daytona ?

Travis Scott Spotted Leaving Miami After Arrest, Boards Private Jet

Travis Scott Spotted Leaving Miami After Arrest, Boards Private Jet

Travis scott arrested for disorderly intoxication in miami, sparked by yacht argument, travis scott poses for mug shot after miami arrest sparked by yacht argument.

6:22 AM PT -- According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, cops say they came out to a marina near Miami Beach -- where they responded to a fight on one of the boats. Upon arrival, cops say they encountered Travis Scott , who they say was arguing with occupants on one of the yachts there ... and the person who reported him told the officers to get him the hell out of there.

Cops say they started to escort Travis away from the boat -- at which point they claim he was yelling obscenities at the people aboard -- and once they got past the docks and back to the street area ... where Travis had a ride ready to go.

Cops say Travis told them if he got into the car he was "gonna catch a fade" -- and then they say he was driven away ... only to return 5 minutes later, with the cops posted up and seeing him attempt to head back to the boat. They say they intercepted him ... and claim TS became erratic and belligerent, at which point they arrested him. BTW, they say Travis reeked of booze during all this ... hence the disorderly intoxication charge he was booked on.

Sources close to Travis tell us he's already posted bond and been released, and they see the incident as a "minor charge." In terms of the actual incident, we're told he was just partying and that things got a little out of hand between Travis and the staff when he refused to leave ... but the situation never got violent.

And, it's evident Travis doesn't see his arrest as any big deal ... based on the fact he reposted his mugshot with some enhancements -- headphones and shades.

Travis Scott got arrested for being drunk in public out in Florida -- and his mug shot is a sobering one.

The rapper was taken into custody by cops at the Miami Beach Marina early Thursday morning and booked into the county jail for trespass and disorderly intoxication. He also had to pose for a booking photo on his way in and, as you see, he was not a happy camper.

Official details on what exactly went down aren't available yet ... but we're working on it.

Houston police launched an investigation into the Astroworld tragedy, but Travis was never criminally charged . He's also been arrested for inciting a riot in the past ... and he's been named as a suspect for alleged assaults too -- but those charges ultimately never stuck.

We reached out to Travis' camp ... so far no word back.
