Xc 42

  • Description

    The Xc 42 is a stylish yacht with a focus on comfortable bluewater cruising. She offers all the advantages of a larger yacht – long waterline, three cabin interior and generous sail plan – but with an ease of handling that makes her particularly suitable for short-handed sailing.
    The Xcruising yachts have been created with a distinctive hull design that includes deeper sections to provide a greater interior volume for accommodation, tanks and other essential cruising equipment, and a deeper V-shape midships and forward for improved heavy air handling. A medium to heavy displacement and high keel weight guarantees maximum stability, however X-Yachts’ performance pedigree ensures that every Xc yacht is responsive and rapid in all conditions.
    The Xc 42 is proportionally slightly wider at the aft deck level in order to accommodate the twin wheel steering. There are two recessed port-lights on each side, integrated dark grey waterlines, and a recessed decorative sheer stripe.
    The overall impression of the Xc 42’s deck is clean and uncluttered, with flush mounted, opening deck hatches and stainless steel dorades for optimum ventilation. Halyards are fed underneath the deck and teak surfaces are fitted as standard. A recessed locker in the foredeck provides storage for anchor gear including 50 metres of chain.

    All sail handling is controlled from the cockpit. Halyards, reefing and control lines are led back to the winches on the coach roof, whilst the German-style mainsheet is led to dedicated winches within easy reach of the helmsman. Both the standard furling forestay and the optional self-tacking jib make sail handling simple.

    The mainsheet track has been moved out of the cockpit, onto the coach roof, allowing ease of crew movement from stern to companionway. The optional stainless steel davits enable quick and easy launching of the yacht’s tender from the transom. The anchor locker provides space for the standard 50 metres of chain, as well as additional sail bag storage.
