Sleeps 6 to 9 - 2 double cabins -1 single cabin
Sailboat built by X-Yachts in Denmark in 1986.
Hull and deck in reinforced fiberglass (closed cell foam).
Laminated galvanized steel frame, stainless steel keel pins, fully laminated keel with the original hull.
We bought her in Brittany two and a half years ago for her good compromise between comfort and sailing performance and for the reputation of the X-yachts yards.
The previous owner has kept her very well. For 10 years he sailed for 1 month out of the year and kept her dry the rest of the year in a shipyard in Nantes (so not in a saline environment).
We therefore took advantage of the fact that the boat was very dry to have the shipyard carry out a preventive anti-osmosis treatment: sanding down to gel-coat (no trace of osmosis) then spraying three coats of epoxy primer.
We then equipped her for the big trip: purchase of a Beaufort Lynx self-steering vane to consume less electricity (the boat is also equipped with a high-performance NKE in-board autopilot with remote control), and two solar panels of 100 W each.
The main strength of this boat is her long distance runner, she is able to sail with very little air and goes upwind very well. Very manoeuvrable, she makes it easy to get in or out of a mooring. A plus for sailing enthusiasts: she eliminates the need for an engine most of the time.
We lived there as a family (two adults, a 10-year-old girl and a cat) for two and a half years and kept her well-maintained along the way. We sell her because we go back to France for a beekeeping project.
