The use of heat galvanised steel to create a support structure for the mast and keel was pioneered by X-Yachts in 1981. Since then the Danish yard has produced more than 6,000 yachts featuring this technology and has won worldwide recognition for the strength of their designs.
Her hull, keel and rudder configuration gives the helmsman a very light and direct feel of the yacht, and she responds immediately to minor corrections.The X-41 is not only a serious racing performer but also a comfortable cruiser. X-Yachts has concentrated hard, and without compromise, on details that work for both racing and cruising alike. The growing international fleet is proof that they succeeded. The optional anchor box, including electrical anchor windlass and chain, can be removed within minutes. The optional sprayhood is also quickly and easily removed. The optional deck recessed furling headsail system is great for cruising, but can quickly be removed and replaced for a dedicated racing forestay.
