X-Yachts’ design team, supervised by Niels Jeppesen has attached great importance to producing a beautiful, timeless and functional teak interior. The headliner of the X-442 MK ll is moulded in white GRP and incor-porates halogen lighting throughout. The custom switch panel is conveniently located at the navigation station and equipped with digital Volt and Amp meters as well as gauges for fuel and water. The panel is divided to handle both 12 V D.C. and 230 V / 110 V shore power and / or ship’s generator supply.
The same level of quality production methods and techniques are used on the X-442 MK ll as implemented for the production of the larger X-Yachts models. Countless curved timber mouldings, carefully selected teak veneer and top quality joinery work all typify the interior of the X-442 MK ll.
Only the best of materials have been used to produce a yacht of true luxury and style. n the galley, all drawers run on ball bearing tracks, and equipment such as the stainless steel 3 burner gas oven, tap fittings, door handles, pressure pumps etc. are all of the highest quality.
Toilet and showering arrangements on the boat are designed with the comfort and privacy of the owner and his guests in mind, all finished with easy to clean inner mouldings, high quality fittings and ample lighting.
The owner’s stateroom is equipped with 2 armchairs, vanity table and plenty of hanging locker space as well as storage below the large double berth.
On deck nothing has been spared to ensure the simple and efficient operation of the X-442 MK ll. All control lines and halyards are led below the deck surface to the cockpit winches, deck recessed anchor winch and anchor chain locker, stainless steel bow roller, open bow pulpit, and optional blue canvas sprayhood which can be nicely stored in an integrated canvas cover.
Parallel with the development and application of cutting edge technology and design in the racing field, X-Yachts has increasingly concentrated on developing contemporary, high caliber performance cruising yachts.
This new line of premier cruising yachts was firmly established in 1990 with the introduction of the X-412. The X-442 MK ll introduced in 1999 embodies all the experience and know-how gained by X-Yachts in creating a true sea going, comfortable cruising yacht, a yacht that combines high level technology with outstanding choice of lines, materials and equipment.
All scantlings, right from the laminate schedule of the hull and decks to the dimensions and choice of materials for the rudder stock, keel bolts and chainplates are controlled and approved by the highly respected American Bureau of Shipping.
The ABS approved rudder stock is directly laminated to the rudder blade to produce an immensely strong structure. The whole rudder blade assembly is then supported by low friction roller bearings at both hull and deck for optimal feel and control. Keel, rig and hull loads are translated directly to a massive 500 kg galvanized floor frame which is a true masterpiece of engineering.
