From 2005, by X-Yachts and Jeppesen, the X-50 is very much a sailor’s yacht. With a powerful, easily managed rig with in boom furling and well-drawn lines, she is every bit a performance cruising yacht. Fully equipped for long distance adventures - she features a generator, watermaker and air-conditioning. Standing rig replaced March 2019 and recent sails. The yacht at present is in very good to go condition.
