X- Yachts are synonymous with well-drawn and beautifully built performance cruising yachts. MaXian was commissioned by experienced owners, who were making the shift from a heavier displacement cruising 45 footer. Having sailed many bluewater miles they required a more easily driven hull offering better light wind performance. The X-50 deliverers on all fronts, an easily managed rig delivering effortless performance, spacious cockpit, clutter free decks and superb accommodation below decks. Fully equipped for more extended adventures she is very much a sailor’s yacht.
MaXian has been owned since new by the same pair of joint owners, one of whom is the founding Chairman of The X-Yachts Owners Association. This model was selected by them and the equipment list developed to provide fast and comfortable cruising in both northern waters and the Mediterranean. She is capable of being safely handled by a crew of 2 but can easily accommodate 6 or more in three double cabins all with individual heads. She has never been raced or chartered and has only ever been skippered by either of the joint owners. She has typically had around 8 weeks gentle summer cruising most of which has been in the balmy climate of the Adriatic. Never been grounded and never involved in a collision. She has been lifted out, pressure hosed, sanded and antifouled every spring together with polishing of the hull, topsides and bright work. At the same time all equipment has been serviced and any defects rectified.
