X-Yachts unveiled its new 56 foot cruising sailboat
The X56 is one of the largest X-Yachts produced in Denmark.
North Sails is the sail manufacturer of choice that adapted the full 3Di OCEAN inventory of the X56 for sea trials in light to medium conditions.
The perfect fit for a high-performance cruiser like the X56, 3Di OCEAN evolved from the original 3Di and strikes a balance between performance and reliability.
“The first hull has already provided a distinctive large-ship feeling of safety and comfort, where almost anything can be operated at the touch of a button if desired,” explains Thomas Mielec, Director of Design and Engineering at X-Yachts. . “This also means that large amounts of technical equipment have to be tested, adjusted, calibrated, etc. to ensure that it works as designed and designed.”
The first series of sea trials focused on sail handling, sail balancing, rigging adjustment, alignment and tuning of the dual rudder system. The North Sails team hopes to re-launch the ship for a heavier air test of the remaining sail inventory, which includes a Helix Structured Luff Code sail and a jib sail. This will allow them to get a better idea of the yacht’s capabilities before it returns to the assembly hall for final interior fitting.
The world premiere will take place in the X-Yachts showrooms in Denmark on January 16, 2021.
