The Xc 47 represents the latest innovation in the XCruising series, crafted for the discerning sailor who dreams of a true bluewater cruiser. With a design honed from years of sailing experience and expertise, this yacht promises unparalleled safe and comfortable sailing across the sea.

Charter our impeccable Xc47 and sail the Greek islands, one of the best sailing arenas in the world.

Comfort & Safety

The cockpit is designed for efficient sail handling by a shorthanded crew, with all necessary controls within easy reach of the helm. The layout includes four strategically placed winches and a repositioned traveller for optimal space utilization and accessibility. The cockpit is deep and well-protected, featuring a closed transom for added safety at sea.

Below deck, the semi deck saloon feels instantly comfortable, understated yet incredible. With a spacious entrance and your time below deck is accompanied with lots of light and ventilation. The X-Yachts design superiority hides behind the vacuum infusion technology on the hull construction, the carbon frame over the keel and the right weight distribution of all the fittings. Elegant laminated teak handrails and attention to detail throughout make you feel at home.

The Xc 47’s interior is cleverly designed with multilevel floors and generous storage spaces, ideal for carrying provisions for extended periods. The spacious aft deck offers a full-width seating area perfect for relaxation and socializing. The modern, wider stern not only enhances performance but also increases living space in the aft cabins.

The 3 cabin layout,  with two generously sized WCs/showers on a 50ft yacht is delivering lots of space everywhere, making living on board a truly relaxing experience. Ideally this yacht will comfortably accommodate 6 adults but can sleep an additional 3 adults or 4 children in the saloon area utilizing the converted dining table into a double bed and the starboard sofa (check Layout & Accommodation details below).

The well-proportioned saloon gives the yacht a spacious feel, but well positioned hand rails and good furniture placement ensure it is always safe and easy to move around no matter the heel angle.

Everything in the interior is a beautifully crafted in the known all time classic X-Yachts way.

The standard full teak bathing platform creates a perfect area for relaxing as well as easy access from the water or dinghy. In this way you can take full advantage of the swim stops or the overnight stays on one of the endless safe anchorages of the Greek archipelago.

The cockpit of the Xc 47 is not only functional for sailing but also luxurious for leisure, featuring comfortable seating and ample space for sunbathing. The innovative layout ensures easy access and a clear separation between operational and living areas, making it perfect for both sailing and relaxation at your favorite anchorages.

A deck shower is fitted as standard. The high back rests not only offer protection while at sea but also create a comfortable seating area on the fitted cockpit cushions.

The Xc47 incorporates 40yrs design experience of the Danish boat yard. A boat you feel sure to spend time on with your friends and family, even when the weather conditions are not ideal.

Built from a vacuum infused epoxy/e-glass sandwich and reinforced with carbon fiber, the Xc 47’s hull is both light and immensely strong. The iconic X-Yachts steel frame integrates seamlessly to handle all loads from the keel and rigging, ensuring safety, stability, and comfort in all sea conditions.

Sailing Performance

 

The Xc 47 epitomizes Danish X-Yachts’ design expertise, engineered to excel in every sailing condition. As soon as you take the helm, the yacht’s impressive capabilities become apparent, delivering exhilarating speeds and superior handling across all points of sail. This yacht is equipped with advanced hydrodynamics and a meticulously crafted sail plan, ensuring optimal performance whether you’re headed upwind or cruising downwind.

The Xc 47 transforms open waters into your personal sailing arena. When sailing through places like the Greek archipelago, this yacht not only meets but exceeds expectations, achieving remarkable speeds and handling that make every journey a thrill. Whether you are leisurely cruising or actively racing, equipped with an asymmetrical spinnaker or harnessing the wind with a full batten main, the Xc 47 consistently demonstrates why it stands out in the world of bluewater cruisers, offering unmatched performance and an exhilarating sailing experience.

Flexible Sailplan, Easy to Handle

Taking full advantage of the aluminium mast, we are tailoring the sailplan of our Xc47 to closely align with the setup of the X4⁶, ensuring it is perfectly matched to the sailing characteristics of the hull and the varied conditions in Greek waters. While details are still being finalized, the plan includes high-quality laminate sails, designed to provide outstanding performance for both holiday cruising and competitive racing. Xc47 will be fitted with:

  • Mainsail: Full batten, with three reefs.
  • Jib: Full 106%.
  • Removable Staysail (optional).
  • Easy furling gennaker (optional).

Ultimate Sail Design

All X-Yachting tri-radial sails have been thoroughly engineered up to every small detail, in order to perfectly match the X-Yachts sailing philosophy and honour the true sailing performance of each boat separately. High end laminate sails for exceptional results.

Our dedication to superior sail design remains firm. Each sail is crafted from high-quality laminate materials, meticulously engineered to optimize performance. While we are finalizing the exact configurations, our goal is to ensure that each sail meets our rigorous standards for durability and efficiency, supporting both leisure and competitive sailing needs.

Accommodation

3 Cabins / 2 WCs / Sleeps 6 adults + 2 adults + 2 children

The layout includes the master bow cabin with a double bed and an ensuite WC with shower, the aft starboard cabin with one more double bed and the aft port side cabin with split bed which can be converted (upon request during booking) to full size double bed. The aft head has an independent entry door from the saloon area so that it can be shared from both aft cabins.  So 6 adults can comfortably sleep without any compromise.

If the team is up for it, another two adults can sleep in the saloon area in the two sofas. Also in both aft cabins there are sea berths which we can install (as an option), on the sides over the main bed, where another two children or agile adults can sleep (one per sea berth). This feature is often used by couples with one child/teenager or so or young friends.
