The Xc 38 offers superb performance in an easily handled package, ideal for doublehanded sailing. This model was the second yacht in the Xcruising range to be named European Yacht of the Year in the Luxury Cruiser category, on its launch. The judges were particularly impressed by the spaciousness and luxurious levels of comfort in the interior.

Under sail, under motor or in harbour, the Xc 38 may be easily and safely sailed double-handed, yet still offers ample space both above and below decks to accommodate guests and family.

*Base pricing for new boat from factory not including customization or delivery.

40th Anniversary Edition

Following extensive feedback from a large group of Xc owners as well as X-Yachts' experience over the last 10 years, 2019 will see the launch of the X-Yachts 40 Years Anniversary edition of the Xc Range. Today, the Xcruising line encompasses five models - Xc 35, Xc 38, Xc 42, Xc 45 and Xc 50 and are all based on the same principles - a moderate hull shape with increased displacement, allowing for larger engines, batteries, tanks and anchoring gear. They share deep sections, and a forward ‘V’ shape to minimize slamming and make for a comfortable motion when going through waves, either under power or sail. Designed for long-distance passages, the Xcruising line features exten-sive teak decking, and a wide choice of windscreen, sprayhood and bimini op-tions. The Anniversary Edition of the Xc’s builds upon the success of the Xcruising range with an updated specification implementing improvements from feedback gathered from a fleet of over 300 Xc yachts worldwide.

What’s new? 

From this edition of the Xc’s and onwards, the Xc models are built using epoxy infusion in the hull. X-Yachts hulls are post-cured or “oven-baked” to improve structural properties of the composite. Epoxy resin has higher me-chanical and thermal stability than traditional polyester resins. Added value to this production method is weight reduction and increased stability.

Exterior upgrades include:

Vacuum-infused oven-baked epoxy hull

New optional jib self-tacker design

Optional composite bowsprit

New colorways

New option for alternative synthetic teak, Flexiteek. 


Interior upgrades include:

Nordic Oak furniture

New upholstery types

New cushion design

New interior fittings throughout


Systems upgrade highlights include:

New tank displays showing remaining volume

Upgraded ambient lighting.

The upgraded versions of the Xc 38 as well as the Xc 45 will be presented at the Boot in Düsseldorf in January 2019 for the very first time!
