The redesign features improve helming position both seated and standing due to added coaming and larger wider foot support as known from the X5⁶.
It also gives easier sail handling through optimized positioning of winches, and better comfort through longer cockpit benches.
The characteristic S-bow first introduced with X5⁶, allows for longer integrated carbon bow sprit, standard feature, accommodating an even better integrated stainless steel anchor arm.
On the longer bowsprit, larger and more free flying gennakers ensure better downwind performance.
The cockpit opening into the transom has been redesigned in direction of the more open and sportier look of the X5⁶. Also making it a more welcoming area when moored stern first
Hull, deck and coach roof
The new coaming design enables better winch positions for sail handling. The coach roof portlights have been redesigned and therefore completely flush (no visible hinges) and with increased opening portlights there will also be better ventilation in the main cabin. The visual styling of the portlights has been updated, and the sizes have been increased, now enabling 50 % more light into the cabins.
Pulpits and pushpits have been updated to a more modern styling. The pushpits now come with integrated backstay chainplates as on the X5⁶.
An updated rudder design produces better grip in the water and reduces drag, allowing higher speeds and providing more comfort also during long passages.
New hull and deck structural engineering have reduced the total weight and lowered the center of gravity, and combined with larger downwind sail area, the X4⁹ MKll provides even better overall performance than the MKl.
Both head compartments have been redesigned for more durable and user-friendly design as well as a visual styling update, keeping quality features like corian tabletops.
Better and easier access to available storage space in the main cabin will complement the luxurious interior design.
