Light, Strong, and Stiff
With the introduction of the X-65 in 2007, X-Yachts started to infuse hulls for performance yachts utilising epoxy resin. Epoxy infusion construction offers fantastic control over the laminate allowing it to be optimised to maximise strength and stiffness, whilst saving weight.
In the X56 all weight saved, is used to increase the yacht’s stability, enabling the crew to have a more relaxed time and to feel safer and more comfortable. The fact, that the hull is cured, baked at high temperatures for almost 24 hours, not only optimises the hull material properties, but also minimises the risk of the darker coloured hull surfaces to suddenly start posturing, losing the surface finish.
With over 10 years of experience building epoxy infused yachts, X-Yachts took the decision in 2018 to build all models using this technology, one of the only yacht builders to do so.
Danish design and architecture is famous for its clean, timeless style. The X56 is a showcase of luxury interior design; the yacht has a great sense of light and space, whilst maintaining practicality and functionality, with a design that works out on the open seas as well as moored in a harbour.
The flush deck hatches and coachroof side windows allows a lot of light into the boat and offers great ventilation. Large hull windows offers fantastic views from the spacious saloon.
Quality Interior Materials
The X56 is offered in a range of finishes: Nordic Oak veneer is standard on all furniture, or optional teak can be chosen.
All veneers are hand-selected in Italy by our specialists, from one of the most exclusive suppliers for the marine market for high quality yachts.
When combined with the top-quality craftsmanship X-Yachts is famous for, this translates to affordable luxury. As with all models in the range, there are a large number of options for soft furnishings;
Interior Layout Options
Four different interior layouts are offered for this model. Please see photos for details.
The standard mast is an aluminium 3 spreader mast with discontinued rod rigging and racing turnbuckles. Option is a carbon mast, and a Furler Boom with carbon mandrel.
It could be argued that the sailplan for any yacht is one of its most important features. From the inception of the Pure X Range, flexibility has been key. X-Yachts took the best from our performance and cruising ranges, which is why you’ll find the X56 can be specced with a self-tacking jib for ease of handling when short handed and longitudinal genoa tracks to maximise sailing performance - the choice is yours.
The X56 has a large moulded bowsprit as standard allowing asymmetric spinnakers to be flown from the front and has space for a Code-0 furler in front of the main forestay, the innovative new shape of the bow allows both the furlers to be pushed further forward maximising the J measurement to improve upwind performance.

From an early age, Gregâs father taught him the value of a dollar earned from hard work and shared with him the joys of a life on the water. These two things would form the framework for Gregâs life.
After graduating from NC State with a BA in Communications concentrating in mass media, Greg satisfied a bit of pent-up wanderlust. He lived in different coastal areas of the United States from San Diego to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, surfing, sailing, and working fulfilling yet obligatory jobs in his field of study before defiantly choosing to stick with his love of boating as his lifeâs work.
Greg muses that he is âjoyfully unemployable in any other endeavorsâ, and he works hard every day to help buyers and sellers make the right decisions. Part broker, part counselor, he finds fulfillment in a very demanding work ethic that requires constant attention to the needs of clients as they make changes to their life and lifestyle, moving in or out of boating or making changes to their choices within their boating life. Whether itâs the clean slate of a new build or the acquisition of the perfect pre-owned boat, Greg revels in the excitement and participates joyfully in the range of emotions that are the buying and selling of the single most worthwhile pursuit in this life: boats.
He holds a USCG 100 Ton Master Captainâs license, a Florida Yacht Brokerâs license, and he is a Certified Professional Yacht Broker and member of the Yacht Brokerâs Association of America. As an owner of both power and sailboats, he can be found quite often on the waters of Charleston Harbor and beyond.
