X-Yachts introduces the X-Power 33C

X-Yachts, known for building high performance sailing yachts, is introducing a 33-feet open powerboat.

Produced using the company’s ethos of ‘fast and safe on the water, superior pleasure with ownership, innovative development and design’, the X-Power 33C is planned for launch in January 2021.

CEO of X-Yachts, Kræn Brinck Nielsen, explains: “What we are creating here is unique. With this powerboat, we are appealing to people who love to go on the water and to become one with the sea for the weekend, or to spend an active day offshore. Like with our sailboats, high quality and safety goes hand in hand with performance in this new product line.”

X-Yachts celebrated its 40 years anniversary in 2019, and honouring this milestone the decision was made to start up powerboat production with a view to keeping the company moving forwards.

“Our owner, Ib Kunøe, and I discussed what could bring X-Yachts into the 5th decade, and we quickly recognised that introducing a comfortable, ease of use, powerboat on the market would be a very interesting but also a highly challenging assignment,” Nielsen continues.

X-Yachts is confident that the new powerboat range will be well received. The first model is being produced with an inboard engine, a patented petestep® designed hull making the driving experience smooth and elegant. The team also promises that the operation will be ‘an intuitive experience, eliminating the need for a user manual, enabling everyone to run the boat feeling fully secure’.

“We would like to share this boating experience with our loyal long-time and new X-Yacht owners, and in general with people who haven’t had the chance to get familiar with the famous X and what it stands for,” Nielsen adds. “In the coming months, we will show the public what we are working on. In the meantime, everyone can look forward to this new wonder of ours.”
