The design of the X-362 represents a further evolution from the previous IMS models designed by Jeppesen, thanks to performance optimization and the improvement the sports qualities of X models, that have become a true reference in cruising-racing category. The deck is one of the main strengths of the X-362 and it is a perfect compromise between racing and cruising, while the cockpit follows the same layout as the previous models. The bow is protected by a very functional pulpit, moreover the X-362 was the first models where the anchor peak hid the jib furling drum. This solution is very good both from the practical and aesthetic point of view, because it lowers the halyard point of the furling genoa on the deck. At sea, the X-362 displays excellent acceleration and wave cutting skills, with a good stability guaranteed by the favorable weight-ballast ration (43%). Exceptional performances, with fast acceleration and easy planing typical of larger and lighter boats
The story of the Danish shipyard “X-Yachts”, founded by brothers Lars and Niels Jeppesen, began in 1979 with the X-79. In almost 40 years in business, the shipyard manufactured about 60 models, from the acclaimed ISAF One Design class X-99 to the spacious and luxury Performance Cruiser, such as X-6, X-65, IMX 70 and X-73. Currently, the shipyard has divided its production in three main lines: XRacing, for racing models (like the X-35 and X-41); XCruising, for cruisers focused on comfort and style (like the awarded XC 45, XC 42, and XC 38); and XPerformance, that unites high performances and the comfort of a family yacht. In line with the most recent market trends, and the growing importance of power boats/motor yachts segment, X-Yachts acquired the Swedish brand HOC Yachts and it has already designed its first two power boats, the Explorer and the Cruiser, for which we will have to wait the 2021 edition of Dusseldorf Boat Show.
