Modern Classic

New M-Series X-Type yachts are designed to dial-up our M-Series with enhanced sailing performance. We started with the award-winning quality, distinctive good looks, and innovative engineering that goes into every M-Series we build, then we partnered with Sparkman & Stephens to push the design envelope to ensure maximum sailing performance in all conditions. We added go-fast features like a tall carbon fiber rig from Hall Spars and high-performance 3Di sails from North Sails. A deep high aspect ratio fin keel to provide rock-solid stability and enhanced sail carrying ability. A carbon fiber wheel to deliver finger-tip control. And each slippery fast hull faired to ultra-precise tolerances and covered with drag reducing bottom paint.X-Type models redefine what a luxury performance boat can be.
