Niels Jeppeson and the X-Yachts team spent 3 years working on the design of the X-512 setting out to release a boat unlike any other on the market, and that is exactly what they did. Their intention was to release a performance cruiser who’s primary purpose was to sail better than any boat in its size range. X-Yachts said “she must have outstanding sailing characteristics compared to other yachts of her size.”
Every aspect of the build was to make the X-512 a wonderful, capable offshore vessel. Everything from weight distribution, innovative new hull design and all the most high end deck equipment, was used to make the X-512 nothing short of amazing. Jonathan has lived up to the vision of Niels Jeppeson with tens of thousands of miles under the hull. Jonathan’s current owners live aboard full time and keep the boat in top notch condition. They are only selling to move down in size and slow down. In the 2004 the boat was taken to X-Yachts in Denmark for a refit. During the refit they replaced all the exterior teak, moved the traveler to make a more comfortable cockpit, engine overhaul, forward sail locker was made to flush mount, new spray-hood housing for dodger, bow thruster added, all new anodizing for aluminum equipment, and all cushions replaced. An EXTENSIVE amount of other work has all been done as well such as sails, rigging, equipment and much much more! Contact the listing broker for a complete list of upgrades and equipment.
