Guide to new boats

2014 September 1

A new crop of exciting sailboats—from performance-oriented dinghies to drop-dead gorgeous flagships—is coming to a boat show near you

Xc 35

X-yachts’ Xc 35 has a heavier displacement and deeper hull sections than boats in its size range, giving the 35 a more comfortable motion in swells than other performance cruisers. The Xc 35 is meant to last: It is offered with teak side decks applied with a durable vacuum technology. The optional stainless steel A-frame forward secures the anchor and is used to fly the asymmetrical spinnaker. LOA 34’; Beam 11’6”; Draft standard, 6’3”, shallow 5’3”; Displ. 14,220 lbs.; Price $215,600; www.x-yachts.com
