Own the ultimate Cruiser-Racer.

With her classic lines, bespoke interior and clean teak decks, this 50 foot fast cruising boat is absolutely gorgeous. The last of her model to be launched, Wax Lyrical has been fastidiously maintained by her owner and presents in excellent condition. Her hand polished satin teak interior is immaculate, and her upholstery has been kept under covers since new.

The classic three cabin layout is ideal for guests or families. Each cabin is designed for comfort and privacy with their own ensuites, hanging wardrobes and Lewmar hatches. The owners VIP cabin forward is a standout with an extra large, walk around, island double bed with an opening hatch and Oceanair blinds above. The expansive dining table seats 6 comfortably with two removable teak chairs and as new upholstery. The satin finished teak throughout the boat is of the highest quality and has always been protected while racing. Wax Lyrical has had carpets fitted since new, so her inlaid floors are in as new condition.

Twice a divisional winner in the Rolex Sydney to Hobart, including PHS overall in 2018, The X- 50 offers the best of both cruising and racing. Superbly appointed, she would be ideal to spend months aboard cruising the Whitsundays or South Pacific, yet is also a turnkey racing option, in survey for Cat 1. Her interior works brilliantly for crewed offshore passage making, and she comes with the wardrobe, equipment and pedigree to successfully race offshore. Alternatively Wax Lyrical is perfect for enjoying long summer evenings twilighting on the harbour.

On deck, despite being set up for short handed cruising the X-50 shows X Yachts' racing background. Her headsail furler is installed below the deck, and the batten car and lazyjack set up make for easy raising and lowering of the main. All her control lines are led below the teak allowing for clean lines, and her bimini has a cleverly designed deck recess allowing it to be stowed flush when not being used.

Two power winches allow for simple trimming and her sleek design by Nils Jeppersen mean that fast shorthanded passage making is readily achievable. Recently fitted with a new carbon fibre rudder, she is very responsive on the helm, plus her powerful Volvo engine and bowthruster make getting home and docking easy.

In the cockpit the dual leaf table seats six comfortably and cleverly stows under the deck when not needed. Recessed cockpit compartments allow for storage of life rafts or toys, and there is a massive sail locker in the bow. Her open transom with ladder and shower make swimming easy for all. Touches of quality, such as the Nomen folding mooring cleats and handmade chairs in the saloon all add up to separate the X-50 from other yachts in her range.

Wax Lyrical is a beautifully maintained example of a modern classic. More than capable of bluewater passage making, she is cleverly designed so that she can just as easily be short handed on a Wednesday twilight with family and friends, and with her huge spaces above and below decks she is made for entertaining.
