A highly specified cruiser/racer from the renowned Danish Yard, combining highly regarded build quality with great performance, huge race sail wardrobe, professionally maintained and many great race results – must be sold!
FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
Having been professionally maintained and skippered under her current ownership since 2016, GODSPEED has had many updates, with her most recent refits being done in early 2019, she enjoys a very comprehensive sail wardrobe and has had many impressive race results making her the perfect cruiser/racer as she still enjoys a beautifully crafted interior for comfortable but fast cruising, as X-Yachts are known for. A new commercial project means that the seller is having to sell GODSPEED and let her next owner enjoy her.
Her highlights include:-
“My X-41 ONE DESIGN was totally refitted this year in February and March 2019. All services on engine where done, new “International“ antifouling applied, new furling system on the forestay, new toilet, new wiring, new autopilot. I have won several regattas with her and we did four Atlantic crossings on our own keel. She has a perfect rating, she is not modified and can still sail as a ONE DESIGN racer. Extra Taff Luff is there and there is a cockpit cover. She may only need a new Racing Main sail to be competing at the top of her class. She has just finished the last Austrian Offshore Championship in 3rd place Spring 2019.”
The X-41 is something very special. Never before has a one-design yacht seized the imagination of sailors all round the globe with such speed. The demand from the international sailing community has been unprecedented and 70 of these sleek racers were purchased within 18 months of the design’s launch in 2006. The class continues to grow with the same pace that the X-41 shows on the water. ISAF recognition can only accelerate the popularity of this thrilling design. X-Yachts has a special magic when it comes to the creation of one-designs. The X-79 and X-99 led the way and the X-35, launched in 2005, quickly established classes in more than fifteen countries and has held ISAF-approved World Championships since 2007.
The X-41 is the latest thoroughbred to leave the stable. She is designed to perform under both ORCi and IRC, in addition to one-design racing. She also boasts a beautifully crafted interior and is a comfortable boat to cruise.
Be careful! Sail one of these exciting and adaptable yachts and you may discover that life is not complete without an X-41.
The X-41 has sparkling performance. The long hull length, low centre of gravity and T-keel create a yacht that is stiff and strong. The carbon mast and boom, coupled with a non-overlapping headsail, allow great responsiveness and a choice of rig and deck gear allows owners to create a racer/cruiser to suit their style.
This is a modern and efficient sailing machine and being aboard is a thrilling experience.
Owning an X-41 opens doors to a world of competition and adventure. Impressive IRC and ORCi performance is coupled with a one-design racing that continues to attract the most discerning owners. Some of the world’s best sailors are drawn to an ever-evolving calendar of events that takes in many of Europe’s premiere competitions.
Away from the racecourse the X-41 can show a softer side in cruising mode. Expect quick passage times while enjoying the simple, elegant interior.”

“Alan Andrews details the reasons why /SW/'s Boat of the Year judges declared this versatile racer, "Best Crossover."
“X-Yachts' new 41-foot racer is the boat with which you do anything and everything. With stellar performance, clean design, and attention to detail in its hardware, construction, it was a standout in a crowded field of crossover designs, boats as well suited for racing as they are for cruising…
…The helm on this boat feels great; smooth with no friction in the Jefa rudder bearings and steering components controlled with a 67-inch carbon wheel. Upwind there is a touch of weather helm pressure to keep the helmsman happy and in touch with the boat's feel. The helmsman has terrific visibility from the weather side with the jib tell-tales, oncoming waves, and up-course breeze all visible. Downwind the helm is again light and responsive, but also positive…
…The interior of the X-41 will work well for distance as well as day racing. Aft on each side of the boat, under the cockpit, are double berths with pipe berths. The mid-cabin settee/berths sleep another body to weather on hinged platforms. For the serious racer, the cabin table pulls off its base, revealing a stainless steel tube that now serves as a grab bar/divider to keep the headsails where they are stowed instead of in a pile to leeward…
…X-Yachts have paid a lot of attention to both the broad-brush concept and also to details with the X-41. They have a combination of hull shape, keel, rudder, and rig that sails as a raceboat should, is relatively easy to keep in the groove, and is winning races. The sail-handling areas and interior work well, and many hardware details add to the mix.”
