The X47 was developed as a cruiser that proposes a new marine style where families can enjoy and “island hopping” lifestyle as they travel at high speed from the marina to spend time together on uninhabited islands or at sea. Yanmar has utilized its deep experience in marine engineering technology to realize an exciting vessel that marries tremendous performance and luxury.

With a maximum speed of 40 knots (approx. 74 km/h), the Express Cruiser is powered by three high-power clean diesel engines with sterndrive units in an arrangement that is more compact compared to normal engines, to maximize living space in the boat.

The streamlined cabin shape with reduced height not only has nimble sports car-like styling, but also offers aerodynamic performance at high speeds in a design that is less susceptible to the wind.
