Last week, the Red Baron, the X-Power 33C was launched for the first time. It was a big moment in the company history...
Friday, it was time to test drive and to become familiar with the performance of the engine and the functionalities of the electronic equipment;
CEO, Kræn Brinck Nielsen was thrilled: "We decided to keep the launch and test drive internally. But to be honest, I can't wait to show off this new beauty!"
X-Yachts opens its doors again in the days of 15 - 17 January in Haderslev. On 16ᵗʰ January, the X-Power 33C will be unveiled and christened. The first presentation can be followed by livestream for those not able to attend the boat show.
Facts about Petestep technology
In the production of X-Power 33C, we are using the patented Petestep technology that results in a more comfortable and fuel efficient boat ride.
No more clatter in waves! Because Petestep hulls don’t have any horizontal flat surfaces that smash the water under the hull, the biggest source of hull noise is removed. This makes Petestep hulls create a lot less noise from waves, which significantly adds to the comfort of the ride.
Petestep hulls increase stability, both at speed and at the dock. At zero speed, Petestep hulls have a wider footprint that makes the boat less prone to heeling. When at speed, the deflectors stabilise the boat, once again contributing to a better ride.
Petestep hulls reduce resistance by removing friction and reducing energy waste. Up to 35% less energy is required to propel the boat forward, which could lead to significantly lower fuel consumption at comparable level of comfort.
Conventional spray rails with their flat surfaces are associated with hard landings. Petestep® deflectors, on the other hand, dampens landings and lowers slamming by up to 50%, resulting in unmatched ride comfort.
