The X-35 is a proposed by X-Yachts in 2005. Unlike the other boats of the shipyard, she is not dedicated to IRC or IMS rating, but she has a one-design vocation. She gets this status quickly and was recognized by ISAF in 2006.

On deck everything is designed for performance and precise adjustments. The huge wheel associated with the deep rudder allows perfect control. The hardware is blameless with an impressive series of swivel blockers to fine tune when hiking or 3 pairs of winches which one has two diameters (Harken Quattro). Performance is very good especially in light wind when the high ratio sail plan allows going faster than the wind. In the breeze she becomes a bit tricky downwind.

Inside everything is there for cruising, including space. Philosophy race remains present with for example no bulkhead for the two aft cabins.
