2002 X-Yachts 72 ft 2016 PULSAR II
X73 “Pulsar II” is a fast cruising yacht with unique features and a spacious design. She is the best of all worlds. With her very easy sail handling systems she can be sailed by two. Alternatively, two crew support the owner. Her 2 double cabins plus 3rd bunk bed cabin layout, as well as 3 saloon bunks make her especially attractive. She is maintained to the highest standards, and is just used privately by her current owners. She spent the first 7 years cruising the Baltics and the North Sea, after which the Med and Caribbean. The ‘doghouse’ behind the cockpit, which replaces the more common canvas sprayhood, is an excellent protection in colder weather and when making ocean passages. The tall rig combined with the van Oossanen double wing keel and the typical ‘X hull’ give ‘Pulsar II’ excellent upwind sailing characteristics, reaching 10 knots even in light winds.
Compared to most deck saloon alternatives, the X-73 is designed as a faster, more spacious and safer ship.
