|The Xc 42 will follow the same conceptual ideas as the Xc 45. The idea is to offer a cruising yacht with more focus on long distance bluewater cruising. The same build and design qualities found on the performance range will also be found here, but more attention has been paid to the needs of the cruising sailor. The specification and conception mirrors X-Yachts determination to make high quality oriented yachts. The needs of a cruising family are the foremost prerequisites, but the designers have worked hard not to compromise on performance. A fine balance has been created.|

3-cabin version - standard The Xc 42 comes standard in a 3-cabin version. The symmetrical aft cabins have wardrobes, shelves and cabinets. The engine is the newly developed Yanmar 4JH4 - AE, 4 cyl 54 HP freshwater cooled,with integrated KMG 65E power generator. This removes the need for a dedicated generator compartment, and creates a larger aft cabin volume and wider double berths.
2-cabin version with work station A 2-cabin version is available where the starboard aft cabin has been replaced by a work station and a deep cockpit locker. The work station provides ample space for tools and spare parts, a work tabletop, and improved access to the engine compartment.
Alternatively, an en suite shower compartment, with access from the starboard head, replaces the dedicated Nav station. The starboard sofa is replaced by two facing armchairs, separated by a Nav table. There is ample space for the switchboard, and for navigational and communication equipment, by the aftmost of these two armchairs.
