Originally launched in June 2008 as hull no.47 (of 63 built between 2004 and 2011), VIXEN was custom-built for her first owner with a modified forward cabin arrangement, designed to provide a larger double berth (complete with Tempur mattress) and extensive additional storage in a corridor cabin between the saloon and the forecabin. A dedicated drying room is also located in place of the shower cubicle in the aft starboard heads.
Sailed around Swedish waters by her first owner, VIXEN returned to the X-Yachts factory in Haderslev in 2012/13 for fitment of replacement teak decks and then sailed to Gothenberg where she remained until late 2014 and her sale to her second and current owner.
Since 2014, VIXEN has been based in Stockholm and has been used for family sailing during the summer months only in the Baltic Sea with her winters spent ashore undercover. In total she has covered less than 7,800Nm since launch. She is now offered for sale to make way for a new boat.
