 X-Yachts have always been known to be designed by Sailors for Sailors and the largest of the fleet is no exception in any way. She is a great performer, yet, very comfortable sailing with hydraulic winches, Reckmann furlers for the foresails and in boom furling for the main sail. 

This X73 has excellent sailing abilities due to her tall rig and double wing keel and very easy handling systems. Her unusual cockpit layout provides extra protection whilst her interior offers a lot more space than other sisterships of her size. Deck saloon with panoramic outlook.

PULSAR II has enjoyed a good life where the owners have not saved on costs. In 2015 and 2016 investments were made.  The key jobs were: new 11MM Burmese Teak laid decks. Bowthruster refit and new anchor. 2016 saw some good work done as well: new gelcoat and full paint job on the superstructure and cockpit. All Reckmann equipment was refurbished. In 2017 a brand-new tender was brought on board. This yacht with its special open interior plan, hence fewer doors and yet light flooded, is something to see to appreciate.

Hull and Deck construction

Isotalic Polyester sandwich construction with biaxial E-glass fabrics.
Awlgrip Corinthia blue hull
Core material is 20-40 mm Divinycell of different densities vacuum bagged into the outer skins.
Solid laminate around keel steel girder, rudder bearings, and at all "through hull" fittings such as sea cocks and bow thruster exit.
Hull laminated with extensive use of biaxial E-glass fabrics.
Structural bulkheads are of composite sandwich decorated with 4 - 6 mm teak marine plywood, securely bonded to both hull and deck. Watertight bulkhead separating the sail/crew cabin and the owner's cabin.
11 mm teak decks (from 2015) at front and side decks, at coach roof in front of the doghouse and at outer cockpit coamings, at seats and floors in cockpit and at stern steps - and finally at stern ports "inside" as well as at the aftmost floor behind the lazarette and inside lazarette.

Heat galvanized TPS steel sections welded together into an extended H-frame, typical for X-Yacht construction. This frame takes up all the loads from keel and mast.

Van Oossanen double wing 13,6 ton keel, providing 30% less resistance due to side force, as well as increased stability when sailing upwind, resulting in a better performance.

Electrically/hydraulic switch operated opening transom, chain driven by hydraulic motors.
The transom port while opening is a practical bathing platform with a recessed folded stainless steel bathing ladder.
The transom steps have teak treads.
The gas tank is placed in protective PVC box with plexi glass cover for extra protection.
