Owner's Comments

After having sailed several years on various Dehlers, we were looking for our new sailing yacht that had to match the quality we were used to but would offer some more comfort. When we first saw the Xc 42 we reckoned we would sacrifice some performance but gain in the comfort, and ordered her without having test sailed.

Upon delivery we were very pleasantly surprised, as she offered us an increase in performance while being much more comfortable. The interior space, her behaviour at sea and overall finish has really impressed us over the years and we are sure she will be equally impressive to her new owners!
