Owner's Comments

We purchased the yacht in good faith back in 2014 and I can confirm we have the most favourable impression and confidence in the Xp38 we sailed her down from Denmark to Guernsey and we have since completed the occasional trip to Jersey and Cherbourg. In our opinion having purchased a total of 19 yachts ranging from 22ft to 66ft the Xp38 certainly tops the list as the most enjoyable boat we have sailed.

It is regrettable in the change of our personal and geographical location that we find ourselves selling the Xp38 in favour of our X-55 in Palma. She has been thoroughly maintained and very little used. I hope you find someone who appreciates this very fine yacht and we would like retain the name Quicksilver. Should any prospective owner wish to talk to me I am freely available.
