X-Yachts Belgium (Escape NV) Escape NV was established by Eddy Verbinnen in 1985 and has been dealing in new and secondhand boats since this date.
In 1995 Escape became X-Yachts dealer and started a close collaboration with the reputed Van der Rest Nautic yard in Wemeldinge in the south of Holland, for deliveries, general service and after sales. At the same time a collaboration was established with ETB Paul De Lange, the Raymarine dealer for Belgium. Since then Paul has done almost all instrument installations on the new delivered X-Yachts and is also a key point in the service of X-Yachts Belgium. A good service for clients was probably the most important reason for the success of the company during almost 30 years.
Has been cruising yachts everywhere in the world since the early 80’s. Eddy (co)owned 4 different X-Yachts in the Med, which gave him a lot of experience for service and cruising in the Med. He has leaded several successful racing campaigns with different X-Yachts from 1996 till 2006.
