“The Annapolis Sailboat Show 2015 brought the new X-Yachts into our world and our eyes got big. We had seen older X-Yachts – in fact, there was one on our dock for a number of years – one of the older models with the huge wheel which was almost taller than my partner Peggy at 5’1”. They just weren’t an option for us; however, we did get to know the owners and were well aware of how well these beautiful Danish-built boats sailed.
Shortly after the boat show not one but two Xp 44s appeared at our marina. One of them was at the end of our dock (was it destiny?). The owner was very excited about his new acquisition and eager to share. He invited us aboard. He was happy to have us examine every nook and cranny which we did – something you can’t readily do at the boat show. He also raved about his visit to the factory in Haderslev, how he saw first hand the process and how well built they are. It was magical. Both Peggy and I fell hard, totally smitten. Every time we were at the marina we would wander over to sneak another look and pine.”
… after having bought the boat, the American couple concluded:
“There are so many fabulous things about this boat and we have not even said anything about the interior yet! It is light, spacious and modern with extremely comfortable microfiber cushions. The galley is nicely laid out with a stylish tinted glass splashback. We opted for the top loading fridge/freezer along with the front loading refrigerator for ample food storage – both can used as a freezer or refrigerator, simply amazing flexibility to fit our coastal cruising as well as the Bay. The v-berth is heavenly. There’s lots of storage throughout and she’s beautiful.”
