Combining a 35-year heritage of performance yacht design and the very latest in contemporary yacht design and build technology, the Xp range is the fourth generation of performance yachts by X-Yachts. Xp 44 and Xp 38 launched in 2011, the next years followed Xp 50, Xp 55 and Xp 33.
X-Yachts believe these boats represent the most advanced yachts available in the market today, no other series production yard supplying boats in this size range, offer epoxy infused hulls with carbon hull structure built into a epoxy infused hull-liner. Epoxy infusion is an expensive but superior build technology which creates the lightest possible structure, giving us the ability to offer yachts, which are perhaps slightly lighter, but primarily having a larger proportion of their total displacement deep down in the lead bulb.
This year, X-Yachts has had a serious look into where we might be able to improve the Xperformance range; Keels and rudders will become refined and for the larger models we will increase the lead bulb weight.
The external appearance of each model of the Xperformance will become refreshed by a few means:
Xp 50 & Xp 55 have new interiors including new optional brushed oak wood furniture with walnut floorboards and new fixtures and fittings throughout.
The Xp yachts can be highly customised with many exclusive features.
The Xp range is designed to be truly dual-purpose, and each model is offered with both standard aluminium and optional high aspect carbon rigs. The Xp 33, 38, 44 and 50 are also offered with a T-bulb keel in either standard or deep draught, while Xp 55 owners may choose from a number of keel options.
The X-Yachts steel keel frame has been updated with a new carbon/composite structure which gives an improved strength to weight ratio for hull impact resilience and rig stability with a lighter overall weight.
Asymmetric headsails and under-deck furlers ensure owners can switch simply between short-handed and fully crewed sailing modes. The Xp 38, Xp 44, Xp 50 and Xp 55 feature a choice of four multifunctional bowsprit options for flying asymmetric or ‘Code’ sails and easy anchoring, while the Xp 33 has a modern retracting bowsprit, and every Xp may also carry a symmetric spinnaker pole.
